[first lines]
Addison: What would home look like? I don't know. A farmhouse in the valley, I guess, like the one we grew up in, Liza and I. I remember hiding in the Orchard at night, looking down at the lighted windows, and waiting for our daddy to fall asleep just so we could go back inside. Do you remember that, Liza? Hmm, do you remember that?
Liza: [nodding smile]

Make-Believe Story With Even Ridiculous Plot. ♦ 45%
2 July 2013 | by (Mumbai, India) – See all my reviews

A brother-sister pair are on the run after looting a casino. They suddenly start searching for the purpose of life and everything/everyone seems to fall in a single place. This, on-screen, looks so ridiculous, you get a feeling, was all this made up? And to aggravate your temper, the sister falls in love with a nomad in a matter of minutes.

Yes, indeed. To give the plot a perfect & predictable ending, the whole setup was made-believe. Cast performance is good but I am disappointed with Eric Bana for his lousiness. Olivia Wilde looks hot & does her part very well. Although the characters seem half-baked. Direction & cinematography is average, with the locations not harnessed to their extremities. It thrills a lot, but a foolish storyline is on the prophesy.

Lots of violence, gore, gun-shots & deaths play spoilsport with the already wrecked plot. Nothing new to decipher, Deadfall falls on itself and kills. 4.5/10.

BOTTOM LINE: Not recommended. If you are a fan, go ahead & get disappointed.

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? NO

Profanity: Strong | Sex/Foreplay/Mouth-Kiss: Very Strong | Violence/Gore: Very Critical | Smoking: Mild | Alcohol: Mild | Drugs: No
