    There is no better excuse for this movie than Tony Scott wanting to play Scorsese in a disposable, cliché and uninvolved thriller by recycling much more inspired DeNiro's earlier moments. A narrative mess that doesn't decide whether to turn into a serious drama or an unsettling thriller wasting a talented cast that gets increasingly lost with so many inconsistencies.

    Lately Robert Deniro has been only acting to collect paychecks(Hey- nothing wrong with it you know) but does considering pay roles mean he doesn't even look at the script? The Fan is another one of those De-Niro duds that should have been made with lesser actors. Given De Niro's track record, it was reasonable to expect good things from him in The Fan, director Tony Scott's followup to last year's blockbuster, Crimson Tide. In fact, with De Niro playing a sociopathic baseball nut, one might be forgiven mistakenly believing that this movie had potential. Unfortunately, whatever promise the idea held was lost early in the film making process. The version of The Fan to reach movie screens is as unwatchable a thriller as has come to theaters this year. De-Niro hams it up like he's never done before and the screenplay by Phoef Sutton is abysmal. The Fan is disjointed, poorly paced, and, at times, completely incoherent. While Sutton has to bear some of the blame, the lion's share goes to Tony Scott, who has badly mishandled every aspect of this film. The director appears to have backslided into his unpromising Beverly Hills Cop II phase.

    One of the best cheeseball baseball thrillers of all time... And an all-star cast, despite Wesley Snipes...

    It is a very underrated movie. It really has a touching story and a great performance by De Niro. A really worthy movie.

    Despite some narrative flaws, The Fan is an intriguing thriller.

    I remember i was very much looking forwards to seeing this movie and I was disappointed. I've re watched it and it grew on me a bit, but not much.
