Editorial Reviews

When Chance (Brian Presley) returns home after five years in jail, he is determined to escape his past, start a new life and make peace with his father, (Ed Harris, Golden Globe® winner), who is the head of the Aryan Brotherhood prison gang and serving a life sentence for murder.  Upon his release, his dreams of a crime-free future begin to disintegrate when he is forced to assume his best friend's outrageous debt to a local mobster. Despite being thrust back into a world of organized fighting, drug dealing and ties to corrupt police agents, Chance falls in love with Pearl (Academy Award® nominee Taraji P. Henson) and the prospect of living a normal life seems almost within reach. But will he be able to escape the crimes of his father and his past?

By Z Hayes HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on January 5, 2011
Format: DVD
Honestly, if this had not popped up on our instant play list on Netflix, my husband and I would never have watched this movie, but I'm glad we did. This is one of those compelling human dramas that draws viewers in with its difficult subject matter, and credible performances by a talented ensemble cast. Though Ed Harris is in this movie, and delivers a powerful performance, Brian Presley delivers a visceral performance as Chance, an ex-con who wishes to get away from a life of crime.

The story begins with a young Chance and his best friend Beat by the beach in San Pedro. Ed Harris plays Chance's father Liam, and when Liam sees Beat's bruised and battered face, he storms Beat's house in a fit of rage. His violence results in Beat's father's death and Liam is sentenced to life in prison. Fast forward years later - Chance has just been released after serving five years in prison. His only wish is to lead a clean life, yet his past stalks him unrelentingly. Beat, his childhood friend (Chad Lindberg in a memorable performance) is a tortured and damaged soul who can't seem to escape his own traumatic past. Chance feels a sense of loyalty to Beat, and this loyalty prevents him from just walking away when he is asked to make good on Beat's debts to a mobster and also a crooked cop, Rath (Ash Adams who also wrote and directed this film). Meanwhile, Chance makes a startling discovery - he is the father of a five-year-old boy August by his ex-girlfriend Kat. When Kat leaves to pursue her own interests, Chance is left at a loss. In steps Pearl (Taraji P. Henson) who helps Chance find his footing.

With all this drama unfurling, there's still the parallel story of Chance's father, Liam who has since moved up the prison ranks to become the leader of the Aryan Brotherhood.

I came across this movie trailer while searching for another one and was very interested. When I read the reviews on Amazon, I became a little wary. Boy am I glad I went with my curiosity!
I never really got the feeling that the budget was low while watching this movie. And I came away thinking this could easily be someone's life under those same circumstances. I thought it was well directed but a little choppy at times. Never the less, it held my attention until the very end.
Ed Harris is a genious. He is one of only a very few that can draw you in like a moth to a flame, saying so much with little actually being said. Peter Weller was fun to watch as the comedy relief in this dark drama. In fact, all of the actors in this film did a great job. I prefer this movie to anything the big budget studios are showing today.

I pretty much like a lot of Taraji P. Henson's work. She's good in this too. The main character is a guy who has had some tough breaks in life from a very young age, but he didn't have a horrible childhood up until a certain point. The story begins with him getting out of jail, discovering he has a son, meeting Taraji's character, trying to avoid heading back down the road that took him to jail, and making a new start.The acting is good and the story is interesting. I would watch it again.

Ok I spent my day off finding things to do, not that I didn't have plenty, but as the reviewer before me I stumbled on this gold mine. It is excellent well written, directed and acted. When I find something really good in the genre that I love I try and give a review. Please watch this movie it's excellent. Two thumbs up.

Ed Harris portrays a jailed convict with a long criminal past. His son just recently released from prison wants to break free from following in his father's footsteps, but is drawn into the crime world by a family friend. His wife leaves him with the care of their son and he realizes the futility of crime as a way of life. Ed Harris and his son try to work through their differences; there is no way out of Ed, but his son works toward a normal life in which to raise his son. Good solid movie, has violence, emotional moments, and a ray of hope. I recommend.

... and that's why I bought it. But I'm sorry, half way through I was just waiting for it to end. Actually the best acting performance in the film was by Ash Adams - and I did not realize he was the director until the movie credits came up at the end. Two of my favorite actors ever, Ed Harris ["Jacknife"] and Amy Madigan ["Twice in a Lifetime" and "In the Name of the People"] - were wasted in their roles, I feel. However, I don't think there were good roles for them in this film, and they weren't afforded meaty enough material to make their performances memorable.

The prison scenes were not believable. What maximum security prison do you know of where you are able to visit an inmate right in his own cell? When the dad [Ed Harris] and the son [Brian Presley] were arguing at the top of their lungs like they were going to fight there was not a corrections officer in sight. The entire movie looked to be thrown together. I realize it was low-budget and there were problems with the production, but the consumer is not required to take any of that into consideration. All we know is that we want to see a great movie. When I saw Ed Harris' name on the DVD cover I just wanted to check it out. "Once Fallen" is not a movie I will watch again.
