Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"For a while, the cast is appealing enough, and the design is House Beautiful enough, to camouflage the Fatal flaws that turn the second half into an overblown, predictable snicker-fest."
‑ Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today
"Violent creepy-boyfriend thriller without helpful takeaways."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media
"Wahlberg's creep-tastic slow-burn makes this predictable potboiler a little bit scary and a lot more entertaining."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"One of the all-time goofiest movies, avoiding a tough inspection of troubling emotional speeds and stunted communication to sneeze out a confused, half-realized story of obsession."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"Though cheesy and illogical, this thriller has charming performances, and an exciting climax."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Film Threat
"The only thing scary about this film is watching Mark Wahlberg's career as an actor begin to dissipate."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"A throwback to the psycho-sexual thrillers of the 1980s, Fear is sort of a male version of Fatal Attraction"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Corny but cool...Wahlberg has presence"
‑ Clint Morris, Film Threat
