The Last Fall Reviews
That this story would tackle the very real issue of the myth surrounding professional athletes' financial status is what really makes The Last Fall worth at least one watch. Few, if any, sports based dramas tackle the myth about how professional athletes live. Because of this, there is an overwhelming myth about professional athletes' financial status and how they live; this despite a new special from ESPN Films' 30 for 30 series. So it's nice to see a movie (even a direct to DVD movie) tackle the subject and show that things aren't always parties and planes for professional athletes.
The Last Fall's depiction of life post professional sports makes the story stand out among sports based dramas. It's thanks to the story?s script that this plot works. The movie itself runs just over an hour and a half. In that time, the story is simple enough to follow that if a person had to step out for any reason, one could let the movie keep running, come back, and still know what's going on. To that extent, this is a good thing believe it or not. It means that this movie will easily allow viewers to be pulled in and suspend their disbelief without worrying about becoming too invested in it to the point that they worry about missing anything. In simplest terms, the movie's overall success with its intended audiences can be summed up in one word: Balance. The script balances all of its elements in a short period of time so well that while it may not be a major motion picture, it's a story that any football fan will want to watch at least once.
