Deadfall (15)

Deadfall (15)

Crime, Drama, Thriller

A thriller that follows two siblings who decide to fend for themselves in the wake of a botched casino heist, and their unlikely reunion during another family's Thanksgiving celebration.

The critical consensus

A contrived wannabe Freudian noir.

**(*)(*)(*)Siobhan Synnot, The Scotsman, 05/05/2013

Olivia Wilde and Eric Bana fail to convince in a contrived and strenuously acted crime thriller.

**(*)(*)(*)Tim Robey, The Telegraph, 08/05/2013

Where The Counterfeiters was full of street-wise wit and bayonet-sharp characterisation, Ruzowitzky's latest is a thriller with an altogether emptier head. That said, the wintery noir setting and gifted cast offer substantial saving graces.

The snowbound setting might be the chilliest since Fargo, but the resemblance ends there.

**(*)(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 09/05/2013

A strong cast lends some weight to a workmanlike script with Charlie Hunnam impressing as Jay.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 10/05/2013

Grim displays of guilt and remorse are on show from all concerned, but the seriously glum expressions of a high-calibre cast can’t inject any meaning into such a contrived story.

**(*)(*)(*)Eddie Harrison, The List, 10/05/2013

The director of The Counterfeiters botches a crime thriller about siblings botching a robbery.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 09/05/2013

A strong cast makes up for thinnish characterisation.
