Fearless Reviews

  • Jul 02, 2019

    An often overlooked film from the 1990s, and one viewing is enough to understand why. This drama has some positives in it to help garner its critical acclaim. The directing was great, the script was solid, and the messages and themes about recovery are really fascinating. But it requires deep analysis of those themes to truly understand it, and clearly not many people can. As the films incredibly boring story and failure to capture the devastating reality of survivors guilt prevent it from being recognized as a memorable motion picture.

    Thought provoking, even if I don't agree with their motivations and characters.

    A plane crash survivor no longer fears death, but has no one to relate his new revelation to other than another plane crash survivor. Pros: - Good performance by Rosie Perez. Cons: - Slow-paced at times. - The wife is unlikable. - You can't decide you're not allergic. Bottom Line: Fear keeps us from being alive.

    Great film for its day. Best film on PTSD ever made. Jeff Bridges performance is one of the all-time best ever. It took huge balls to make this movie because of the controversial subject matter.

    I really wanted to like this movie. It has so many great actors & an interesting idea behind it. Just couldn't get into it.

    When Max Klein (Bridges) survives a plane crash that kills many others, his last-minute epiphany brings him a sense of invulnerability, leading to radical behaviour. Can a psychologist (Turturro) and a fellow guilt-ridden survivor (Perez) help bring him down to earth? This is a film that deserves to be seen at least once.

    Fearless can certainly lack a progressive plot, but the character study is alone worth the watch and its psychological theory is surely something to take note of.

    85% Saw this on 19/10/16 peter Weir's film is good on parts wherein it is mostly gripping for most of its running time while it remains flat so as to abide by the rules of morality. Jeff Bridges and the rest of the cast is good in this film.

    It may be too melodramatic at times but it works 100% well to create emotions it tries to elicit from the audience.
