    Among the most unhinged performances of Cage's career, it must be a Coppola film—how else does a film this incompetent get a cast this misused?

    Brilliant actors, a remake of an interesting film-noir, are laid to waste in one of the stupidest, most inept examples of filmmaking in the 90’s. While good filmmaking runs in the Coppola family, it must have skipped Christopher’s genes, as this is some of the worst directing ever. It’s unknown if Nic Cage was playing a prank on his brother or vice versa - but thank god for Cage, as his absolutely insane, balls to the wall performance gives the film a permanent place in camp film history. The script, while hinting at a neat father/son relationship, makes every wrong turn possible - coupled with dumb, unnecessary voice over makes the film frustratingly dull. It also has one of the worst endings ever - building into a big explanatory crescendo and then letting credits roll the second things get interesting. Worth it for Cage completists, but only for his minimal time on screen.

    Really hard to sit through. Nic Cage is the only redeeming quality.

    Il n'y a qu'une seule qualité dans Deadfall : Nicolas Cage. Sur sa petite demi-heure, l'acteur fait absolument n'importe quoi pour le plus grand bonheur de ses fans, devant la caméra de son frère. Il est outrancier, insupportable et absolument fabuleux. Le reste de Deadfall est un film noir 90's complètement raté, aussi ennuyeux qu'extrêmement mal fichu, entre une intrigue qui va n'importe où et dénuée de toute logique pendant qu'une bonne demi-douzaine de scènes vont nulle part, alors que les acteurs non prénommés Nicolas ont décidé de lire leurs textes sans aucune intensité ni émotion. C'est dommage car c'est l'essence même du film noir. Deadfall est un bien mauvais film, aussi mal réalisé que mal écrit.

    Enjoyable until Nicolas Cage gets the axe. He was the only reason why the film was enjoyable.

    There are 2 parts to this film. The main story and Nicolas Cage, the second saves it.

    This is why I watch Nic Cage movies. I turned it off as soon as Cage left, though.
