Deadfall by Stefan Ruzowitzky, 2012 (R)

with Eric Bana (Hanna), Olivia Wilde (The Words, The Next Three Days, Tron: Legacy), Charlie Hunnam, Sissy Spacek (The Help), Kris Kristofferson, Jason Cavalier, Alain Goulem, Allison Graham, Kate Mara (127 hours, House of Cards), Treat Williams (127 Hours, Hollywood Ending, Hair)

On the run after a casino heist, siblings Addison and Liza split up. When Liza gets a ride from a prison parolee heading to his parents' home for Thanksgiving, unexpected events lead the two families toward a collision in this suspenseful thriller.

There are movies you don't really feel like watching, perhaps because they give you the impression that you already saw it, or that it doesn't look too good. This was the case of Deadfall, with an Eric Bana that reminded me of his performance Hanna, and the rest of it feeling too unreal. There is a lot of stereotypes and madness in this movie, the characters are rough and cold, the climax is at the same time predictable and not interesting, the drama rises and falls flat. The perhaps only interesting point of the movie is the lack of justice and the randomness of death that makes it completely anti-commercial.
