Usually remakes of classic movies fall short of the mark but this one is different. This movie shows superb acting and the story line is good. It it a great remake and a wonderful vehicle for Christopher Reeve. Hitchcock would be proud!!

"In my search to find a copy of the original, I came across some information which stated that the original is being remastered and should be available for release end of 1999 or beginning of 2000.....I have it on my Christmas list!"

"Why is it so hard to find? Older movies than this one are abailable! And this new version is not good. And I am NOT tring to insult Reeve though, i think he is a wonderful actor but no one will get a suspense/mistery picture as Hitchcock. He is, after almost 20 years of his death, The Master of Suspense. And no one will get such a frightful feeling as James Stewart, and no one to get the charm of Grace Kelly, not even Daryl. This is what makes the ORIGINAL Rear Window as unique as it is today, and as it was in 1954."
Remake of a Clasic

"While I'm not one to truly enjoy a remake, Christopher Reeve's version of "Rear Window" is very good. This movie was made three years after his horse ridding accident, so the wheelchair, respirator and rehabilitation is real. Reeve plays an architect who is involved in a head-on collision that has left him paralyzed. When he comes back to work, he has his own room in the floor above where he works and a new view to go with it. As in the original, he's got too much time on his hands and starts to get nosy with the people in the building next door. I'll leave the rest for those who haven't seen the movie yet.
I really enjoyed Reeve's acting in this movie. Darryl Hannah plays the Grace Kelly role, and that's the only reason I gave it four stars. Hannah is no Grace Kelly, and her performance is kind of lame. But the plot and the story line is good and for the most part, so is the acting."
