Deadfall (2012)

Deadfall (2012)
Directed by: Stefan Ruzowitzky
Country: USA

Summary: A thriller that follows two siblings who decide to fend for themselves in the wake of a botched casino heist.
Review: From the director of  “The Counterfeiters”, awarded by the Academy as best foreign language film of 2007, now arrives “Deadfall”, a thriller with some tension but with a poor plot. Actually there are some unexplored subplots and characters within the film, making this a movie with only one goal: to kill the “bad guy”. After that, we keep questioning what happened to the other characters. Too many answers are left aside in a movie with good action scenes but lacking brain. I see it as a predictable and inconclusive story. Not recommended.
