Deadfall -- Film Review

Release Date: December 5,2012
Starring: Eric Bana, Olivia Wilde, Kate Mara, Sissy Spacek, Charlie Hunham
Directed by: Stefan Ruzowitzky

Deadfall is actually a decent entertainment, from the great begining until the very end it somehow prosuces great action scenes and chasing scenes, and thank the winter for a great athmosphere and a great setting to be filled with, The cast we're so amazing in so many kinds very thoughtful and exhilirating.

Siblings Addison and Liza are on the run from a casino heist gone wrong. 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. While Addison heads cross-country, creating mayhem in his wake, Liza is picked up by ex-boxer Jay, en-route for a Thanksgiving homecoming with his parents, June and retired sheriff Chet. It’s there the siblings are reunited in a terse and thrilling showdown that pushes the bonds of family to the limit.

You know what really works here?, its the beautiful cast, Hunham and Wilde actully is great on-screen couple they have a really nice spark and a suprising chemistry between them, Its this time when you root for the antagoniat instead of the protagonist Bana's performance was really great this is actually hia follow up movie in 2011'a Hanna which was really great and Saoirse Ronan had done a gorgeous portrayal of an action star.

A near miss, but there is just barely enough good stuff to outweight the mediocre stuffs happening,  It helps the cast so earnest and appealing, and the story moves at fast pace, the story itself is mildy involving, A pleasant suprise with good performances by the leads with parts of 'Fargo', 'A Simple Plan', and 'Lookout' meshed together.

Slick and compact action movie, 'Deadfall' is one of those underrated movie this year but them this was a tremendous movie, you really never quite how connected some people are and when its time to set someone free yet an equal balance of violence and humuor as well as wintry landscape, blizzard add character to this twisty violent caper despite somehow a tiresome plot and thin script.

Film Revies and News Rates this a 4/5
