Fear (1996) Review

Fear is not a horror film but an intense thriller film.  Fear is scary in its way and highly entertaining. This movie is about a girl who meets the nicest guy in the world, and he becomes her first love. Then she finds out that he is an ex-convict who sleeps with the girl’s best friend, and he will kill anyone to get to her. The beginning of this movie plays out like a typical romance/drama until when details start to unravel the "nice guy" facade. Mark WahlbergReese Witherspoon, and Alyssa Milano gave incredible performances where we feel emotions with each act. I liked this movie a lot.
