Better than 1962 version
It speaks volumes for Scorsese’s reputation that a disappointing film for him is still worth a good 7 out of 10.
When it comes down to it, this 1991 version is so much more watchable and enjoyable than the first. Perhaps the new version’s morally-complex screenplay and dynamic cinematography highlight the fact that the old Cape Fear is a bit static and, well, dull.
That’s not to say the new version is perfect. The afore-mentioned cinematography, while unsettling at first (especially DeNiro virtually walking through the camera), eventually grates. Why do we need to see extreme close-ups and dramatic zooms of locks being closed?
In fact, it is bizarre that the parts of the film not set in Cape Fear are by far the best, what with the genuinely weird death of the private investigator and the ‘I don’t whether to look at him or read him’ line from Robert Mitchum. It is in the final twenty minutes that the viewer is left numbed and ultimately tired at the ‘kill the b**tard!’ histronics the film endlessly subjects us to.
Despite all this, the ultimate compliment is perhaps that The Simpsons chose to parody this version rather than the 1962 version!
One of the better thrillers of the 90’s
I have wanted to see this movie for quite some time, and I finally saw it, and I thought that it was great. I am a huge Martin Scorsese fan, and I would have to say this is one of his most true to life films, even though its not his best film. The acting is great,and so is the music. The film will send shivers through your body. This is also one of DeNiro’s most underrated performances and deserved more attention at the time of its release. Its also great to see some of the actors from the original version show up in cameo roles. If you like horror films and thrillers, you will most likely enjoy this. ***1/2 out of ****. A recommended viewing.
