Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Like all over-ambitious B-movies, this features solid performances by a mix of seasoned talent and promising young actors, all of whom deserve better."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"It's sort of like "Fargo," only with a higher body count and without the wood chipper."
‑ Soren Anderson, Seattle Times
"Serviceable if ultimately uneven, Deadfall is let down by inconsistent material and muddy character work. Still, at least the snowy location work looks good."
‑ Stephen Carty, Flix Capacitor
"With a script that exposes its own mechanics and contrivances with such reckless abandon, Deadfall simply can't be prevented from flatlining by the solid ensemble cast and luscious visual palette."
‑ Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy
"Resembles Fargo in its geography and atmosphere, but fatally lacks its sense of humour."
‑ Christopher Tookey, Daily Mail [UK]
"Despite a super-dark noir plot and respectable cast, "Deadfall" is a thriller that never quite delivers on its promise."
‑ Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle
"Deadfall is fast and fatalistic ..."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"A B-movie with an A-list cast, crime thriller Deadfall sets its plot in motion with some bracing shocks in its first few minutes."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"Deadfall might fancy itself as a 95-minute, wintry version of Bonnie and Clyde, but it's not in the same class with its high body count failing to justify the means, not least during the ludicrous climax."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"You can't help thinking how good the Coen brothers' Fargo was in comparison."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"Perhaps the best thing about "Deadfall" is the lifelike messiness of its ending. A couple of the characters have a lot of explaining to do, and this is one case where a sequel might be in order."
‑ Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"This is the sort of movie best encountered accidentally and for free, caught on basic cable late at night."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"A strong cast makes up for thinnish characterisation, and it's so like Fargo it might as well be called "Fargone"."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"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
"Big fleecy hats with earflaps are doffed to most of the actors. But, with this script, Deadfall was always destined to be a whiteout."
‑ Donald Clarke, Irish Times
