Falcon RisingFormer marine John 'Falcon' Chapman, a dark anti-hero driven by guilt and suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, who will destroy himself unless given something else to destroy - a useful weapon-of-last-resort for the U.S. State Department. When Chapman';s sister is brutally attacked while on assignment in Brazil, Chapman flies into Sao Paulo to track down her assailants, quickly entering the city';s seedy underbelly and discovering a world of drugs, the sex trade, corrupt cops, and organized crime syndicates battling for control.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "Falcon Rising"RogerEbert.comSeptember 05, 2014
A throwback to 1980s action films, with strong men at the center going up alone against an unambiguously evil foe, "Falcon Rising" is an entertaining film with a thrilling physical performance from Michael Jai White.Detroit NewsSeptember 05, 2014
"Falcon Rising" is filled with so many action-flick cliches it could serve as a text on how not to do things.New York TimesSeptember 04, 2014
Y. T. Parazi's unmysterious screenplay drops cheesily clever one-liners on the way to a finish that suggests a bid for sequels, though you're more likely to find those on late-night cable than in theaters.Seattle TimesSeptember 04, 2014
It's a straightforward vengeance tale with no other ambition than to entertain. That said, it has something.Village VoiceSeptember 02, 2014
Beyond isolated moments of dickish charm - and his climactic four-way fight involving a sword, a crucifix, and two steel pipes - Chapman just comes across like another pseudo-heroic American behaving badly abroad.The DissolveSeptember 05, 2014
The structural missteps do little to diminish the immense pleasure of seeing [Michael Jai] White in motion.Chicago Daily HeraldSeptember 04, 2014
To the movie's detriment, White doesn't get to show us what he can really do until 30 minutes into the story, then again near the end when he takes on three armed baddies.
