The Fall Guy Movie Review

I’ve been a fan of the 80s series The Fall Guy since I was a teenager.

So, I was excited to find out that a movie adaptation was being made of it.

The movie stars Ryan Gosling as Colt Seavers (played by Lee Majors on the series), a stuntman who has a bad injury and is away from doing stunts for awhile. 

He one day gets a call from a producer he’s worked for before to do stunts for a movie directed by his former girlfriend Jody (Emily Blunt). 

There’s tension at first but ultimately, the ice melts and they end up getting back together. 

But, during all of this, Colt ends up trying to find the star of this movie he’s doubling for, and let’s just say that craziness ensues.

I really love this movie.  It’s a lot of fun.  You don’t have to know anything about the series to enjoy it, although I hope this movie puts a new spotlight on the series (and Lee Majors and series co-star Heather Thomas have fun cameos at the end playing their original characters).  

This is just a fun, exciting, popcorn movie.

Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt are great, as are all the cast (Jason Momoa even has a fun cameo near the end too.).

Go see it and have fun.  I certainly did.
