Audience Reviews for Falcon Song
A tasteful example of artistic restraint and classic revival filmmaking. I like this flick because it plays like a rarity in today's barrage of cinematic belligerency. It sits between the "lull you to sleep" depressive indies and grand displays of major studio might that are so prevalent today. It's an authentic homage to a past era in film minus the fluff of "remember when" irony. While its certainly not the most moving story, it does create a sense of escapism. The look, dialogue, and acting style definitely nails the old school. Film buffs will appreciate this aspect, while others just seeking beautiful landscapes, horses, ranch life, and western Americana will be appeased.
I was lucky enough to see this film in the theater. I thought it was really fun and watching it felt like I had traveled back in time to 1986. Sadly movies aren't made like this any more, but Falcon Song proves that it is possible. You can just feel the passion behind this movie. The retro style was handled properly and didn't rely on endless pop culture references, college humor, and sarcasm like so many films do that cash in on the "80s" thing. The locations are great and it was refreshing to see that a light hearted film like this can do so well. The story is relatively basic; a guy cruises into a quirky, small town and shakes things up. There are a good amount of kittens in this film, which is pretty high up on my list. Gabriel Sunday's acting is excellent and it was really fun to see that Martin Kove from the original Karate Kid movies can still be part of a respectable film. The Directing is solid and the cinematography is outstanding. All in all, Falcon Song is worth checking out and possibly adding to your collection of 80s movies!
