  • Rudy Duncan (Ben Affleck) is a small-time car thief about to be released from jail in time for Christmas. When his cellmate, Nick, is suddenly killed, Rudy decides to take on his identity in order to meet Nick's beautiful pen-pal girlfriend, Ashley (Charlize Theron). The couple has fun until her psychotic brother, Gabriel (Gary Sinise), shows up. Gabriel and his gang want to hold up a casino where Nick had once worked, and they blackmail Rudy/Nick into going along with the scheme. Rudy has to bluff his way through the crime, pretending to be Nick in order to avoid being killed while trying to sabotage the plans of the bad guys. Will Rudy be able to outsmart the bad guys, or will he end up facedown in the snow?

    Double crosses abound in this frosty film noir action movie boasting a twisty script by writer Ehren Kruger (SCREAM 3, ARLINGTON ROAD) and assured direction by veteran John Frankenheimer (THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, RONIN), plus a sneaky sense of humor and plenty of Christmas references.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...A knockout of a surprise ending....Frankenheimer keeps the picture racing along..."
    Movieline's Hollywood Life

    "...Breathlessly paced..."

    "...Mr. Frankenheimer has an entertaining bent for swift, scary violence with 1960's cracks and reverbs on the soundtrack for an old school reference point....The vividness of the expert cast makes the movie feel lived-in..."
    New York Times

    "...Frankenheimer is the siege engine that keeps the REINDEER action flying on all cylinders..."
    Rolling Stone

    "...Affleck is a likeable lead..."
