Customer Reviews

Eric Bana played the bad guy and he did a great job.
DrD
This is not a bad movie, the plot got a little slow for me at times and there are a couple of things left in the air at the end of the movie.
Krzysztof Korycinski
With quick and jarring zooms that aren't used at any other point in the film, its a moment that takes you right out of the story.

4 1/2 STARS FOR A FANTASTIC THRILLER WITH REALISTIC ACTION AND BROKEN PEOPLE. Few characters in this movie are perfect, if any.

I was really impressed by this gem of a movie and had a hunch it was done on a limited budget, despite the quality and effort clearly put into it. So I did some research. It was shot on $12M. That seemed like a fair sum to me at first (though not huge obviously) so I was a little surprised. Then I thought again - Many stars in this film have probably commanded $12M on their own for just one picture. Clearly this was a labor of love by people who thought it should be made.

Seriously- Olivia Wilde - Kate Mara - Eric Bana - Sissy Spacek - Kris Kristofferson and others.

PLOT: A brother and sister (from a broken home in the south we learn) have just robbed an Indian Casino not far from the Canadian border. The movie opens after the event of the robbery as the fugitives travel down an icy rural highway in the dead of winter. They are trying to evade the law. Their car skids and crashes and their plight becomes a matter of survival, both for them and the people they encounter (the brother is a cold blooded killer). But that's just the beginning. It becomes apparent that something is seriously off with these two who are a little more than just brother and sister. Yeah, it's twisted. Several other families will become ensnared their troubles including a disgraced boxer and a local police cheif who's daughter struggles for his approval. For an action thriller, there are ALL KINDS of relationship dysfunction and depth of character. In lesser hands, this movie is the kind of thing that results in a complete cinematic disaster.

Hardcore movie fan, especially Thriller/Mystery/Suspense/Horror-> I really enjoyed this movie. Unique story line that all weaves together in the end. Some amazing Graphics Scenes. The actor's chosen were great for their roles. Some gore...more shocking not scary. Definitely not a watch with children..intense sex scenes and believable "shocker scenes" (don't want to spoil it) I rated this 5 stars and would watch again. Don't miss if you want to watch something with great acting, unique twists, suspense, and just enough romance.

This film has action, violence, sex, and not a few stories about dysfunctional families. The script writing is fine, the actors are terrific and I loved seeing some old timers like Sissy Spacek and Kris Kristofferson. I think the cold desolate Canadian filming locations certainly add to the overall feel of the film and definitely play background to the cold hearted killer's mentality. I could have done without the sex scenes, (we certainly didn't need them back in the day when Noir was gorgeously done.)and the love story was weak, but the overall subject of the film - don't treat your kids bad or they may turn out twisted - does work. There is a wonderful climactic ending - for once (in awhile) Hollywood gets it right. In a weird aside, I wonder what the film would have been like if Bana and Hunnam had reversed their roles AND if the film was shot in black and white. BTW, Bana was very good.

Deadfall was a film that I thought I might enjoy but instead fell in love with.
The ensemble cast is the main attraction along with the acting and chemistry between all of the main characters plus it is beautifully shot and thought out.it has it all. Love,action, blood,tested loyalties and much more.

I will be buying this because I will most certainly watch it again and again.There are so many moments that resonated joy and pain for me ,it humanizes the villain played to perfection by Eric Bana by showing that he has a heart when he wants to but on the other hand is sociopathic if anyone gets in the way of what he needs at the moment.

Charlie Hunnam is amazing as the ex con who also won a silver medal in Boxing at the Beijing Olympics. He and Olivia Wilde have hot chemistry together and this is part of why the film works so well.The love scenes are tastefully done but really hot.There are several relationships such as Father /Daughter.Father/Son.Brother/Sister and a Man and a Woman being explored during the film and some irony that goes along with it at the end.

I can't say enough good things about this film except in closing I would mention Sissy Spacek who is always a wonderful Academy Award winning actress.

Format: DVD
A strong cast elevates DEADFALL, a crafty film-noirish tale of greed and familial dysfunction. An often contrived plot involves fugitives running from a botched casino heist; an ex-boxer released from prison after serving time for throwing a fight; and a female deputy who suffers constant belittlement from her sheriff father. It takes time to discern how these stories will intertwine and result in a tragic confrontation.
The blizzard backdrop heightens the movie's chill factor, but it's the actors who provide the film's foundation. Eric Bana gives a chilling portrayal as the cold-blooded killer who still manages to elicit a guarded level of empathy. Talented Olivia Wilde is both seductive and fragile as Liza, Bana's victimized sister. SONS OF ANARCHY's Charlie Hunnam is the boxer Jay and gives a solid performance. The roles of the parents are filled by veteran actors Sissy Spacek (who is wonderful), Kris Kristofferson and Treat Williams.
Despite its flaws, I recommend DEADFALL especially for viewers who like their thrillers with a little complexity.
