    My terror for De Niro's Max Cady was replaced by too much attention being drawn to his ridiculous accent. Funny how your view of a film you've seen before can change. Definitely less scary than previous watches.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    An interestingly flawed thriller which could have been terrific if it hadn't been for the superfast pacing. Despite its two-hour length 'Cape Fear' felt more like a summary of film at times, missing quite a few vital beats and pauses. A lot of scenes seemed to have been deliberately edited to be as short as possible (notice how there's bearly any silence during the dialogues); maybe this was Scorsese's way of putting you on edge and of reflecting Max Cady's…

    Martin Scorsese's horror like remake of classic cape fear titled once again cape fear is better than the original as remakes go I think the original cape fear is very good but the remake is a much darker and overall better movie there's three directors that I can trust when remaking a film john carpenter, martin Scorsese and Quentin tarantino who would just pump it up with blood and gore. Robert de niro gives probably his best performance which is…

    Comme c'est du Scorsece, evidement c'est bien foutu et on y retrouve une place importante de la religion.

    Très bien filmé (plans magnifique, les nuages au dessus de la maison, ...) et assez violent. Réaliste autant que le genre puisse l'être mais intelligement écrit (on ne sait pas si Caddy est coupable, l'avocat a contourné la loi mais ne veut pas le faire pour sa protection, Caddy n'est pas stupide, ...) on voit le vernis éclater sous la vérité (couple, situation, ...).

    Le casting fonctionne : le duel Nick Nolte et Robert De Niro (en Max Caddy/diable invicible et ivre de vengeance) fonctionne bien.

    Practically a Brian de Palma movie, and an awful lot of fun. The De Niro - Juliette Lewis scene is remarkable, but just about everything else is self-aware and baroque enough to keep your eyes glued to the screen.

    Strange casting, performances, editing and plot changes mar and misrepresent the original.

    I just loved the way Scorsese captured that classic film feeling with his directing. DeNiro is captivating on screen, even when he doesn't say anything at all. While it isn't your typical Scorsese greatness, Cape Fear still is a fantastic film.

    Great movie and Bobby D is a tour de force. I couldn't help myself from laughing at some of the set-ups though. Even the stilted crash zooms became funny after a while. All part of the enjoyment.
    Was I the only one rooting for Cady?
