    Synopsis


    Falling Down
    It's just not William Foster's (Michael Douglas) day. Laid off from his defense job, Foster gets stuck in the middle of the mother of all traffic jams. Desirous of attending his daughter's birthday party at the home of his ex-wife (Barbara Hershey), Foster abandons his car and begins walking, encountering one urban humiliation after another (the Korean shopkeeper who obstinately refuses to give change is the worst of the batch). He also slowly unravels mentally, finally snapping at a fast-food restaurant that refuses to serve him breakfast because it's "too late." Running amok with an arsenal of weapons at the ready, Foster -- also known as "D-FENS" because of his vanity license plate -- rapidly becomes a source of terror to some, a folk hero to others. It's up to reluctant cop Prendergast (Robert Duvall), on the eve of his retirement, to bring D-FENS down. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Good Movie, Excellent Performance By Douglas

      'Falling Down' is a really good film and in many regards can be considered a 'dark, dark comedy'. The dvd presentation is very good and offers the film in both anamorphic widescreen 2.35:1 and full-screen. Recommended!

      Still think this movie is fantastic and we all can probably relate to Michael Douglas' desperation. Sometimes you just take all you can and you want to explode. Most of us don't. He does.

      Michael Douglas plays a man pretty much down on his luck. Its just not one of those days and all he wants to do is get to his son. Little things that add up in this movie that makes it GREAT.

      Wouldn't it be great to blow away the jerk on the street that says something smart to you? Without the consequences of course! This movie is fun and in your face! Definitely worth watching!

      Finally a movie that shows what happens to a person who has had enough. Michael Douglass is brilliant as father trying to see his daughter on her birthday and no one is gonna stop him

      I first saw this movie on TV and I missed half of it but it hooked me in enough to purchase and watch again and it was even better the second time around.

      A man loses his temper and wreaks havoc in one day. Falling Down is my favorite Michael Douglas film.

      Michael Douglas is perfect in this role. The movie looks great in blu ray.
