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.
Deadfall is fast and fatalistic ...
This is the sort of movie best encountered accidentally and for free, caught on basic cable late at night.
This is a gruesome film, though it is lightened by the force of its talent.
As thrillers go, this is clumsy, cliche-ridden old stuff.
If the destination proves less intriguing than its various journeys promise, it's still the kind of craftily assembled, generally watchable B-movie that might merit a gamble.
If you want a chilly, suspenseful thriller, watch Transsiberian, which co-stars the completely-wasted-here Kata Mara.
A B-movie with an A-list cast, crime thriller Deadfall sets its plot in motion with some bracing shocks in its first few minutes.
A strong cast makes up for thinnish characterisation, and it's so like Fargo it might as well be called "Fargone".
Despite moments of impressive cinematography, this film is as bland and uninteresting as the snowy wasteland it's set in. Despite what should be a strong cast, the actors are not utilized to their potential and the whole experience is rather hum-drum. The film's decent, but not particularly interesting in any significant way. I wish I could wait for the spring thaw to see if any life might have sprouted in Kristofferson's salty patriarch character, but alas, I doubt any of us would make it that long.
Deadfall was so good. I really enjoyed this thriller. I loved how messed up Liza and Addison were. So damaged and insane yet sane all in one. A crazy combination that made them such interesting characters.
The movie had a great cast. The legends Ms. Sissy Spacek and Mr. Kris Kristofferson turned in good performances. I love Spacek. She has always been a favorite of mine since her Carrie days. The woman can play any role.
Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde did great jobs too. I went from liking Addison to hating him then to being kinda grossed out by him. He is a very messed up individual.
Charlie, Charlie. How I love me some Charlie. Jay is an ex-boxer who just got out of prison and is on his way home for Thanksgiving when he comes upon Liza. They get stuck together for a night and things escalate from there.
I really liked Kate Mara as Hanna. She was sweet and didn't let the bullies in her department get her down. Her dad was a complete asshole and I couldn't stand him. I felt bad for her.
The film is a bit twisted when it comes to Addison and Liza. I enjoyed the story. I'd watch it again.
A hard-boiled cocktail of a film noir. An exceptional piece of work. An sexy, atmospheric, suspenseful and riveting crime-thriller. It has the type of style and backdrop of a Elmore Lenard novel and the dark edginess of a Coen Brothers film. A well-characterized genre piece that delves deep into it's darkness and brings you on an intense and thrilling ride. Director, Stefan Ruzowitzky crafts a film that's alive, it's engaging, brutal, tense and undeniably entertaining. A dark and compelling classic. A bold and explosive edge of your seat thriller. It's has an impressive all-star cast and is packed with cold intensity, surprising emotional depth, great character development and vivid action all the way to it's chilling and exhilarating conclusion. Eric Bana gives a stellar and tremendous performance, he is a near perfect and brilliant villain. Charlie Hunnam and Olivia Wilde give compelling and stunning performances. Kate Mara is excellent. Treat Williams is terrific. Kris Kristofferson and Sissy Spacek are fantastic.
