    Some people like this movie. For me... luke warm. It's very standard american cinema in terms of directing and scene structuring. Conceptually... it's not that moving. Straw Dogs? Blade Runner? That's a punch in the stomach. This? Sunday afternoon version of the feeling.

    An interesting concept that is plagued by corny dialogue and its own vanity.

    One star for the line, "I've had a really rare morning." The rest is an abject failure, frothing with ignorant spittle.

    ¿Qué hacer cuando toda tu vida se ha ido por el sumidero, cuanto todas las promesas resultaron ser falsas e incluso aquello que creías verdad ha resultado ser un engaño tan barato como increíble? William 'D-Fens' Foster, un Michael Douglas soberbio en un peligroso equilibrio entre locura y lucidez —haciendo, para ello, que sean indistinguibles: su extrema lucidez, con lo que podemos coincidir con él, es lo que le aproxima hacia las formas más demenciales de ver el mundo—, decide…

    La obra maestra de Schumacher, de tener éste una. Puede que haya envejecido un poquitín, pero el relato es lo bastante atemporal como para mantenerse muy fresca y, lo que es peor, lo que debería remover muchas conciencias bienpensantes: vigente.

    Sirve también para recordarle a mucha gente el gran actor que es Michael Douglas. A mí al menos siempre me ha parecido uno de los mejores, asertivo pero sobrio, con mucho talento para la contención y los registros sutiles y sin por ello dejar de petarlo fuerte.

    Crítica a diferentes sectores de la sociedad (pocos se libran) a través de la ultraviolencia del asocial personaje de Michael Douglas.

    La trama empieza en el mismo punto y avanza de dos formas diferentes hasta volver a cruzarse por cosas del destino.
    Una de las vías, la de D-Fens, es mucho más divertida y crítica. Grita muchas verdades con toques de humor, mala leche y venganza.
    La otra vía es el policía (interpretado por Robert Duvall) que sigue las pistas que deja D-Fens mientras él va replanteándose su futuro. Una vía mucho más tranquila y sosa aunque necesaria para concluir la historia.

    Watching with a large crowd at a film festival, this movie felt both electric in it's boldness (in an age of safe studio choices) and very dated of course. They don't make them like these anymore! Schumacher (who fondled my leg in a panel earlier that day) was never more relevant than with FALLING DOWN.
