Storyline

In a smoke-filled dive in Buffalo, NY, David Marx tells us his tale of obsession, betrayal, and murder - leading him to an uncertain fate "underneath Niagara Falls." David tells us how his beautiful redheaded ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Barnes, has disappeared and how he ended up the guardian of the 2.5 million dollars that "was supposed to have bought Jen's safety." Three nights ago, David finds police detectives Crane and O'Keefe trashing his apartment. Taking him to Police Headquarters, they interrogate David about Jennifer's disappearance, and Crane - in the name of Jen's father, the rich and powerful Ethan Barnes - brutalizes poor David in hopes of getting a confession out of him. When falsely accused, what's a film noir hero to do but search for the truth himself? Written by Paul DeNigris

To be avoided ...............
23 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I mistakenly thought that this neo-noir effort from the Buffalo - Niagara Falls area might be something different. Unfortunately I was incorrect. There are are many problems with "The Falls", that really have nothing to do with it's low budget video production. Immediately one has to question why all the constant narration? My feeling is that if you have a decent script, the audience will follow along, without having to be insulted with voice over storytelling. The acting is very amateurish, which is not unexpected, but simply adds to the problems. Finally, the entire thing is annoyingly shot like an MTV music video, which I found to be totally unacceptable. The narration, bad acting, and annoying video effects are all good reasons why this should be avoided. - MERK
