Peter Travers of Rolling Stone gave the film four stars out of five, writing:. There's no denying the power of the tale or of Douglas's riveting performance—his best and riskiest since Wall Street. Douglas neither demonizes nor canonizes this flawed character. Marching across a violent urban landscape toward an illusory home, this shattered Everyman is never less than real Douglas speaks the line with a searing poignancy that illuminates uncomfortable truths without excusing the character.
Schumacher could have exploited those tabloid headlines about solid citizens going berserk. Instead, the timely, gripping Falling Down puts a human face on a cold statistic and then dares us to look away.
At the time of its release Douglas's father, actor Kirk Douglasdeclared "He played it brilliantly. I think it is his best piece of work to date.
He is the villain and the victim, MP3). Of course, we see many elements of our society that contributed to his madness. We even pity him. But the movie never condones his actions. Contextually, Falling Down was released in theatres less than one year after the Los Angeles riots.
In them, the targeting of Korean-Americans and their businesses by rioters was a point of fact.

Robinson added "the film treats virtually everyone around him [D-FENS] as worthless, and presents his violence as the comedic payoff, turns it into a tone-deaf, self-pitying lament about the terrible persecution facing the oppressed majority in an era of political correctness and increasing multiculturalism.
On the 25th anniversary of the film's release, film critic April Wolfe of LA Weekly wrote that it "remains one of Hollywood's most overt yet morally complex depictions of the modern white-victimization narrative, one both adored and reviled by the extreme right". Wolfe said "Today, we might see D-Fens and the white supremacist as the infighting sides of the far right — one couches racism in coded words like "thug," while the other wants an outright ethnic cleanse.
Ultimately, what both want is to return to their idea of a purer America, unburdened by the concerns of minorities and women". Wolfe suggested that Rupert Murdoch would "go on to bottle that fury and package it as patriotism" in creating Fox News.

I'm just a broken-hearted man I know it makes no sense but what else can I do? How can I move on when I'm still in love with you?
