Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Starts out with an intriguing premise but grows muddier as it grows more mystical."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"Despite its grander ambitions, the film ultimately feels minor and superficial."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"So poorly acted and ineptly written and directed that it wouldn't pass muster as the pilot for a particularly asinine soap on the WB station."
‑ Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
"Boring diversions dilute this drama about a man with miraculous healing powers."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Ends up reducing its hero's struggle (and bad attitude) to a single past trauma and its resultant daddy issues."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Time Out New York
"Too much goodness and light and not enough anti-hero doom "One Fall.""
‑ Ron Wilkinson, Monsters and Critics
"Writer/director/actor Marcus Dean Fuller would have been better served having some collaborators on this metaphysical fable."
‑ Susan Granger, SSG Syndicate
"The cast is engaging, and there are a few light-chuckle moments, but the script needed another rewrite, and the film itself needed to be guided by a thornier sensibility than Fuller's."
‑ Ernest Hardy, Village Voice
"a charming but inconsistent little superhero indie"
‑ Christopher Null,
"This portrait of a miracle worker needed some real miracle workers to make it anything but the unpalatable, whimsical self-indulgence that it is."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
