    "I am not a vigilante. I am just trying to get home to my little girl's birthday party and if everyone will just stay out of my way, nobody will get hurt."- Bill Foster

    Joel Schumacher is a strange director. Over a span of just four year he made two terrible films and two damn good ones (The Client was also made in that span, but I haven't see it). Falling Down is one of the damn good ones. The…

    Michael Douglas has had enough of people and society and now he just wants to go home. He also has guns and things to say. It's great.

    "Yeah, and now you're gonna die wearing that stupid little hat, how does it feel?"

    It's never quite clear whether we were meant to loathe or cheer for our short-tempered protagonist, but he weaves an interesting story for us regardless of how we judge his actions.

    This film saddens, depresses and frightens me more than other exploitative and or horror movies. Sure, the movie challenges your ability to relate the protagonist but it has too pessimistic of a world view for my tastes.

    Not only is this still a surprisingly fresh and relevant satire considering it is more than 20 years old, it was also directed by Joel Schumacher?!?! Seriously dude, what changed in the time between this and the Batman movies?

    An almost perfect film!
    'Falling Down' is the gripping story of what everyday people wish they had the balls to do. Following Ben Foster as he stands up for his consumer rights, orders breakfast after breakfast, walks over private golfing territory and marks his name over dangerous gangs just to reach his daughter. The script is solid, the performance is amazing the cinematography is great and the result is a near perfect film. The film loses it's self when involved with the detectives, but makes up for it in the tension filled scenes.

    Falling Down is a film I've wanted to see for a VERY long time. Mainly because Dirty Harry is one of my all time favorite films, and when typing in 'Movies like Dirty Harry' on Google, this is one of the many that would be recommended to me. I've only JUST managed to get my hands on it though!... Thoughts? Mixed! Very mixed. Mainly because it's a film made up of iconic and extremely well done and entertaining scenes, followed…

    Joel Schumacher shows us what happens when you incarnate everyones worst frustrations of everyday life into a living, breathing, sweating man. The first 2/3's of this film were brilliant. Tense, comical, and gripping, the actions and irritations of Michael Douglas' hero/anti hero character are fascinating. On his way home to visit his daughter on her birthday at his ex-wife's home, stuck in traffic, fed up, he snaps. He abandons his car and goes on a rampage targeting social bad behavior.…

    La decadencia de la vida en la ciudad, el retrato del neocapitalismo aplastando al hombre común, de un sistema que nos falla, de un sociopata en piel de oficinista, de un desempleado que aplastado por crisis tras crisis ya no sabe cómo desahogarse sin explotar y hacer daño a quienes le rodean. Un hombre sin justificativos, un policía a punto de retirarse. Un buen actor en un buen papel, un director regular con un buen guión. Eso es Falling Down.

    A movie than has numerous unintentionally humorous scenes.
    (Still a great movie though)
