Fall (2022) Movie Ending, Explained
The next day, one of the vultures flies down and rests on the platform. It begins to nibble at the flesh as it gets closer to Becky’s leg. Becky manages to capture that vulture by the throat and bash it, killing it, while waiting for that moment.
Becky manages to connect to the harness and pull herself down to the dish, where Hunter’s dead body lies half mangled by the impact of the Fall, after eating it to regain strength.
Her stomach has already been ripped open by the vultures. The vulture that is nibbling on Hunter’s flesh notices Becky’s bloodstained face and flies away, realizing there is another hunter.
Becky, sobbing and whispering, types a message to her father, stuffs the phone inside Hunter’s shoe, stuffs the shoe in Hunter’s exposed stomach, and then pushes off the satellite.
In the following scene, we see Becky’s father, James, driving toward the tower and reaching for the base, where we see police cars and paramedics already present.
When she sees a dead body being carted away by the paramedics, his heart sinks, but then he sees Becky, and the film ends with their tearful reunion.
Fall (2022) Movie Review
From the standpoint of the premise, Fall is a flawed film because it reveals how underwritten and cliched the characters are. To find closure, the two protagonists decide to scale a 2000-foot tower that is already rickety and crumbling.
But it’s Scott Mann’s direction that makes Fall so effortlessly engaging, especially when he records the characters climbing and keenly focuses on the bent steps, the loose screws of the ladder, or the two protagonists’ moments of physical prowess. It manages to reveal Fall as a film with insufficient emotional depth (the pedestrian dialogue doesn’t help matters).
Fall, on the other hand, does its job as a movie capable of eliciting tension and forcing you to have clammy hands due to Mann’s use of wide shots and drone shots to evoke the feeling of standing atop a structure of great height.
Fall is one of those rare and engaging mid-budget movies that demonstrate Scott Mann’s expertise as a technically proficient and sound director.
The visceral excitement and tension smooth over the shoddy CGI at times. The performances, particularly that of Grace Caroline Currey as Becky, make you believe in her character arc even if the writing doesn’t.
