The Fall Guy - Review

Engage Your Core.

4 / 5

The Guardians of the Galaxy team line up

Directed by David Leitch.

Stuntman Colt Seavers has to track down a missing movie star, solve a conspiracy and try to win back the love of his life while still doing his day job.


This big-screen love letter to stunts celebrates a part of the entertainment industry that frequently gets less recognition than it deserves. The Fall Guy is the epitome of the modern Hollywood blockbuster: over-expensive, full of glossy visual effects and a wafer-thin plot that is saved by its charismatic cast of recognisable faces.


Ryan Gosling continues to be one of the coolest men in Hollywood, now with director David Leitch on side to turn him into a smooth-talking stuntman. I could not get enough of the slapstick crammed into every scene - there is not a window left unsmashed or a car left unflipped, it's an action lover's dream.


The more you start to pick apart The Fall Guy the quicker it begins to disintegrate before your very eyes - it's practically held together by duct tape and rubber bands... But I cannot deny how much fun it was to see this loud and on the big screen.


Give stunt performers their Oscars.

Give me a Spicy Margarita.
