Critic Reviews for Rear Window
A good remake with Reeve proving you don't need to be able to walk to command the screen.
Seemed like a good idea at the time...
Audience Reviews for Rear Window
It is an OK thriller (should not even be attempted comparison with the Hitchcock one) notable mostly for Reeve's performance.
While no where near as good as the original I still like the concept and the execution was well done. All involved did a great job and really tried to stay true to the mood of the Hitchcock classic.
Ok, I made a small error here, in that I requested this film expecting Hitchcock's original and hadn't realised a remake had been made. You can see the Hitchcock marks all over this film and makes for a great murder mystery, although I guess the elephant in the room here is that Christopher Reeve was able to play this role, having been paralyzed during his well publicised accident. Being a little Neurologically challlenged myself, I though this showed great character in Reeve, but I'm sure the critics will have made comments to the contrary. A film that made pretty good viewing in a 'slightly better than diagnosis murder' type of way.
