Thank you for reviewing Deadfall, Joel. I got an itch to rent a movie while getting ready to leave my office at DISH yesterday afternoon. I went online, and rented Deadfall, and I had it downloading to my DISH Hopper DVR before leaving for the day; it was ready to watch before I even walked in my door at home. I agree that there were some great actors in this film, and I also agree that they couldn’t do anything to save this movie. It starts well, but goes nowhere quickly.

Bana alone makes this more than a 3 star movie. The acting is excellent, all around. At time when we are being presented with blockbusters, this flick guarantees a great ride. This is a sleeper. Don't let it get away.
