Lionsgate will soon release Fall, from director Scott Mann. I got a chance to check it out early and of course, I have some thoughts.
The movie centers on Becky (Grace Caroline Currey) and Hunter (Virginia Gardner), best friends whose lives are all about conquering fears and pushing limits. Their next conquest is a radio tower, that reaches a height of 2,000 feet. What could go wrong?
The majority of the movie takes place at the top of the tower where the two women find themselves stuck with no way down and time running short. You would think that a movie set in one spot would be boring, but with tons of drama, twists, and action, Fall manages to stay engaging from beginning to end.
Both stars, Grace Caroline Currey and Virginia Gardner played their roles well and were easy to empathize with. I can’t help but wonder how much of the stunts they did themselves. They were rather impressive.
I will be upfront, I’m terrified of heights so I’m not sure how much of the movie’s intensity is due to that. There were moments that had me freaking out, and moments that left me dizzy, which isn’t a bad thing. It got a physical reaction from me, not a lot of movies do that.
In the end, the movie is about a woman rediscovering her strength, and her will to live, overcoming her grief, and finding forgiveness. All of which were great messages. Fall is surprising and had much more substance than I expected. Fall keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. I highly recommend that you check it out. Luckily, you don’t have to wait long, Fall lands on Blu-ray + Digital and DVD on October 18th, from Lionsgate.
