OK action movie but there is some confusion concerning the place of action.


"So yes, this movie is well worth the watch.

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

Story was highly predictable.

Surely, the plot/story could have been better, but it's far from boring, and one does get to care for the characters.

This movie was a waste of my time.

If you can generally survive predictable dialogue and somewhat of a predictable story line and poor acting and highly predictable characters...

Straightforward, Entertaining, B-Movie Action Film that Soars on the Charisma of its Leading Man .

You cannot simply vote this high, even if you are a MJW fan, for the most part he does"OK" but its a boring convoluted plot line, that adds nothing to the actual development of the film.

And the benefit of a slow start is that it builds.

But the combination of the storyline, the action, the acting, and the cast, then the end result really worked out as an entertaining action movie with that late 1980's feel that action movies had back then.

Cookie cutter and boring .

His character is strong and entertaining to watch.

OK action movie but there is some confusion .

An entertaining film, with impressive Martial arts action, Michael Jai White's skills are just dazzling!

It's worth watching if you have absolutely nothing else to watch or do.

And it turned out that this action flick was actually rather entertaining.

The story (which is to a large degree very predictable) is kind of padded out, and takes forever to get going (over a third of the movie goes by before White's character really starts to get down to business.

Otherwise an entertaining movie, recommended.

The only parts that are enjoyable are some of the fight sequences.

Very cliché also.

I sure was in for a surprise; this movie is anything but cliché -- it was a genuine rockbuster of a film that blew me away.

i can guarantee one thing that you won't get bored out of this movie because whenever you feel like it's gonna get a little boring; that's where an action/fight scene pops in.

So when I first saw the trailer for this movie I thought it was going to be your typical predictable Hollywood action flick.

The interesting, bright and colorful location makes the film a bit more unique and compelling, with a plot integrated into the seedy underbelly of the area.

Entertaining And Entirely Worth Watching .

You will probably find "Falcon Rising" to be entertaining the more that you are in an undemanding mood when you sit down to watch it.

The entire thing is dragged down and there isn't enough action sequences to overcome the stark reality of how mediocre the actual story is.

But don't get me wrong, because i really like the action and the main story was very entertaining, and Michael Jai White is an excellent tough type actor.

Entertaining .

Falcon Rising is an entertaining, thrilling and unsentimental action movie where you will be seeing good old-fashioned fight choreography done brilliantly.

All the action scenes are fun and pretty exciting thanks to some great choreography.

While this movie started off slowly, the second half was very entertaining and worth it.

Its too slow, with unnecessary, pondering plot lines.

"Falcon Rising" is an enjoyable action film with outstanding fight choreography and reasonably complex characters.

But After watching Blood and Bone (A very good and engaging action thriller), and more recently Falcon Rises, I must admit that there was not a single time during the movie where I would not wish Michael Jai White would have performed the role.

"Falcon Rising" is an entertaining film with a thrilling physical performance from its star, Michael Jai White.

The whole premise is very cliché and just not handled that well.

Very, very predictable.
