Storyline

In a big American city, the serial killer The Picasso Killer is terrorizing the dwellers and the police department does not have lead to find him. The bartender Christie Wallace dreams on moving to the countryside with her six year-old daughter Zoe to have a peaceful life far from the violence of the city. Late night of Christmas Eve, Christie leaves the Tides Bar where she works and walks back home. In an alley, she sees a woman dying covered on blood and The Picasso Killer sees Christie and chases her. She runs to a commercial building where the night watchman Wade is reluctant to open the door and does not give credit to Christie. She calls the police and Detectives Stefan Kerchek and Lawrence Kellog attend the call. When Christie tells that she can recognize the infamous serial-killer, there is a blackout, the phones are dead and the detectives cannot call the precinct. They lock the building waiting for reinforcement but sooner they find that The Picasso Killer has broken in the ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Unfortunately...it was Horrible!
13 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

Fall Down Dead is instantly recognizable as a low-budget film within the first few minutes, and even looks like a TV-movie. I didn't mind that, as I thought this was going to be a pretty good thriller as it does have a good cast and a good plot. But then it made me wonder how on earth this movie had a theatrical release in some countries, but it was going good...for the first few minutes. Everything then crumbled, and just got worse...and worse...and worse. Fall Down dead is an awful movie, period.

The movie's plot tells the story about a young woman who witnesses "The Picasso Killer" strike, while she is walking home from a late night shift at work. She manages to take refuge in a building with a security guard, and the cops soon come over to question her. However, as a blackout sweeps the city - The Picasso Killer begins killing off the group one-by-one whilst trying to get to the woman. A good plot and it interested me, but the whole movie just stinks. Really, really stinks.

This movie was horrible, and a pathetic attempt of a movie. I mean, where do I start? The movie was horribly boring and slow, and the character actions were very unrealistic and I disliked all the characters - especially the cops, who were so stupid. David Carradine was given a pathetic character to work with and smiled his way through his acting performance as if he was thinking "Why am I doing this movie?", Dominique Swain looked hysterical throughout the whole movie and looked like she was going to explode, Mehmet Gunsur was boring, Udo Keir sleepwalked through his role, Monica Dean was just there for no reason at all and all the others were just disposable. It's a shame as practically all of the actors usually give great performances, but there characters are such morons and their lines are just so dull you can't blame them.

The movie has no suspense, tension or anything like that. The death scenes suck apart from the opening scene, and the killer was lousy. The soundtrack was horrible and some parts were laughable. For instance, a couple discover a dead person in an elevator and their facial expressions were just stupid and unrealistic - they don't even scream and their cries seem forced. Then there's the token sex scenes with two disposable characters who serve no purpose to the film and are horrible characters, and the "hot" friend of the lead character who just takes her clothes off and bares all within the first couple of minutes within the film...never to be seen in the movie again. The cops were completely stupid and you couldn't root for them at all, because the main cop had this "dramatic" back story in which he was depressed blah blah blah, spare me the boring bull - it didn't make his character any more interesting, in fact it just made him even more dull than he already was.

Fall Down Dead is just a desperate movie which hardly tries, but successfully manages to fail after the first couple of minutes. There were no enjoyable performances, the characters weren't likable, the killer was lousy, the deaths were boring, there was no tension, suspense or anything like that, the soundtrack sucked, there were plots holes, it dragged on in parts and ultimately it was a disappointment! The opening scene showed promise...but all-in-all this was a very crappy film.

3/10.
