Deadfall 2012

     Addison and Liza are sibling casino robbers in Mount Pleasant, Michigan.  They make a dash for the Canadian border until they hit a deer on the road.  The rollover crash on the icy road totals the car and kills their getaway driver.  A policeman comes across the scene and phones for help but Addison kills him.  The pair set off into the snow covered woods, Addison tells Liza they need to separate and meet up again at the border.  Jay who is on his way to his parent’s home after his release from prison picks up Liza along the road.  She phones Addison and gives him the address so he can meet her there since the home is on the Canadian border.
     OK, you are wearing very light clothes and you are out in the snow, no problem, you won’t freeze to death or anything?  You’ll be all toasty and warm!!  Another good idea is to kill everyone crossing your path!!  Was this screenplay written using a dartboard?  Let’s choose this ridiculous scene and then add this other scene that is more ridiculous!!  2 1/2* (This movie is so-so)
95 min, Crime directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky with Eric Bana, Olivia Wilde, Charlie Hunnam, Patrick Kerton, Kwasi Sonqui, Kris Kristofferson, Sissy Spacek, Treat Williams, John Robinson, Job Daniel, Jacelyne Zucco.
