A Trite Exercise in Clichéd Tackiness
27 March 2011 | by (San Francisco, USA) – See all my reviews

Normally, I wait until a film has at least a thousand reviews on IMDb before I watch it, but the first hundred reviews promised me such an amazing movie, I decided to ignore my better judgment. Too bad I didn't realize that the first hundred reviews were probably all the director's friends, family & cronies.

The biggest problem with Jack Falls is that it has no vision at all. Instead, the director sought to replace true creativity by blindly copying fads and gimmicks from other movies. The "film noir" style is copied from Sin City (a laughably bad imitation at best), the "black and white with touch of color" is copied from Schindler's List, and the characters are all copied from a Guy Ritchie movie. The thing is, as derivative as it was, that formula may actually have resulted in an enjoyable movie if it weren't for the acting which was at times cringe- worthy but mostly just mediocre.

If you're any sort of movie aficionado, stay far away from this movie - unless you're in the mood for a night of groans and face-palms.
