Time - Richard Corliss Dec 6, Deadfall, though, is a thing of pieces: splendidly efficient in its action sequences car crash, knife fight, snowmobile chase , dawdling in dialogue scenes that should smolder with tension.
The A. Club - Noel Murray Dec 5, The best parts of Deadfall are absorbed into a scenario that frequently ditches the cat-and-mouse routine and tries instead to be about three dysfunctional families working toward reconciliation. There's nothing you haven't seen before - and better - in Deadfall, which would seem to appeal mostly to fans of snowmobile chases.
Boxoffice Magazine - Nick Schager Nov 28, A crime saga cobbled together from scraps of genre predecessors, Deadfall's unbelievable silliness escalates at every turn. User Score. Write a Review. User Reviews. I really enjoyed this movie and if you like a good thriller, you'll like this one too. It deserves better than the critics' reviews. The acting is very good and the action is very good too.

There is the mystery of the cause of the "accident". Hana delivers an evil,devil may care performance.
There is an odd relationship between Wilde and himself,which is only hinted at,casting a darker noir aspect. A predictable ending,with a twist,was ultimately satisfying. Atmosphere made the film. I enjoyed it,somewhat surprisingly. Surprise movie! Surprising for the cast involved-impressive. Surprising for the rapid pace.
Grief is a major force behind each story. When a car accident leaves their wheel man and a state trooper dead, they split up and make a run for the Canadian border in the worst of circumstances — a near whiteout blizzard. I am a huge Batman fan. Retrieved February 4, But also touch, taste, smell, through the cleverly written descriptions.
Surprising for most of the photography. Surprising for the "believability" of the characters.
The glitches or shortfalls included: 1 The near-incestuous relationship was a bit underplayed at Surprise movie! The glitches or shortfalls included: 1 The near-incestuous relationship was a bit underplayed at the outset; the ability to walk through a near-blizzard in street clothes seems far-fetched from my experience; the relationship between Treat Williams and Kate Mara seemed a bit off, somehow. I liked that the confluence of sub-plots, while stretching credibility a bit, was not too far removed from what could be realistic.
Eric Bana was "delightful" as a truly evil person.
All other major characters, Ms Wilde, Mr. Hunam, Ms. Spacek and Mr. Kristofferson, allowed the viewer to suspend disbelief and accept the role they played. I enjoyed the movie. This movie had so much potential especially with Eric Bana, Olivia Wilde and Kris Kristofferson starring in this movie.
This movie was well acted and the plot was okay but the ending could have been better. However the special effects were pretty good.

The good thing about this movie was that you never knew what was going to happen next. It was good until the ending but it was still enjoyable and worth watching nonetheless.
A car crash, four deaths and a finger sliced off and that's all in the first 20 minutes. Deadfall is certainly not without incident. However, after the first half an hour it all starts to get a little dull despite all the action. It's only when the drama moves into the home of Kristofferson A car crash, four deaths and a finger sliced off and that's all in the first 20 minutes.
It's only when the drama moves into the home of Kristofferson and Spacek that some real tension and emotion is able to spring forth. For the rest of the time the film feels disjointed and lacks any real rhythm. Performances are decent, despite some stilted dialogue, and the snowbound scenario is also good value.
On the whole, though, this is just like your average B movie. DCEdmonds Nov 13, The Good: Great cast that doesn't disappoint. He give some great, thoughtful answers. It my privilege to present to you Bob's third book, Deadfall. Robert Liparulo.
