Movie Info

When Max Klein (Jeff Bridges) survives a plane crash that kills many others, his last-minute epiphanies bring him a sense of invulnerability, leading to radical behavior. Instead of contacting his wife (Isabella Rossellini) after the crash, he sets off on a trip to see his old girlfriend, eats foods he was allergic to previously, and is strangely unafraid to fly again. Can a psychologist (John Turturro) and a fellow guilt-ridden survivor (Rosie Perez) help bring him down to earth?

Audience Reviews for Fearless

    If there is a reason this film is so tragically overlooked, its probably due to the fact that its narrative continually defies genre expectations. The only sequence I can think of that may be standard to this type of drama is the "toolbox" scene . . . and even that doesn't turn out the way you'd expect. Its emotionally rewarding in a way that took me by surprise and this is probably one of Jeff Bridges' greatest performances (which is saying something).

    Really this movie is at 86%? I had to watch it in psych class the other day, and I thought it was prettyyy boring. I also wasn't really paying attention either. Movies like this don't interest me.

    even though this movie is depressing and traumatic me and my ma were laughing at parts of this movie, the ending was pretty intense and i almost rated the movie 2 and a half because of the way it was heading but the last 20 seconds of the movie saved it

    <i>"Some people are afraid of nothing."</i> A man's personality is dramatically changed after surviving a major airline crash. <center><font size=+2 face="Century Schoolbook"><b><u>REVIEW</u></b></font></center> Powerful and inspirational depiction of the human spirit's quest for closure. After surviving a terrible airplane crash, Max Klein (Bridges in arguably the performance of his career) finds himself in a state of near nirvana as he assumes he's untouchable in the realm of death, until he learns of another survivor (Rosie Perez in her Oscar-nominated poignant role), nearly catatonic due to the death of her infant in the aftermath. Ethereal and genuinely moving with some unexpecting moments of humor and unabashed honesty. Features one of the more realistic airplane crashes in film history and a hypnotic score. Excellent direction by Peter Weir and screenplay adaptation by Rafael Yglesias based on his novel. Memorable scene: Car test with U2 on the soundtrack. Hypnotic.
