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.

This 2012 crime drama opens to a winter landscape and a voiceover narration as three casino robbers have a freak car accident, killing one of them After killing a passing cop, Addison (Eric Bana) and his sister Liza (Olivia Wilde) split up to make their separate escapes, hoping to meet up later. Will either succeed in making an on foot get away in the blizzard conditions, and how many will die in the attempt to track the pair down?
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.

By Rowena Hoseason HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 1 Jan. 2014
Format: DVD
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.

Neat little thriller but no twists or turns, its just a simple story of two siblings on the run which comes to an inevitable and almost obvious conclusion. Even though the story is very predictable, the scenes are well paced and action scenes are exciting and well choreographed. The performances are all top-form from the excellent cast which includes Kris Kristopherson, Sissy Spacek, Eric Bana and the lovely Olivia Wilde. This would've got 3 stars from me because its nothing memorable and is predictable in terms of being a thriller, however it just scrapes in at 4 stars because of the excellent performances and great cinematic direction.
