Falcon Rising is an 80's style action movie with modern production esthetics and breath taking fight choreography. Michael Jai White stars as a self destructive ex-military operative whose only reason to live is to find those responsible for the viscious assault on his sister. White is a living CGI reel, performing some of the most eye popping stunts imaginable. You don't have to worry about shaky cams or other cinematic tricks to hide the actor's flaws. Lateef Crowder leads the supporting cast of experts who don't don't need it. The gorgeous Laila Ali and veteran actor Neal McDonough round things out. If you liked Blood and Bone this movie will certainly scratch your martial arts movie itch.

Falcon Rising starring Michael Jai White was very well done. It never goes over the top with special effects and stays rooted on the development of the main character's (Falcon's) presence and story. This aspect added tons of depth and pushes the movie beyond merely being just a simple action title. Michael Jai White knows a vast array of Martial Arts disciplines and he translates them to the movie screen with much finesse and flair. Performing his own stunts makes the fight scenes extremely fluid and convincing. This was most important during the multi-adversary fights. The plot never falls dull and it's implemented so well that you're only wishing they would delve even deeper. Near the end of the movie I began to realize that they took this direction in story to prop Falcon Rising up as a series of movies. I look forward to the following movies in this series. Definitely check this movie out. Another hit by MJW!

I love Michael J. Great movie. I thought Laila would have had a fight seen, but I guess you can't have everything. Once again, Michael J. put it down. I can't wait to see what's next.

Another movie featuring a genuine and great martial artist, but once again, Micheal Jai White is surrounded by mediocre production which continues to overshadow his skills. The movie wasn't bad, but wasn't great either. I found myself drifting off during the movie and I only watched it in its entirety out of sheer devotion to my man White. Falcon Rising had a good story and a great martial artist, but just didn't deliver. Too bad.

Had a made-for-TV feel, sometimes, but still pretty action-packed. The Producers probably had in mind a TV series: the ending was more like what you'd expect for TV, as opposed to a movie sequel. All that being said - it 's a movie with Michael Jai White as the lead!. As usual, he serves up unique (yet authentic) moves, so the action is on point.

****CONTAINS GENERIC PLOT SPOILERS****

Johnny Chapman (Michael Jai White) is a PTSD vet who is off his meds. He is suicidal, but works out just in case. He lives in NYC and is visited by his sister Cindy (Laila Ali) who pops in from Brazil so they can go to dinner together, and then back she goes.

Cindy is a volunteer worker who gets bludgeoned in Brazil. Chapman (aka Falcon) now has a reason to live as he goes after the bad guys in Rio, a city that has great stock footage scenery, but has most of the action take place in a small section of the slums. In spite of that, it was a welcomed change from the Mideast and Bulgaria. At this point the film goes super formula as we add elements of Patrick Swayze, Charles Bronson, child prostitution ring (hasn't been done enough yet) crooked cops, and yes the Yakuza who sneak up on armed people, brandishing a sword and while yelling. Won't tell you how that works out.

My biggest shock was that Neal McDonough as an actual good guy and not the Chechen "Albino Assassin." How did they miss that? Maybe in the next one as this appears to be the first in a series of films...depending on profits. Good formula writing for those who like the vigilante thing.

Parental Guidance: No sex or nudity. No F-bombs that I recall. Some adult themes and language (punta) most of which was in Portuguese.

This is a guilty pleasure movie. Michael Jai White is kind of like another JCVD and this series is going to be his thing. When the movie started with MJW drinking a shot with bullets in it and then playing Russian Roulette with himself, I knew this was going to be some crazy stuff. High quality? Nope, but entertaining all the same. MJW is a former soldier who has seen All The Bad Things and now he has bad PTSD. His sister who is a volunteer in Brazil's worst neighborhood, The Flavela, is attacked. MJW heads to Brazil to see who's done it and get justice. From there, it's a somewhat violent romp through Brazil with Capoiera, guns, bad guys, good guys, and corruption.

MJW is a jacked up and entertaining actor. He plays tortured really well and dramatically. I'm completely looking forward to the next installment in this movie. Really, this first film was a setup for the series. Sort of a "how Falcon got into this shadowy government gig". So, watch it if you're an MJW fan and think you'll be into the series. It's worth 98 or 100 minutes or whatever.

2014R:
Michael Jai White rocked his moves as usual, but overall the flick was just so ... so ...

Not much in the way of meaningful dialog, plot, etc. which killed the entertainment value. There's no build-up to the fight scenes. After a while we just find ourselves waiting for the next (almost predictable) fight.

If you're gonna do well choreographed yet entertaining fight scenes throughout the film you gotta build up to them. Otherwise, it comes off as too fake. Enjoy 3x MFJLabs
