way too long
22 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this 80 minute Making of documentary, found as an extra on the second disc of the 2-DVD Collector's edition of the remake of "Cape Fear", it goes into detail of every aspect of the film (and at this length, it damn sure better) This is definitely a case of less is more, as the featurette Making of that was on the DVD of the original "Cape Fear" is FAR better and informative at a little more than one-third of the running time of this one. At feature length it just drones on and on and on. Growing quite tiresome in parts. Recommended ONLY to die-hard fans of the remake it is about.

My Grade: D
