I was lucky enough to see this film in the theater. I thought it was really fun and watching it felt like I had traveled back in time to 1986. Sadly movies aren't made like this any more, but Falcon Song proves that it is possible. You can just feel the passion behind this movie. The retro style was handled properly and didn't rely on endless pop culture references, college humor, and sarcasm like so many films do that cash in on the "80s" thing. The locations are great and it was refreshing to see that a light hearted film like this can do so well. The story is relatively basic; a guy cruises into a quirky, small town and shakes things up. There are a good amount of kittens in this film, which is pretty high up on my list. Gabriel Sunday's acting is excellent and it was really fun to see that Martin Kove from the original Karate Kid movies can still be part of a respectable film. The Directing is solid and the cinematography is outstanding. All in all, Falcon Song is worth checking out and possibly adding to your collections of 80s movies!
