Audience Reviews for Deadfall

This movie is boring and predictable because in the beginning they tell you what they are going to do and then they do it. Where's the suspense in that? I hated this movie.

Super Reviewer


Jewels, romance, jealously and very little action. I didn't think it was bad it all. Prehaps a bit slow for todays' crowds and yes, it was very predicable.
