Storyline

When the sudden and shocking death of a coworker sends everyone reeling at Gault Capital, JANE, uncovers a very dangerous secret. Her boss, charismatic billionaire Thaddeus Gault, is suspected of massive financial fraud. An assassin, FRANK, is dispatched to silence her forever. Jane's flight from the office is forestalled when her pursuer shuts down her elevator. Now, trapped and alone, Jane must find a way to escape her steel cage before the killer reaches her. This brooding and relentless thriller plunges our heroine, Jane, into a free fall of betrayal and terror. To survive Jane must find the inner strength and courage to defeat the powers that hold her and her dreams captive by fear. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

After Jane calls Ray from the office and he offers to come get her, she hangs up and puts the phone on her desk. The phone shows 9.32pm. Later, after presumably over an hour (from the conversation between Ray and Colleen at the bar where they decide to wait one more hour), Ray picks up the phone which turns on automatically and we can see the time as 9.30pm which would make this scene happen before Jane even got it into the elevator.

This thriller needs a budget boost
22 May 2015 | by clarkmick33See all my reviews

Watching a straight to DVD movie is always interesting experience - you never hear about these movies so you don't know what to expect. Some low budget movies can pull off great things with the story despite the limited budget. But this movie needs that budget ......badly.

This thriller premise started out quite interesting with a case of suicide in the corporate environment of finance. There was a whole office of people - "This could get interesting" I thought thinking it may become a great "whodunit" type. However this concept was quickly shot down by everyone leaving the office and the whole direction of the movie becoming quite apparent which totally deflated the thrill and left this movie as a low budget action flick.

Typical bad guy comes along, chases woman throughout office, despite being a professional he has really bad aim when it counts, he likes to walk when chasing people. He then threatens people with his goofy stare and cheesy dialogue.

The woman then makes it to the lift and then over half the movie is based around the lift. The movie should have been more accurately called "Stuck in the Lift"

The final show down between the woman and the guy is laughable - the conclusion of which only then does the movie title Free fall really mean anything.

Nice to watch if you are looking for something to accompany that pizza and beer............and oh so much more beer.
