God bless this movie!!By onion (345 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!

Fire on the crap !!!!By chiquitou (22 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 (102 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).
thats the best way!By merlinsmess (5 reviews) , 22 May 2013Super, an unexpected hit. i knew nothing about this film. that the best way! This film is great but not for the feint hearted
Great social observations of modern lifeBy Missywissy (18 reviews) , 19 May 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]This film was really interesting and thought provoking. It's dark humour and social observations were so accurate. It's scary but true. Would definitely watch it.
Funny, absorbing a classicBy a customer , 18 May 2013Great dark comedy. Encapsulates everything i hate about modern tv. Which is littered with talentless hacks who are famous for just being famous. My only gripe is that they didn't get away with it in the end.
