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.

Deadfall follows sibling robbers Addison (Bana) & Liza (Wilde), who we meet in they're car after a supposed robbery that we never see, and are on the run to the Canadian boarder. However disaster strikes as they crash the car in the frozen back roads & they're driver is killed. They decide to split up & divide the cash, and plan to meet near the boarder. However, they're paths are both fraught & varied , with Addison's violent approach upon those he meets & Liza's white Knight, Jay (Hunnam), hitchhiker love story, as the siblings paths cross once again to a great crescendo.

Overall, Deadfall is a nice combination of thriller & drama, with all the key characters being more than one dimensional. We get a decent insight into each of them, and can understand they're motivations & sympathize with them to varied extents. The few action set pieces aren't loud or gaudy, but done effectively with a subtle hand at the rudder in the shape of director Stefan Ruzowitzky (The Counterfeiters), whose use of cinematography on the picturesque yet cold harsh setting was great. The characters & interactions are interesting & unpredictable in places, as we follow them through to an inevitable showdown. The downsides to the film, were the unnecessary long focus on unimportant scenes & encompassing all the characters stories which did make the film hang in the odd place. It was predictable after a certain point to see where the story was all heading, while the characters & story do feel somewhat familiar or cliche, it's done better than iv'e seen in most cases. The falling snow did look a bit fake didn't it ?

Deadfall works on several levels. You can watch it as a straightforward action-thriller, or get entangled in the mind-games and psychodrama of the sub-plots. For a fairly low-key release it aims high, blending out-of-the-blue instances of brutal intensity with emotionally mature and deftly intertwined character arcs. The ensemble cast generate some truly tense and memorable moments - not least Eric Bana, as the seductive psychopath du jour, but also from Sissy Spacek as the grace-under-pressure all American hostage-mom, and Kate Mara who plays Hannah, a local police officer, battling institutional chauvinism on a monumental scale.

At first glance, Deadfall looks like a straightforward heist-gone-wrong, guys-on-the-run movie, but underneath it's an examination of the fraught emotional ties between families, many of those relationships unhealthily intense. The plot follows a strange pair of siblings, brother and sister, on the run with the loot from a casino robbery. Almost instantly the violence escalates and they're thrown into a series of situations (violent / sensual: sometimes both at the same time), while trying to escape across the Canadian border.
The characters fight, form alliances and fracture against each other in a mid-winter wilderness, cut off by blizzards, forced to confront their earlier lives and emotional angst over the Thanksgiving holiday. And, helpfully, there's a gentlemanly-mannered lunatic on the loose who is as likely to take tea as he is to hack off a limb. Much of the delight in this film comes from his sheer unpredictability, but Deadfall is much more than just a star vehicle for Bana's acting talent.
The photography throughout is superb; capturing the majesty, isolation and underlying menace of the isolated landscape.
