    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.

    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 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. Expand

    This movie had so much potential especially with Eric Bana, Olivia Wilde and Kris Kristofferson starring in this movie.

    This movie was suprisingly pretty good. Some cheesy acting at moments but all in all pretty good. Somewhat like an old cohen bros movie. Entertaining at the least. Olivia is strange but hot. Def worth the rent.

    "Deadfall" 10 Scale Rating: 4.5 (Mediocre) ...

    The Good: Great cast that doesn't disappoint. I'm a little surprised that I didn't hear more about a film starring Eric Bana, Olivia Wilde, Kris Kristofferson, and Sissy Spacek. The film shows promise at times and the ending was mildly entertaining. The Bad: While it does indeed show glimpses of promise, ultimately there is nothing new

    The Bad: While it does indeed show glimpses of promise, ultimately there is nothing new here. Pretty straight forward and at times tedious, it feels like a direct to DVD release.

    Despite a super-dark noir plot and respectable cast, Deadfall is a thriller that never quite delivers on its promise.

    Bana ("Munich") makes an effective bad guy. Hunnam portrays Jay as a hero worth rooting for. And Wilde turns in a nuanced performance as a woman in conflict with herself.

    It's a tight, taut, expertly crafted thriller from a director to watch.
