Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An unconvincing if not exactly unwatchable tale of two polar-opposite brothers."
‑ Justin Chang, Variety
"The Fall features a mostly-talented cast doing good work and surprisingly striking visuals given the film's budget, but it fails to weave any particularly intriguing twists from dark secrets past and present and rushes towards an abrupt conclusion."
‑ Tyler Foster, Boxoffice Magazine
"With The Fall, writer-director John Krueger buries a promising neo-noir plot with ponderous pacing and uneven performances and dialogue."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"The Fall is really just a dull, poorly acted courtroom drama with glossy, autumnal cinematography and an implausible twist."
‑ James C. Taylor, L.A. Weekly
