DVD REVIEW: THE FAN
Shock Entertainment, December 2017
Directed by Tony Scott
Starring Robert De Niro, Wesley Snipes, Ellen Barkin
Reviewed by Shane Pinnegar
6/10

This 1996 film sadly suffers from a disappointing case of being less than the sum of its impressive parts.

Following De Niro’s struggling knife salesman Gil Renard as he obsesses about superstar baseballer Bobby Rayburn, played by Wesley Snipes, The Fan contained all the potential for another great De Niro goes psycho flick, but a combination of flaccid writing and average direction from Tony Scott.

De Niro and Snipes, along with the rest of the cast, do their best, but The Fan never really gels: it’s predictable, for starters – you can guess what’s coming next pretty much the whole way through.
