Academy Award-winners Michael Douglas ("Disclosure," "Wall Street," and "Basic Instinct") and Robert Duvall ("A Civil Action," "The Godfather") star with Emmy-winner and Oscar-nominee Barbara Hershey ("Portrait of a Lady," "Hannah and Her Sisters") in this action-drama about a man's odyssey into madness, prompted by the effects of modern city life. It follows two ordinary men: a laid-off defense worker (Douglas) driven beyond frustration in an endless traffic jam now on a path of violence and potential self-destruction, and an LAPD detective (Duvall), only hours away from retirement who is determined to find him and stop his vigilante acts. Directed by hit-maker Joel Schumacher ("Batman Forever," "The Client").
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Falling Down's popcorn-friendly take on its complex themes proves disquieting -- and ultimately fitting for a bleakly entertaining picture of one man's angry break with reality.
At first comes across like a mean-spirited black comedy and then snowballs into a reasonably power...
June 21, 2017
Sometimes funny, sometimes touching, and certainly unnerving.
