**Fall is 47 Meters Down but with heights instead of depths – 47 Meter Up.**
Fall keeps your stomach in your throat with its dizzying heights and anxiety-inducing peril. The movie’s plot is extremely thin, but that’s what you would expect from a film with this premise. Grace Curry and Virginia Gardner’s despair seemed authentic through their convincing performances. Panic and distress filled every shot as the camera soaked in the unbelievable heights and endless landscapes. Scott Mann once again directs an emotional suspense-laden film that feels incredibly similar to 47 Meters Down, even borrowing an identical plot twist. Fall stretched on a little longer than needed, but I appreciated the staggering suspense and character development that elevated a meager concept to vertigo-inducing heights.
Right. First things first. Understood that you erect a 2000ft television relay tower back in the day, but when that industry moves to satellite delivery, why on Earth would anyone just leave this gradually rusting structure standing – only for it to come crashing down one day when the metal fatigue has won out? Hmmm! Anyway, luckily for us the planner’s ineptitude allowed for “Becky” (Grace Caroline Currey) and her friend “Hunter” (Virginia Gardner) to go climb it. It’s quite a big deal for the former woman – she had been free-climbing almost one year earlier with her friend and her husband “Dan” (Mason Gooding) when disaster struck and she has spent much of the intervening period married to Jack Daniels. Scorning any sensible planning – food, gloves etc. up they go – there is a ladder – and are soon at the top surveying the immensity of the view. Time to go down, the ladder gives way. The two are lucky to have the platform right at the top to take refuge on, but their bag – water and drone contained within – falls 50 feet and balances precariously on a redundant satellite dish below. What’s to do? The plot really does take a quite cynical turn when they fire a flare to attract the attention of some men in a nearby camper van, only for the guys to spot them and then proceed to steal their car! Otherwise, this is really just a remarkable feat of photography that certainly had my palms sweating. Director Scott Mann and the cinematographer (MacGregor) do manage to effectively draw us into the two friend’s predicament and if you are even vaguely acrophobic, then this film can be a really tough watch at times. Sadly, though, in the search for characterisation we discover that even at altitude, there is a place for a rather tiresome melodrama. Thereafter it is quite difficult to warm to either of the women who are being harried by some hungry buzzards as they perch! The ending is not good. To be fair, it isn’t straightforward either, it has a few quirks to keep us on our toes – but they are not terribly realistic quirks. Enjoy is not the correct word for this film – I cannot say I was too relaxed for much of my time in the cinema tonight, but if this is to be seen at all, then it does need that big screen. On television it will lose much of it’s photographic impact and that really is all this film is worth watching for – the acting and repetitive “Are you OK?” dialogue leaves much to be desired.
Adrenaline rushes to the max when you FALL
FALL is quite an exciting movie that will scare you especially if you have a fear of height. This thriller can really thrill you from the start till end. A running time of 107 mins might be a tad too long for such a simplistic premise, but the film maker managed to inject quite a lot of close-shave situations and some back stories. Many of the decisions made by the characters are believable and logical. There is a little twist toward the end (but I am not going to spoil it). I find that this twist strengthened the plot even more. I am satisfied with this movie. From those YouTube comments on its trailers, many did not highly of this movie. Let me tell you, you will change your mind after you watched it. The cast did a good job and acted very well. Watch it at a big screen cinemas if possible; your palms will be sweaty I bet of you.
Overlong but tense and compelling
From a plot standpoint, Fall bears striking similarity to another film from this year, The Ledge. But in most respects, Fall is a far superior film.
For one thing, the visual effects and backgrounds in Fall are remarkably convincing. I wasn’t afraid of heights before this film, but my throat dropped into my gut many times as the perilous situation unfolded.
The performances in Fall add to the authenticity as these two actresses really do feel like best friends who care about each other. I believed that they cared, and that made me care.
Makeup is also an element that they succeeded at here; as the days tick by and the girls have no food or water, they really do look like they’re on the brink of death. And it’s brutal to see.
Contained thrillers are very difficult to write because there is only so much one can do to keep up both stakes and emotional investment in one setting. For the most part, this film succeeds. Drama between the girls unfolds in a sometimes heartbreaking, believable way and the times when they try to save themselves from their dire predicament are always tensely executed.
What really didn’t work for me was the implausibility of the girls’ occasional obliviousness. Given how many days they are sitting in the same place, stuck, it’s insane how long it takes for them to come up with some solutions to their present danger, and how many solutions there are that they don’t come up with.
But I can overlook most of this. After all, people are flawed, and judgment is skewed in the face of danger. These aren’t plot holes; they’re just writing conveniences that at times annoyed me personally.
Still, the film is so well-acted, well-shot, well-paced, and compelling from a character perspective that I am thoroughly impressed with this as a contained thriller. It’s one of the better thrillers we’ve gotten this year.
