Fear is an edgy thriller that seems to borrow similar plot elements from 1993's 'The Crush'. Reese Witherspoon is great and full of believability in her role, Alyssa Milano was a great delight to watch also.
Mark Wahlberg on the other hand, I have nothing to say about him except the fact he just comes across as your typical onscreen pretty-boy..

This movie is based a narcissist with psychopathic tendencies who obessesively is love bombing, hovering, gaslighting, and projecting on his victim Reese, I would know because I dated one and he pulled all these moves on my little naive self. so this is basically a true story for me. Started out charming, turned into a crazy selfish psycho. He had the same demeanor like marky charming and crazy parts. Was jealous of my best guy friend, stalking, tried to get with my friend And I ended up getting hurt emotionally and physically. Only part that isn't similar is that he is still alive terrorizing other innocent women. As cheesy the movie, Narcissistic personalities exists and a lot of women are terrorized. Sigh..

Not great but watchable for Mark Wahlberg's wicked performance.

well that escalated quickly! also why was everyone in the family just sitting on the floor during that last scene?! even though dad did what needed to be done, he surely could've used some help, or distractions at the very least. obviously Reece's character was kind of stupid, but who can blame her when she's got Mark chasing her... holy crap; i think he's attractive now, but 20 years ago?? whoofta! teenage (any age, really) crush much? what an attractive specimen. even with that awful hair cut and those awful pants.

A good thriller. Some drama and good acting. Not much of a plot.

Wahlberg is good, other than that, it's all generic.

This very early piece introduces us to Reese Witherspoon, and shows us that Mark Wahlberg has presence on the screen, but as an actual thriller...it doesn't hold much weight.

Packed with terror and suspense, Fear is an impressive and eerie suspense thriller leaving me at the edge of my seat the whole time

Fear tried to take this simplest of concepts and turn it in to a teen attraction, and failed for the most part. Yes the cast is appealing to teenagers who watch movies for nothing more than seeing Reese Witherspoon have an orgasm on a ferris wheel, but others will pick up on the countless cliches that exist and the most predictable ending out there. Mildly amusing, but never rewarding.

Mark Wahlberg's performance is on par, but the rest of the movie is sort of silly.

Good movie! Great performance from Mark Wahlberg and Reese Witherspoon! Not one of my favorites particularly but I like it pretty well.

This movie did not age well, but it is an entertaining enough story.

A movie where the entire message is ""Hey look, I'm Mark Wahlberg. What's up?"

An average film that really was Wahlbergs first big picture before his Boogie Nights breakthrough. He plays a young man who has a violent past and definite questions about his motives. He falls for one of the rich goody girls, who overall is young, nice, sweet and naive. Her dad realizes something is wrong with the guy and doesn't approve instantly. The film chronicles his behavior as it ascends lower and lower and more dark secrets are found out...and we realize the dude is a bad human being that could even threaten their well being. Despite this she still wants to date him until it's too late and he turns on her and her family.

it's cheesy and predictable however and we know where it's going from the start.
the acting isn't good enough, neither is the script to ultimately save it's flaws.

Fear isn't entirely original and has some blatant conveniences spread around it to move it's story along. Bill Petersen is sometimes unintentionally funny but overall solid, Reese Witherspoon is convincing in her debut role and Mark Wahlberg is excellent as her deceitfully charming yet psychopathic new boyfriend. I wasn't a fan of the abrupt ending and although the climax was slightly far-fetched at times, it was intense and satisfying overall. Fear was enjoyable delivering a smooth pace with good performances and as a thriller it works on most levels.
