Scorsese's remake (also hommage in some ways) is inferior to the original 1962 version, though the acting is good, and both Robert De Niro and Juliette Lewis garnered Oscar nominations.

Martin Scorsese's loose remake of J. Lee Thompson's 1962 thriller is an exercise in audience manipulation, with every frame designed to stagger the senses.

Scorsese cria com riqueza de detalhes um neo noir que, com um estilo marcado, se diferencia de boa parte de sua obra, demonstrando simultaneamente sua versatilidade e seu conhecimento sobre a história do Cinema.

Stay away if you're squeamish but, if you do, you'll miss an essential work by one of our masters, as well as two of the year's most accomplished performances, those of Mr. De Niro and Ms. Lewis.

The opening title sequences are excellent, among the best I've ever seen. The cinematography is top notch. Camera movement and angles are innovative and captivating. There's a lot to recommend this film. It certainly rises above its weaknesses.
