HE SWORE TO PROTECT BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY
John ''Falcon'' Chapman (Michael Jai White, The Dark Knight), 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, Cindy (Laila Ali, ''S.W.A.T. ''), 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.

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. --Sheila O'Malley, Roger Ebert.com

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I thought the title sounded familiar after I rented it I had already seen it but wasn't spending an hour on the phone fighting over 2 bucks. This kinda stuff needs to stop.
As far as the movie goes. Its ok at best. Action is good story is so so but coulda done without seeing it twice.
If you haven't seen it and bored may be worth a watch but Id wait until its free.
turned into a good movie. There was enough action and the hero actually looked like
he could beat somebody up. (It is tiring to watch some little old guy with a belly and
pipestem arms beating up huge athletic men or swarms of ninjas). And the bad guys
were bad, and the crime they were committing was evil, etc. etc. but then we really don't
want to watch our heroes charge into church and beat the hell out a bunch of nice people.
I recommend this movie.
The actors were great, the scenery was, great, the premise of the movie
was great, language was real...I really enjoyed this movie on a cloudy December
I read other reviews getting all upset about bullets and "It looks like another film"...
well, yeah! It's an action film...in Brazil...so he swung a hand and foot at a bad guy...
it was deserved! I wanted to be entertained by an action movie, not get involved
in "used bullets"....after the gun on "Rush" was loaded with a live round, maybe it's
smart to used spent bullets?
This is a great action film, and I wish it would be a series...

Plot: an ex-soldier is suffering from mental health problems, and is suicidal. He finds out his sister has been beaten up and left for dead, so he gets involved in tracking down the culprits ... Basic stuff!
But the acting and superb fight scenes lift this movie to a higher level. It's the first installment of a film series.
I bought this on German Blu-ray (as it's not been released in the UK in HD). It's easy to opt for English language, ad it plays on UK Blu-ray machines. The picture and sound quality are excellent. There are a few extras (a 'making of').
P. S If you don't know the name, the immediately recognisable Lateef Crowder is a bonus addition again showcasing his skill.
