There are those kind of bad movies that are so bad that are good. I love those. Fall Down Dead is not one of them. It is directed by Jon Keeyes, known for his low budget, straight on DVD productions. This is one of those.
The movie start out interesting. You get right in the action, you see some creation of the twisted mind that "The Picasso Killer" posses during the credits, and you prepare yourself for more of that. Well, after this part is over, you won't get any of it. Instead, you get to see a poorly made and acted little movie.
Acting is so bad. And you kinda understand who is to blame for it, when you meet the character played by David Carradine. This guy had his share of B movies, and always stood out, but in this one, his character, is simply hilarious. He gets to play an clumsy security guard, pretty much intended to be the only funny guy in the movie. But the script is so bad, i really thing he acted silly just to get over with it.
I must admit there are some creative parts regarding the filming techniques. We get to see some Kubrick or Argento influences in few scenes. But other than that, it's all bad.
Effects are nothing to write home about. You don't get to see them in the middle of the action, as you mostly see the aftermath of the killings. We also get some of the worst pistol sounds and visual effects for guns.
Bad movie. Not recommended. So bad, that i suggest watching Birdemic: Shock and Terror instead.
