Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw
Primal Fear (1996)
Richard Gere, Edward Norton, a bunch of other noobs
Plot Summary: Richard Gere is a hot shot defense attorney. Ed Norton, a 19 year old altar boy, is arrested and tried for the murder of a Priest. Richard Gere must save Ed Norton from the electric chair, but what makes this so interesting is that all the evidence points to cute, innocent eyes, stuttering nitwit Aaron (Norton), but Richad Gere is convinced he didn't do it. Perhaps...a third person did it?
The REAL Review: All I can say is...WOW.... If you haven't seen this movie yet, seriously...get off your ass, go to blockbuster, and rent it. It's in the drama section near the P's. It's called Primal Fear. One of the best movies I've ever seen. Yes, it was better than Zodiac (which ever since finding out, is a work of fiction, has risen even higher on my list of favorite movies). Primal Fear sits at number three on the list, third only to Pee Wee's Big Adventure and Fight Club.
Sure...Richard Gere (who supposily gave the best performance of his career) was pretty good. But wow...Ed Norton TOTALLY owned this movie. I'm not kidding when I say that Norton's portrayal of his character was better than Heath Ledger's Joker.
It really was an all around excellent movie. The story was written well enough for you to enjoy, but seriously...Ed Norton made this movie the masterpiece it is.
For the first time... 10/10.
Final Verdict: See this movie.
