Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde star in this crime thriller about two siblings who go on the run after a botched heist. After robbing a casino in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, Addison (Bana) and his younger sister Liza (Wilde) are speeding towards the Canadian border when their car crashes in the icy weather. As they attempt to escape from the scene, a passing policeman approaches them and Addison shoots him. Dividing the loot between them, the siblings split up and plan to meet again later. While standing alone on the roadside, Liza encounters ex-boxer Jay (Charlie Hunnam), who has also had a run-in with the law, and he takes her to his mother June (Sissy Spacek) and father Chet (Kris Kristofferson)'s house. Meanwhile, having been contacted by Liza, Addison has already arrived at their house and has taken Jay's parents hostage. With Liza falling for Jay and the police closing in on her and brother, tensions rise and Addison's behaviour becomes increasingly dangerous...

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.Read more ›
The bleak blizzard landscape looks breath-taking but soon reveals how menacing it can be as the manhunt takes hold. This is fast paced, and although some of the plotlines are rather obvious, mainly involving the sheriffs daughter and deputy Hannah (Kate Mara), it is done in an entertaining manner and she does a great job with her weak role.
The single disc loads to main menu offering play, scene selection, languages [basically English, audio descriptive or deaf] and special features [2 featurettes, 3 short actor interviews].
With suggested overtones of incest, some swearing, sex and graphic deaths it’s hardly surprising this is a 15 rating. Considering this was filmed on a relatively modest budget, it fights well above it weight, is never dull, is well acted and is overall a decent enough thriller/drama for a late evening 15 and over view. Given all these factors, it deserves more than ****, so gets a 5 from me.
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.Read more ›

Great opening scene which pulls you right in. Interesting characters and relationship dynamics delivered by a very able cast and all wrapped up in an atmospheric mise en scene. Read morePublished 2 months ago by The Lonely Scribe
A review is someone's opinion on what they thought of the film. NOT the whole plot, how much it cost to make, who was in it or who was doing what to whom. Good film though.Published 3 months ago by Bogie
This film has a lot more 'layers' to it than the write up might suggest. I wasn't expecting too much from it but it really surprised me - highly recommendedPublished 5 months ago by Stormchaser86
