FALCON RISING IN THE NEWS

  Critics Weigh in on Michael Jai White and Laila Ali

in Falcon Rising

Mr. Chapman administers some of his (amplified) thwacks and drop kicks with a likable, you-should-know-better air of amusement…..

~ New York Times By Nicolas Rapold

 

Michael Jai White leaps and spins and kicks, flying through the air, in direct contrast to his morose personality from the opening of the film. It’s thrilling.

~ RogerEbert.com By Sheila O’Malley

It’s about control,” White said about the fight scenes. When you are doing martial arts you are practicing not hitting people. That’s the different between martial arts and fighting.”

~ EUR Web By Eunice Moseley
