You can't help thinking how good the Coen brothers' Fargo was in comparison.
May 9, 2013
What an accurate title.
May 9, 2013
Low grade, unremarkable and - worst of all - unnecessarily violent.
May 8, 2013
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.
December 21, 2012
Despite a super-dark noir plot and respectable cast, "Deadfall" is a thriller that never quite delivers on its promise.
December 14, 2012
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.
December 13, 2012
It's sort of like "Fargo," only with a higher body count and without the wood chipper.
December 13, 2012
Deadfall is fast and fatalistic ...
December 7, 2012
This is the sort of movie best encountered accidentally and for free, caught on basic cable late at night.
December 7, 2012
There's nothing you haven't seen before - and better - in "Deadfall," which would seem to appeal mostly to fans of snowmobile chases.
December 7, 2012
Dean and Ruzowitzky want both inexorably tightening plot and keen psychology here, and they can't always have it both ways.
December 7, 2012
A genre characterized by often grisly violence, high style and a distinctly nihilistic outlook.
December 6, 2012
At times it is riveting stuff and at times ridiculous.
December 6, 2012
[An] atmospheric, suspenseful, snowbound crime thriller with a creepy, sexy undertow ...
December 6, 2012
"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.
December 6, 2012
Watching this violent potboiler is like observing a thief knock off a convenience store, then seeing him lock his keys in the car.
December 6, 2012
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.
December 6, 2012
[It has] enough plot contrivances and twisted, twinned destinies for any old movie, though not necessarily a good one.
December 6, 2012
Looks great but sacrifices much in its charge towards a final showdown that's been telegraphed from the early going.
