OK action movie but there is some confusion

OK action movie but there is some confusion concerning the place of action. You can clearly see the typical views of Rio DE Janeiro and not a word about Sao Paolo. Maybe it is a small detail to most viewers - thou I doubt it, but right is right. It happens in Rio and not in Sao Paolo, OK? Otherwise an entertaining movie, recommended. After that we can go on to say few words about the movie itself. It seemed a little like Jason Statham plot - remember Jason's "Homefront?" The Brazilian police couple for ex. was a little too obvious to me, but not surprising at all. The action is quite interesting as it takes us beyond the Favela and gets us to take an additional quick look into the world of trafficking. All in all really good acting on most characters and nicely photographed too, Thomas K.

Solid action movie with the best, MJW

7.5/10

I agree with A_Different_Drummer's review for this movie and his Blood and Bone review. MJW is one of the best action stars out there and is still under-utilized. While this movie started off slowly, the second half was very entertaining and worth it. Predictable story but who cares, it's all about the style for this movie.

MJW needs more roles, I will watch anything with him in it. If you haven't seen Blood and Bone or Black Dynamite yet, go ahead and do yourself the favor.

Though this one isn't his strongest movie it beats the usual 6's and 7's on IMDb that are churned out by Popllywood.

Dumb fun, though not quite heavy on action like you may believe

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

However, it has less action then what you may believe there is. That's not to say it's not an action movie, but the action scenes are quite few and far between.

The movie starts with our hero drinking and playing Russian roulette. If he really wants to kill himself, he should have loaded his gun with all the bullets, but that's besides the point.

The point is that he has a sister who cares about him. After a talking scene at the restaurant, they part ways.

Suddenly, the movie is set up in Brazil-Rio de Janeiro, where most of the plot happens. His sister is a cop and she gets brutally attacked. Our hero discovers it and he goes to Brazil to investigate.

During the first half of the movie, there were only 2 fight scenes ( one in the first five minutes and the other about halfway ). The second half gets better and it focus more on the action, which is what we came to see.

When the action happens, it's cool. No cuts, no shaking cam, no implied deaths. It's everything clear and well filmed.

The last fight is a little different because it's our hero against 3 guys at the same time.

It sets up a sequel, if they want to make one. The action scenes and Michael Jay White are a must see.
