Dumb fun, though not quite heavy on action like you may believe

Falcon Rising is the kind of movie that is easy to sell with an action packed trailer.

However, it has less action then what you may believe there is. That's not to say it's not an action movie, but the action scenes are quite few and far between.

The movie starts with our hero drinking and playing Russian roulette. If he really wants to kill himself, he should have loaded his gun with all the bullets, but that's besides the point.

The point is that he has a sister who cares about him. After a talking scene at the restaurant, they part ways.

Suddenly, the movie is set up in Brazil-Rio de Janeiro, where most of the plot happens. His sister is a cop and she gets brutally attacked. Our hero discovers it and he goes to Brazil to investigate.

During the first half of the movie, there were only 2 fight scenes ( one in the first five minutes and the other about halfway ). The second half gets better and it focus more on the action, which is what we came to see.

When the action happens, it's cool. No cuts, no shaking cam, no implied deaths. It's everything clear and well filmed.

The last fight is a little different because it's our hero against 3 guys at the same time.

It sets up a sequel, if they want to make one. The action scenes and Michael Jay White are a must see.

Decent.

I like Michael Jae White. I really do. It's just a shame that he doesn't necessarily have the best movies. Blood And Bone and Black Dynamite are probably two of his best movies. So is Falcon Rising up there? No, not exactly. For the most part, it's a pretty decent movie to watch, especially if you're a MJW fan. Think too hard and you'll start noticing flaws and soon you'll picking apart the film. The film is cheesy, but thankfully it knows that is. The humor can be off at times and the dramatic tones can come off as soap opera like. The dialogue can be a little so-so at times and the action sequences are, for most part, watchable. Even if the sound effects are a bit odd. The acting is okay at times and the pacing can be a bit of a drag, the characters can be clichéd and cartoony at times but for the most part you know their role in the film. All in all, it's not Jae's best movie, but it's something we can gnaw on as we wait for the highly anticipated Skin Trade coming next year.

6/10

Worth a watch

Having seen "Blood and Bone" I was interested to see MJW's latest outing, and with some minor reservations this movie is worth a look if the genre interests you. Its well shot, reasonable well acted throughout, with a good peppering of action sequences culminating in the standard "final battle". The fight scenes are well done, focusing on MJW's obvious skills without special effects or camera trickery. The plot moves along nicely, true its a little formulaic and maybe predicable, but name an action/revenge movie that is not....its more about the journey than the destination....hands up who wasn't sure if Liam Neeson would find his daughter in "Taken". The thing that impresses me the most is how good it it is considering the budget...$4.5 million, compare that to "The Expendables" $262 million...and it doesn't look cheap...think more "Transporter" than "Bourne".... ...now there's a thought MJW v Jason Stratham..
