Reviews for this film from our members:

  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: There’s the germ of a good idea in Dean’s screenplay, exploding the myth of the perfect American family within a Thanksgiving thriller, but the film blows suspension of disbelief by too many implausible acts and ill conceived dialogue.

  • Tony Dayoub @ Cinema Viewfinder
    • Excerpt: [Life of Pi’s] final revelation by the story’s unreliable narrator, a now adult Pi superbly interpreted by Irrfan Khan, darkens the preceding story considerably, delivering quite another film than what one initially expects.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: More than the Thanksgiving goose gets cooked in this less-than-thrilling crime caper.
  • Piers Marchant @ Sweet Smell of Success
    • Excerpt: Lots of snow. And blood. And blood on the snow.
  • Brent McKnight @ Beyond Hollywood
  • Marcio Sallem @ Em Cartaz [Portuguese]
  • Cole Smithey @ ColeSmithey.com
    • Excerpt: Your standard issue cold-weather crime thriller, “Deadfall” comes complete with gratuitous sex, a hot-pursuit chase sequence involving snowmobiles, and a merciless bad guy you can’t help but root for.
