God bless this movie!!By onion (316 reviews) from leeds , 10 Sep 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]Best film i've seen in ages! Granted it's not perfect, but for what it lacks, it certainly makes up for in other areas.
If you hate X Factor watch this!

Watch Natural Born Killers insteadBy ColaSmoke (8 reviews) , 13 Jun 2013Uninspired. The film points out the ills in modern life and offers no solutions, except to shoot and kill the people 'responsible'. Forget films like Taxi Driver or video games like DOOM, if anything is going to incite gun spree killings, it'll be this one. It trivialises and glamorises shooting unarmed people, and in the name of what? Moralising comedy of all things. What's worse, it's not even funny. And nothing much happens, just one spree killing after another. Natural Born Killers is one hundred times better: it touches on similar issues, is hilarious, doesn't moralise, and thereby let's you decide who the bad guys are in society. If you're one of the countless people who need to be told what is right or wrong and think this film has something clever to say, how would you feel if someone similar to the protagonists paid your parents a visit in real life? I think this film is highly likely to inspire such events. After all, the two 'heroes' had a great time.
Thought provoking stuff and fun too :)By a customer , 02 Jun 2013And I thought I was alone... Having just read through some of the other reviews it would appear that others do feel the same way about society's decline. Anyway, about the film, it was very good. Thought provoking stuff and fun too :)
Fire on the crap !!!!By chiquitou (17 reviews) , 27 May 2013Very good film showing all the issues from this modern society we live in. We totally surrounded by wasteful informations, who really care about 4chan, 9gag, or any crap thing created by a feelingless world ruled by cruauty???? Very good film to thing about our sins.
Consumer Complaints Get BiblicalBy Rigamortis (98 reviews) from South London , 26 May 2013We all like a moan, we all encounter morons and we all fantasise about making bad things go away with extreme prejudice (for prejudice read VIOLENCE). Michael Douglas did it for us in Falling Down but, somewhere along the way, he lost our vote. He was just a self-centred psycho who got upset that inflation affected the price of canned soda. Frank, on the other hand, is a nice guy who is taken advantage of and finds himself standing under the sewage pipe of life showering in everyone's waste. Yes, a bit of bone in the vacinity of his back might make his life better. But, he's not a coward. He just wants a quiet life. A pivotal event convinces him that peace (the spiritual kind) is won at the end of a gun barrel. And he knows just who to point it at. His debut protest murder is witnessed by a young girl called Roxy who insists on joining the party. So begins 'Falling Down: The Road Trip' and there's nothing wrong with that. With the twisted comic banter and the psycho-sexual overtones (stock profiles 101) this is like Ryan and Tatum O'Neal stopped papering the moon and started decorating it with brains. But, so much more entertaining. Roxy gives Hit Girl a run for her money in both potty mouth and mass murder. And her day wear is so much less conspicuous. Though you'd think popping many caps in broad daylight would raise a few more eyebrows. Frank is the rule maker who is very strict on who should die. They can't just be irritating or obnoxious, they have to represent the slow death of civilisation. Endless greed, ridicule, obsessive navel gazing in a 'me first' culture. You know, the American Way. This won't tickle every funny bone. But, if you don't at least get it (laughs or not) then maybe Frank and Roxy should come visit. Cos if you don't recognise the symptoms you could already be infected with the disease. A little pre-emptive surgery? Nah! This is great escapism on film, but it never pans out well in reality. If we shot all the overbearing reality stars, there'd be a bullet drought in 24 hours. We can just banish them to obscurity and wait for the next bus full of talentless noise makers to disgrace our screens. Watching it won't change your life (probably), but you should be glad you did. So, please do. Thank you for turning off your phone during this feature (you'll see ... you'll all see).
