    "Counselor! Come out, come out, wherever you are!"
    - Max Cady

    Cape Fear is by today’s standards, one of Martin Scorsese’s most underrated films, hardly getting a mention by audiences and critics. Similar to how the film’s protagonist buries vital evidence that could’ve saved Max Cady many years in prison, Cape Fear has seemingly gone into obscurity when taking a look at Scorsese’s filmography. A little different from his other Robert De Niro collaborations and functioning more as a horror…

    Not Scorsese's best work. But still, a pretty solid film.

    I kinda expected a bit more from this film. This is obviously a thriller as opposed to most Scorsese films. I do not see a confortable directing in here. It's looks sort of visually outdated.

    Of course the De Niro character is quite memorable and is still considered one of the most creepy ones ever. Of course, it's thrilling and Scorsese gives some badass shots along the film. The Supporting characters didn't seem strong enough.

    Disclaimer: I haven't watched the original so I'll judge this film on its own merit.

    For the most time, Scorsese's Cape Fear works really well but there are some dubious choices that kinda left me wondering if Scorsese really directed this film. For starters, I can't believe he made Goofellas a year before because his direction here seem so... uninspired. It's not bad at all but moments suppossed to be shocking lack any monumentum, and in the complete third act,…

    Que gran reparto haciendo tan buenas actuaciones. Claro, Robert De Niro es EL HOMBRE.
    Por momentos me pareció en momentos lenta, un poco por el hecho de que no se avanzaba debido a las decisiones de sus personajes. Esa necesidad del personaje principal de no revelar información podría parece una idea ingeniosa para mantener atento al espectador pero realmente se vuelve algo tonto. "A huevo, un sádico violador busca vengarse de mi, no les diré nada a mi esposa e…

    Simpsons did it a hell of a lot better, and I'm not being facetious here. There are a few inventive shots here and there, and some of the sequences are excitingly tense, but otherwise there's not much about this that marks it as anything special. The central performances are pretty good, I guess; Deniro is strong as usual, and Nick Nolte proves that he has some range beyond his usual grizzled hardass persona. The story, however, is really just an…

    Robert De Niro is truly my favorite actor of all time. The movie itself was kinda ehh and it was a little silly. But Robert's performance was so over the top and scary and so unusual for him. He really made the film for me.

    Martin Scorsese: Ranked

    «Every man... every man has to go through hell to reach paradise.»
    —Max Cady

    Cape Fear is a very solid and disturbing thriller... With an excellent score; terrific performances by Jessica Lange, Juliette Lewis and Robert DeNiro; and the always elegant and evocative direction by Scorsese, I was more than satisfied. Sometimes cheesy and contrived, but still a great thriller.

    I am finding it hard to understand why Martin Scorsese wanted to remake a nasty, formulaic 1962 thriller whose only "classic" credentials are a terrifying performance by Robert Mitchum and a haunting background score. Starts creepy, but fizzles into a dramatic, overwrought mess. If Scorsese's name wasn't listed, I'd have sworn that it was directed by "just another kid" or a novice filmmaker who mapped out eye-candy shots simply because he could. The constant zooms, pans, tilts, and other camera…
