The Fan

The Fan ★★★

I've never even heard of this film before I watched it. After learning that it was directed by one of my all-time favorites, Tony Scott, I definitely wanted to see it though. 

As a father to young kids this movie really bothered me the way Robert De Niro's character treated his son.

His story arc felt similar to Michael Douglas’s character in ‘Falling Down’ (1993), in which his world starts to come crashing down all around him and then he takes matters into his own hands. 

After about the first hour, I was still struggling to see how the A plot and B plot fit together, if at all.

This one isn’t quite as good as one of his previous films, ‘The Last Boy Scout’, but not too bad either.
