I like Michael Jae White. I really do. It’s just a shame that he doesn’t necessarily have the best movies. Blood And Bone and Black Dynamite are probably two of his best movies. So is Falcon Rising up there? No, not exactly. For the most part, it’s a pretty decent movie to watch, especially if you’re a MJW fan. Think too hard and you’ll start noticing flaws and soon you’ll picking apart the film. The film is cheesy, but thankfully it knows that is. The humor can be off at times and the dramatic tones can come off as soap opera like. The dialogue can be a little so-so at times and the action sequences are, for most part, watchable. Even if the sound effects are a bit odd. The acting is okay at times and the pacing can be a bit of a drag, the characters can be clichéd and cartoony at times but for the most part you know their role in the film. All in all, it’s not Jae’s best movie, but it’s something we can gnaw on as we wait for the highly anticipated Skin Trade coming next year.
Your old call sign……

It’s a comforting image, when you see a straight to video action star in a one sheet looking down and slightly angry, with a shirtless gangster holding a samurai sword. It’s comforting because you know exactly what your going to get, a revenge film with lots of fights and a decent final boss fight.
These films have been around since the mid-eighties, and it proves that people still love these films, even if they won’t admit it, because they follow a narrative that is as old as time.
Tortured soul, who drinks a lot, has a fight in a shop by people holding the place up, gets visited by his sister, she gets hurt, he wants revenge, and there are lots of wonderfully choreographed fight sequences.
And if you hadn’t guessed that those cops are corrupt the minute they appear on screen, you haven’t seen enough of these films.
It’s nothing new, it doesn’t attempt to be anything that it isn’t, and it’s all the better for it.
