Surprisingly Good

6 years, 12 months ago at Jul 6 21:31
Just came across this the other day on TV and was surprised to find that it was pretty good. Robert DeNiro plays freaky sooooo well in this movie. Almost too well.
View all The Fan reviews
Description: Lurid thrillers don't get much more shameless than this movie, in which Robert De Niro plays a pathological baseball fan whose obsession is focused on a San Francisco Giants all-star outfielder (Wesley Snipes). While the newly signed baseball star is having trouble getting his favorite uniform number from a competitive teammate (Benic ... (more)

A Complete review of Tony Scott's work (17 movies items)

" Cast : Robert De Niro, Wesley Snipes, Ellen Barkin, John Leguizamo, Benicio Del Toro What was it about? An all star baseball player becomes the unhealthy focus of a down on his luck salesman. My two cents: Do you remember the time when Robert de Niro used to be the greatest actor ever and you would sh*t your pants everytime this guy was showing up on your screen? I know, that's a long time ago... Anyway, in this flick, he gave probably his last awesome performance. I mean, it is"

"(Rewatch) 1 point dropped. De Niro makes an good solid Cape Fear rerun. But still this movie only lasts until the end of credits when u have already forgotten what happened. "

""And it doesn't even count against your average. That's why baseball's better than life - it's fair." Directed by: Tony Scott Starring: Robert De Niro, Wesley Snipes, Benicio Del Toro Rating: 5/10 The last half of this movie is rather good, but the first half fails a bit, and is rather messy. It introduces to much, without following it up. But once we get De Niro to go psycho, it's really enjoyable. "

"Actually, this stands as one of my personal favorites, period. However it doesn't have a ton of depth or new things implemented. "The Fan" knows what it wants it accomplish, and surely does so, pushing the audience into one heck of a trip."

"Very dark, and VERY crazy. This is film is surely not for everyone. Robert Deniro nearly goes back to Taxi Drives Status. A great movie from my point of view. A superb ending as well, that you will not see coming. "

" I diddnt like this movie very much. De Niro does a good job as usual, but other than that this was a pretty boring movie. Snipes was not very good here. I think someone like Denzel Washington would have been a better fit for this role, but like i said, it would probarbly still be boring. I just felt like almost nothing was happening."
