The Reviews for Primal Fear (1996) 720p


One of the greatest thrillers ever brought to the screen!Reviewed bypowermandanVote: 10/10

The film stars Richard Gere and Edward Norton. Need I say more? These dudes are some of the best actors alive and are totally awesome! Edward Norton not winning an Oscar was a joke. He gave the best performance of the year. I personally think he out-did Gere. Norton was a nobody at the time, never been in any movie before, yet he was better than the legendary Richard Gere. Norton's portrayal is one of the best in history!

Gere plays a hotshot, slick lawyer named Martin Vail who loves when the spotlight shines on him and loves winning and does not care who he defends. He decides to defend an alter boy named Aaron (Norton) who is accused of brutally murdering the archbishop. As Martin dives deeper into the case, he discovers some shocking secrets about the case and his client as his chances of winning deteriorate.

Throughout the whole film, there are curve-balls, twists and questions that will leave you hungry for more.

Probably the best legal drama ever made.Reviewed byPhilip YomtovVote: 10/10

I've got to say this - this movie is a true masterpiece, and just might be the best court-room drama ever made (it's definitely one of the top 3 anyway). Everything about it is perfect - the script is perfect, and so is the directing. And don't get me started about the acting. Richard Gere nailed his part, and this was at the time he actually played in good films. But the one who steals the show here is without ANY DOUBT young Edward Norton in his first big part. His acting is nothing but brilliant and even genius and even here you can understand why he's one of the best actors to ever grace the screen. You have to see it to understand, since I do not want to spoil the story for you. The supporting cast is also very solid, and I loved seeing John Mahoney (best known for playing Martin Crane, in sitcom "Frasier") as the corrupt Maire of Chicago. "Primal Fear" will keep you on your toes all throughout it's 2 hours, and there are twists until the very end. A perfect 10 for this one, I couldn't find any flaw about it. A must-see.

PRIMAL FEAR is a good old-fashioned thriller with a modern twist. Theplot concerns an altar boy accused of killing a clergyman who molestedhim and a sleazy lawyer who sees a chance to make tabloid news bytaking the case. What he doesn't know is that his client can be just ascunning as he is.

RICHARD GERE seemed to specialize in playing these kind of low-downheels (typecasting does have its perils), and LAURA LINNEY as theprosecuting lawyer has her hands full trying to play a game ofone-upmanship against him during an intense courtroom trial.

The story ends on a chilling note, thanks largely to the clever,intense and totally convincing performance ED NORTON gives in his filmdebut. As the guy who seems to have a devious split personality drivinghim to do bad things, he's the kind of actor who makes the audience situp and take notice of his abrupt mood changes. It's no wonder he pullsthe wool over so many eyes.

Having said that, it's the climax of the film that is most stunning andbrings the story to a totally unexpected conclusion. It's the kind ofchilling twist that only the most clever scriptwriters can devise andmake seem probable--but it succeeds here.

Summing up: The kind of film you'll want to revisit once you know thewhole score. Gere, Linney and Norton deserve high praise.
