Cape Fear

Robert De Niro is horrifying in his role as an ex-con looking for revenge on the lawyer that failed to keep him out of prison. I was surprised however to find out that Martin Scorsese directed the film. The black and white negative spots littered throughout just don't work for me.

A good movie

I had already seen this movie but since it was ages ago and since I had this movie on DVD, I was quite eager to check it out again. Well, to be honest, I always had some mixed feelings about this movie. I mean, if you would compare it to all the garbage Robert De Niro is making nowadays or any average thriller coming from Hollywood, it is actually pretty dammed entertaining but if you would compar... read more

In general I avoid seeing remakes of classics, but when the name "Martin Scorsese" is plastered all over the poster even I cannot resist the urge to check it out.

“Not one of Martin Scorsese's best films by a long shot (though he has also done worse). This said, as said in my review for 'Hugo', even when Scorsese was not at his best the films in question were still better than the worst films of most. This is also coming from a director who when at his best, like with 'Goodfellas', 'Raging Bull' and 'Taxi Driver' for examples, gave some of the best films out there.

'Cape Fear' is a remake of the 1962 film with Gregory Peck and Robert Mitchum. While the remake may be slicker visually (the earlier film is still very well made instead, but Scorsese's film is gorgeously audacious) and be bigger and more expansive in its themes and character complexities, there is a vast personal preference for the more atmospheric, creepier and more eerie earli” read more
