Blood (2013)



Critic Consensus: While well-acted and skillfully directed, Blood never quite manages to draw its themes and characters into a coherent, compelling whole.

Movie Info

The Fairburn brothers (Paul Bettany and Stephen Graham) are detectives who have lived under the shadow of their police chief father (Brian Cox) - a man known for doing whatever it takes to get a confession. When the brothers take an interrogation too far, they raise the suspicions of their colleague (Mark Strong) and suddenly find themselves having to cover up their own crimes.

The landscape cinematography is often eye-pleasing, but the script is labored, filled with clichés and never allows for character development.

Top Critic

While hardly reinventing the wheel, "Blood" works best as a tone poem, with unspoken passages detailing a hard life.

"Blood" feels perfunctory, needing something besides fussy plotting to jolt it to life.
