Movie Info

One Fall, a powerful story about a man (Marcus Dean Fuller) who is both blessed and cursed with an unusual power, is set in the rustic Midwestern town of One Fall. The film tells the story of a man who miraculously survived a terrible fall from a spectacular 200 foot-high precipice that is the area's major attraction. After recovering, he abruptly abandoned friends and family and disappeared without explanation. The secret he couldn't share with them was that, while recovering, he had suddenly developed the power to heal others. Tired of running away, he returns home after a long absence and decides to use his gift - but not altruistically. If people pay him, he will cure them. Though he appears to be doing the right thing, he is doing it for all the wrong reasons, and risks driving away anyone who ever loved or trusted him. As his moral crisis peaks, he must figure out why he survived his fall, and what he is really meant to do with his life. -- (C) Paladin

Starts out with an intriguing premise but grows muddier as it grows more mystical.

Ends up reducing its hero's struggle (and bad attitude) to a single past trauma and its resultant daddy issues.

Time Out
Top Critic

The cast is engaging, and there are a few light-chuckle moments, but the script needed another rewrite, and the film itself needed to be guided by a thornier sensibility than Fuller's.

Despite its grander ambitions, the film ultimately feels minor and superficial.

Audience Reviews for One Fall

A great Good Samaritan & Superhero Movie!!! I grew up reading comic books. It's great to see them embraced in the film industry--all types from big budget stuff like the dark knight trilogies to smaller, independent and heart-felt fare, like this one! I look forward to other ventures by Marcus Dean Fuller.

I just watched One Fall and loved it. The thought that in order to be healed and to have an effect on others you must let go of it all... is simple and refreshing. Watch this movie!
