Director: Stefan Ruzowitzky
Stars: Eric Bana, Charlie Hunnam, Olivia Wilde, Kris Kristofferson, Sissy Spacek, Kate Mara, Treat Williams
Sometimes, all it takes to catch our interest is a simple, pulpy bit of crime fiction. Such is the deal with Deadfall, a cold weather thriller about a heist-pulling brother and sister (Eric Bana and hottie deluxe Olivia Wilde) traveling around with a bag stuffed with greenbacks, and a newly paroled boxer (Sons of Anarchy’s Charlie Hunnam) who unintentionally injects himself into their illegal exploits.
A quick glance at the official synopsis’ promise of “a shocking climax” leads us to believe that Deadfall, directed by Austrian filmmaker Stefan Ruzowitzky, won’t end with Hunnam joining them for happy-go-lucky robberies as Wilde’s new boy toy. Expect blood, corpses, and other tragic plot points—in other words, the shit that makes us smile. Yes, we have issues.
