The Fall Guy (2024) – Movie Review

by | May 6, 2024 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

The Fall Guy makes for a lovely and entertaining romantic comedy, but it fails to achieve its full potential as a stunt work showcase for Hollywood’s unsung action heroes. For months now, many in the film and online community have heralded The Fall Guy as a love letter to the old action films Hollywood used to make and they’ve claimed that it honors the men and women who beat their bodies up to make the stars look great on camera. This reaction had me quite excited because action choreography is such an overlooked art that has long deserved recognition from the Academy Awards, and the bonus is that this film is helmed by someone who’s been an integral part in 21st century film action. There are a multitude of reasons why this film could have been something truly special but leave it to Hollywood to shift focus to where they think the money is.
