Like all over-ambitious B-movies, this features solid performances by a mix of seasoned talent and promising young actors, all of whom deserve better.

Despite a super-dark noir plot and respectable cast, "Deadfall" is a thriller that never quite delivers on its promise.

Perhaps the best thing about "Deadfall" is the lifelike messiness of its ending. A couple of the characters have a lot of explaining to do, and this is one case where a sequel might be in order.

It's sort of like "Fargo," only with a higher body count and without the wood chipper.

This is the sort of movie best encountered accidentally and for free, caught on basic cable late at night.

There's nothing you haven't seen before - and better - in "Deadfall," which would seem to appeal mostly to fans of snowmobile chases.

Dean and Ruzowitzky want both inexorably tightening plot and keen psychology here, and they can't always have it both ways.

A genre characterized by often grisly violence, high style and a distinctly nihilistic outlook.

"Deadfall" brings to mind those dark, old-fashioned entertainments in rotation on Turner Classic Movies that suck you in with their genre machinery, sullen beauties and despair.

Watching this violent potboiler is like observing a thief knock off a convenience store, then seeing him lock his keys in the car.

An A-list cast fights a B-movie script and goes down hard in "Deadfall," a wintry suspense melodrama that's not quite awful enough to be any fun.

For Ruzowitzky, Deadfall seems nothing more than work for hire.

[It has] enough plot contrivances and twisted, twinned destinies for any old movie, though not necessarily a good one.

Looks great but sacrifices much in its charge towards a final showdown that's been telegraphed from the early going.

'Deadfall' deftly transforms the climactic moments ... therapeutic for some, devastating for others. It's a beautiful thing.

Bana and Wilde sport bad Southern accents and deliver overly mannered dialogue while dropping hints about their abusive childhood.

The camera work is as beautiful as it is terrifying, with Quebec standing in for northern Michigan in the dead of winter. And the performances are resourceful, superbly etched and expertly nuanced.

Ruzowitzky may be an occasionally interesting visual stylist, but storytelling-wise, his second English-language effort couldn't be more stillborn.

The most disappointing aspect of Deadfall is its conventionality. For a thriller, it's light on surprises.
