My reminiscence. I always thought that for such a lovely river the name is mystifying: "Cape Fear". When the only thing to fear on those enchanted summer nights was that the magic would end and real life would come crashing in.

Very Solid Film
There are so many positive things to say about this film I don't know where to begin. Juliette Lewis was incredible, De Niro was just as fantastic as always, Nick Nolte was great, and Scorsese did one of his best direction jobs ever. Scorsese took the original film which was shot in a black and white, dead-pan style, and did just the opposite--great camera angles, fantastic effects, and beautiful colors. He is truly a master of film. This film solved some of the problems that the first one had, but kept the suspense and action. The movie does have graphic violence, but it is not overdone--only enough to show the true mental state of Max Cady (De Niro). Overall this film is a must see, and should especially not be missed for De Niro and Scorsese fans.
