The reaction to the film has been overwhelmingly positive but I have heard more than a few people react in an indifferent manner. I wondered what made them react this way. Just to be clear, in my opinion, Fallout is easily one of the best action films to have come out in the recent past.
In the numerous coming-of-age films that have come out, there are very few films that have managed to find a balance between the fun element and the slightly darker themes present in this kind of a story. In Risky Business, director Paul Brickman is able to find that balance.
