5.0 out of 5 stars Twist Dec 15 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
By far, one of Edward Norton's best. The cunning personality of his character takes Richard Gere's character to an unexpected level. Won't say too much so as to give the story away, but watch out! Don't miss a second of this brilliant story.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Your job is to sit there and look innocent." Aug. 9 2006
The archbishop of Chicago has just been brutally murdered and 19-year old altar boy Aaron Stampler (Edward Norton) is found running from the scene, covered in the man's blood. It looks like an open and shut case against the simple, stuttering boy, until dashing Martin Vail (Richard Gere), a self-proclaimed "big-deal lawyer," offers to defend him - pro bono. The prosecutor he'll be facing in the courtroom is none other than his ex-girlfriend (Laura Linney) who is still bitter about their past. With the help of a psychologist (Frances McDormand), Vail discovers a shocking secret about young Aaron that may save his life.

This is a great movie; I've seen it many times and it never gets old. Gere is perfectly cast as the handsome and confident charmer, and Edward Norton surely had one of his best roles ever as Aaron - and this was his first movie role. He is so charismatic that you will not be able to take your eyes off him. The search for the killer's motive is intense and surprising, with lots of opportunities for Gere to showcase his tremendous appeal. Highly recommended for those who like character-driven mysteries.

4.0 out of 5 stars Murder and Misdirection. June 22 2004
"Fui bailar no meu batel alem do mar cruel," sings modern fadista Dulce Pontes in this movie's dynamic title song: "I went dancing in my boat, there on the cruel sea." And it must be just like a nutshell-sized boat dancing on a stormy ocean's waves that nineteen-year-old Aaron Stampler (Edward Norton) feels after his arrest for the savage murder of Chicago's saintly Archbishop Rushman. Or does it?
Certainly it doesn't help that Aaron was caught running from the crime scene, covered in blood, and with the archbishop's ring in his pocket. Besides, who is going to believe him anyway - a stuttering, uneducated boy from rural Kentucky who was found begging by the powerful clergyman, taken in as an altar boy and made to sing in his choir - that he was present when the murder was committed but can't remember a single thing because he blacked out? Nobody; surely not the police and ADA Janet Venable (Laura Linney), assigned by D.A./Rushman friend Shaughnessy (John Mahoney) personally to try the case, with the express mandate to obtain a death penalty conviction. Nobody, that is, except Aaron's defense attorney Martin Vail (Richard Gere). Vail, of all people: the flamboyant ADA-turned-private-practitioner, the star attorney not shying away from even the shadiest client, to whom TV and magazine cover interviews are as second nature as his courtroom appearances, and who cynically quotes as his mottos a professor's maxims on his first day in law school: "From this day forward, if your mother says she loves you, get a second opinion." And: "If you want justice, go to a whorehouse. If you want to get f**ked, go to court."
"Primal Fear" was adapted from William Diehl's like-named bestselling novel and, like in many literary adaptations, its screenplay is a hit-and-miss affair.

5.0 out of 5 stars stunning performance by Edward Norton (4.5/5) Aug. 20 2007
By falcon
this is one of the best murder mystery,psychological suspense films i
have ever seen.this thing will keep you riveted and guessing right down
to the end.this movie belongs to Edward Norton,who plays an alter boy
accused of murdering a priest.this is an early film with Norton,in fact
his first feature(big screen)film.his talent is undeniable even back
then(1996).there a lot of layers to this movie and a lot going on.there
are also a lot of plot twists and some red herrings(false clues)to help
lead you to the wrong conclusions.Richard Gere is also in the film and
he does good in his role,as does Laura Linney in her role.but like i
said,this is an Edward Norton film.the success of the movie hinges on
his performance.he delivers in a big way,so the film succeeds.i don't
think you can go wrong with this film.i urge you to check it out.for me
"Primal Fear" is a 4.5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars "Aaron" " Roy" Feb. 3 2004
By murph
Edward Norton Superb, Stunning, Amazing! You will be impressed with the job he does in Primal Fear.
Aaron Stampler (Norton)is accused of murdering a Catholic archbishop, he says he is innocent that he did'nt do it that there was a thrid person in the room at the time of the butchery of the archbishop. Martin Vail (Richard Gere)take's the case and defends Aaron as a prestigious lawyer to find the so call thrid person in the murder against the prosecuter Martin's ex wife Janet Venable (Laura Linney).So watch this law bitting courtroom drama come alive and Enjoy!!!!!

By John
With each and every passing of a week it becomes evidently clearer that Hollywood's fixation on making the almighty dollar is much more important than creating quality material. Alas, when the great films do eventually come our way, they seem like masterpieces. Hence this entire "Lord of the Rings" craze.
"Primal Fear" is a quiet masterpiece. It's an Oscar contender at heart, hidden beneath a layer of assorted cliches and plot twists. Does that mean the movie is bad? Not by a long shot. It's terribly entertaining and splendidly acted, particularly by a young Edward Norton. It's a fine movie in almost every respect, although it has a few minor flaws that prevent it from becoming completely excellent.
In a nutshell: Norton is the 19-year-old who kills the archbishop of a church in Chicago; Gere is his attorney who takes on the case.
Gere doesn't care whether his clients are guilty or not. "I just do my job. It's not like I'm friends with them," he says. But he connects with his newest client in a way unlike he ever has before. "I think he's innocent," he tells one of his co-workers. "I think he's telling the truth."
The stuttering 19-year-old Kentucky boy has no clear motive for killing the archbishop. They are related only through the fact that he was a choirboy for the church and the archbishop had taken him in off the streets. But the clues start to connect and soon they find out that sweet ol' choirboy may have split personality disorder--his other side, Roy, comes into play when his normal side becomes hassed and hurt. The stutters fade away and an evil side shines through--an evil side that admits to killing the archbishop.
Of course, we all know that it doesn't stop there.
