5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazingly well done! 16 décembre 2013
Par J. David Michaels - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
I was blown away by this movie. It is extremely well acted, the story is gripping and very romantic for those who love romance. I have a lot of movies, but this one made it to my top 3 favorites instantly. I have watched it three times since I received it. You should first see the original movie The Falls prior to watching this movie so you can see how the relationship between Chris and RJ begins. I hope there is another sequel to this movie. I highly recommend this movie.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Awesome gay-themed movie especially for me who came out while married 1 mars 2014
Par JohnnyC - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
As a man who was married for many years before coming to grips with the fact that I was gay, I thought this movie was just about perfect. Very accurately depicted the struggle on the man's part and also the difficulties faced by the wife. I would definitely recommend this movie. Although is brought up a lot of emotions in me, I nonetheless loved it because of its quality, accuracy, and all-around entertainment value.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Absolutely Superb! 22 janvier 2014
Par a viewer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
I didn't know that the sequel had been made until I accidentally discovered it here on Amazon. Needless to say, I ordered it immediately and I was not disappointed. As in the first movie, this one is excellently acted by supreme artists and it is powerfully written and directed by Jon Garcia, who just got it better the second time around. Sequels rarely live up to the original but this is the exception here. It was absolutely superb and surpassed my expectations. There were many tears shed watching this film because it speaks to so many people, not just gay people, but to everyone on so many different levels. One can identify with all of the major characters to some degree or another. The acting is truly superb which is so rare for a low budget gay film. The sound is a lot better this time around than the first. The cinematography is beautiful. The whole film is riveting because one is rooting for everyone....all the characters make one feel love, betrayal, pain, denial, sorrow, hope. Kudos to Mr. Garcia, Mr. Ferrucci, and Mr. Farmer for not disappointing this viewer who fell in love with the first movie and is even more in love with the second movie. If there is a third, I will be indeed be buying it...and sharing it. Thank you, thank you!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Well-Acted Continuation 4 mai 2015
Par Professeur Xavier - Publié sur Amazon.com

**Please note that there will be spoilers**

This is a sequel to "The Falls." If you have not seen the first movie, it's a love story between two Mormon missionaries who have tried, in vain, to lead Christian lives. Upon meeting on their mission, they fall in love and discover more about themselves than they realized existed. The movie ends without our knowing the disposition of their relationship, though. It's assumed that they moved on to live happily ever after.

Apparently, that was not the case. This continuation picks up five years later, and we find R.J. and Chris in different places in their lives. R.J. came to terms with his sexuality and moved from Idaho to Washington to lead a full life. He finds what he believes is love and starts to live a regular life, holding an editor job and even writing books.

Chris, on the other hand, never came to terms with his sexuality. He went through conversion therapy, which led him to get married to a beautiful woman, both of whom had a daughter. He lives what is supposed to be the perfect life based on what he's learned from childhood and what's he's been inculcated with by his religion. He does everything right.

The death of a mutual friend brings them back to Portland, which was the setting of the original movie. R.J. still loves Chris, but Chris rebuffs him at every turn, instead making it clear that he's straight, happily married, and a devoted father. They spend some awkward time with each other while in Portland, but they both return to their lives in their respective cities. But it doesn't end there for R.J.

Here's my breakdown of the movie on a few levels:

ACTING

For a low-budget movie with no-name actors, the acting was good. At the least, everyone--with the exception of Chris's mother--struck me as believable. Between the lovebirds, Chris is a much better actor. In contrast to the first movie, he's intense, guarded this time around. He's struggling against sexual predispositions, and you can tell it in his eyes. He comes off as cold and unfeeling except when interacting with his family. But in moments of weakness, his heart aches for R.J., and you can tell it by his expressions and gestures. There is a memorable scene in which he leaves R.J. to go to his room, sits down on his bed, and starts to cry because of the yearning and ache he clearly feels for R.J. even after five years and a perfect marriage.

R.J. is capable, but he could use some acting help. He comes off as stiff, but not because his character should be that way; it seems that he as an actor is stiff and stale. In the first movie, it was noticeable, but at least it worked for what he was trying to portray: the good little Mormon boy who operated in the sandbox, never to have deviated. For the sequel, it doesn't work well. He's freer now, more willing to explore everything in life. He dresses in a contemporary fashion. The stale acting doesn't work. It doesn't fully take away from his credibility; it just makes it a little harder to follow him. I will say, though, he does brighten up when in scenes with Chris's character.

Even though she wasn't a main character, I do want to highlight Chris's wife. She has some moments of incredulity, though this could be related to the fact that she's a clueless Mormon wife willing to do anything to keep her husband satisfied, but she strikes me as a capable actor. You can really see her shine when she discovers that Chris is in a tryst with R.J. Her begging Chris to remain with his family, to not abandon her and their daughter, to keep everything in the status quo was heartbreaking. You really feel the betrayal.

PLOT

It's a bit trite. You can go on Netflix and find several Mormon-coming-of-age-by-discovering-what's-really-fun-in-life type of movies. And it's always the same: two white guys, a mammoth worth of pent-up sexual emotions, "Happy Days"-like hairstyles, and laughable bible verses coming out of their mouths every other sentence. The last movie covered that pretty well, but we only get a portion of it in this iteration; it's primarily through Chris and his family.

There are deviations, however. We have R.J. who gives the impression of being obsessed with Chris, but it doesn't come off as creepy. Instead, it comes off as incredibly sad and sweet at the same time. Here you have a fellow driving 900 miles just to see the same person who rejected him two weeks before at the funeral of their mutual friend. He's desperate without seeming desolate. He's hopeful without seeming deluded.

PRODUCTION

On the one hand, it's clear that this is a low-budget movie. There aren't loud explosions or scenes full of people in flying through the air while kung fu fighting. You don't see a sea full of zombies swarming the land. There are no superheroes blasting their way through the enemies. It's just two decent-looking guys, a drab city (Salt Lake City), and a cast of regular-looking supporting actors. Throw in a cheap motel where R.J. stays, and you get to understand why the director has to rely on other aspects to carry this movie to fruition.

He does this capably, though not perfectly. He properly leans on the actors to move each scene through, allowing people to focus on their intensity with each other as well as on their struggles against their own internal emotions. It really takes the focus away from the production quality. In a few cases, he actually uses the fact of a low budget to his advantage, namely with the cheap, dirty motel where R.J. chooses to stay while visiting Salt Lake City. Putting aside that the producers likely couldn't afford anything better, you wouldn't want him staying in a four-star hotel. He doesn't have the salary for it, but it would also detract for the somber attitude (about not being able to be with Chris) that he needs to have to be convincing.

OVERALL

If you can forgive the plodding sometimes, you'll find that this movie is excellent for being low-budget. The focus is on the feelings between the protagonists, the internal war between them, the fight against their deep-seated religious beliefs, confusion about where they stand in life if they choose to abandon everything that they've learned from their religion. There isn't a neat dénouement, but it's pretty clear what happens after the movie ends. I definitely recommend giving the movie your attention.

Says so much about religion, in general. Even though the movie is about two Mormon missionaries. Really touches a sensitive nerve with me. I grew up with a church background (not Mormon) and I spent a lot of time praying not to be gay. It didn't work. I got married, had two kids, and then divorced. Then came out. You need to watch The Falls first and then this one.
