Disappointing, after the trailer,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Fall [DVD] (DVD)
I think for me, the trailer gave me a different impression of what to expect from the film.
With such expectations, I was destined to be disappointed by the end result. I approached the film from the love of Hero and House of Flying Daggers perspective of intensely colourful visuals, interesting scenary, and although I knew no martial arts of comparable levels were to be found in The Fall, I was anticipating a little more substance to keep me interested in the story, whatever form that may take - i'm flexible. As a fan of world cinema, (not just the Pan's Labyrinth types, but also the slower, more thought provoking examples) I can also appreciate drama, and development of a plot, gradually winning you over to the characters, making you concerned what will befall them next, and generally being involved. But sadly The Fall just seemed to leave me cold there, i couldn't be won over.
The film clearly wasn't for me, but I do think others may appreciate it. It's as cheap to buy as rent from a well known chain, so give it a go.
