Laughably bad—but at least you're laughing.

  • The weather (and the acting) outside is frightful in Deadfall

Deadfall is at heart a B-movie, disguised in the garb of a more A-list cast. It’s hard to summarize the mess of events that tries to pass as a plot: a pair of outlaw siblings from Alabama, Liza (Olivia Wilde) and Addison (Eric Bana), get in a bad car crash after a heist and split off to try to escape the law, the former finding romance with a boxer and ex-con (Charlie Hunnam) and the latter going on a murderous rampage. A slew of other characters are thrown into the mix, and everything rambles along nonsensically without really being resolved—the story is riddled with continuity problems. The dialogue and acting is on par with the rest of the movie: it’s so bad that, mostly, all you can do is laugh.
