Deadfall

Tough weather ahead...

With an eye-catching international cast, the talented Stefan Ruzowitzky (The Counterfeiters) at the helm, and frissons of incest and ultra-violence, this wintry thriller starts out intriguing but doesn’t quite go the distance.

As a snowstorm ravages the Canadian borderlands, siblings-on-the-run Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde cross paths with boxer-on-the-run Charlie Hunnam with surprising, if convoluted, results.

There’s an exciting skidoo chase and Hunnam warming up (ahem) for Fifty Shades.

You wonder how the disparate plot lines are all going to converge. The short answer is: stupidly.
