Critic Reviews for Falcon Rising

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (5)

  • A throwback to 1980s action films, with strong men at the center going up alone against an unambiguously evil foe, "Falcon Rising" is an entertaining film with a thrilling physical performance from Michael Jai White.

  • "Falcon Rising" is filled with so many action-flick cliches it could serve as a text on how not to do things.

  • Y. T. Parazi's unmysterious screenplay drops cheesily clever one-liners on the way to a finish that suggests a bid for sequels, though you're more likely to find those on late-night cable than in theaters.

  • It's a straightforward vengeance tale with no other ambition than to entertain. That said, it has something.

    Sep 4, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Beyond isolated moments of dickish charm - and his climactic four-way fight involving a sword, a crucifix, and two steel pipes - Chapman just comes across like another pseudo-heroic American behaving badly abroad.

  • The structural missteps do little to diminish the immense pleasure of seeing [Michael Jai] White in motion.
