Critic Reviews for Fall Guy

All Critics (3)

This is not a film about reality, but the reality that can only exist in movies and the sheer joy that comes from creating it.

Homenageando a cinematografia japonesa através de um bom exercício metalinguístico, o filme conta também com ótimas atuações (especialmente de Matsuzaka, lindíssima) e um desfecho inteligente.

I have seen a lot of strange, bizarre movies in my day, but Kinji Fukasaku's 1982 comedy Fall Guy is among the strangest.

Audience Reviews for Fall Guy

A movie within a movie. Comical and ambitious. This movie has excellent storylines about a stuntman who's willing to break an arm or a leg to take care of the ones he love. It's a movie about a man that lives in a life that blurs the line of real-life and life as a stuntman for movies.
