    Mi puntuación va totalmente inclinada hacia las magistrales actuaciones de ésta película, sobretodo para Robert De Niro que ya no me canso ni creo cansarme de ver sus trabajos bajo la dirección del gran Martin Scorsese, que realmente no lo sentí tanto en esta película como en otras, creo que ésta la hubiese podido dirigir otra persona y ni lo sentimos, a diferencia de lo que hubiera ocurrido con Goodfellas o Taxi Driver.

    No sentí la historia tan interesante en…

    A very solid film from all aspects. Deniro shows another reason why he is the greatest actor of our time. This is a very engaging and effective thriller!

    Swing and a miss, Marty.

    Scorsese's take on J. Lee Thompson's adaptation of The Executioners lacks all of the subtle creepiness of it's predecessor, instead opting for a strange blend of psuedo-ultraviolence and implied gore.

    There are the tacked on, extraneous scenes scattered throughout that, for the most part, neither service the overall plot or actually entertain. There's the awkward use of negative images and blundering camerawork. It's almost as though Martin…

    ”Every man has to go through hell to reach paradise.”

    We all know that Taxi Driver, Casablanca, Space Odyssey and Citizen Kane are great movies even before we watch them. There must be a reason that people appreciate them so much, so we approach them with high expectations. Of course we enjoy them when we watch them, some of them even become our favorite movies but those great experiences lack something: the element of surprise and that’s inevitable. Those movies…

    Popular culture hasn't been too kind to Scorsese's remake of Cape Fear. The menacing DeNiro has become a paycheck happy bit role for low rent romantic comedy and Nolte is now a human trainwreck, which pretty much makes both roles look miscast, and of course, The Simpsons have just ruined the film completely.

    But you put them aside and you try and work out what Scorsese is trying to achieve here and you find both what the film achieves and…

    I was watching a YouTube video of the best home invasion movies a while back when DeNiro popped up on the screen, mumbling some kind of nonsense about strychnine with a thick Southern accent (and it wasn't in Machete!), so I immediately thought to myself "this I have to see". I have never seen the original film, but I have seen this story many times before - in the Simpsons parody episode "Cape Feare" (the only difference being that Bart…

    Interessante ver como o scorcese consegue ser eclético, quem poderia afirmar que Hugo, O Lobo de Wallstreet e Cabo do Medo são do mesmo diretor. Nem tenho muito o que dizer desse clássico do suspense cheio de simbologias e ainda assim tão simples e cru. Fantástico.

    I have an extremely hard time accepting that Scorsese made this a year after Goodfellas.
