An amusingly caustic, straight-up serving of film noir staples spiced with star charisma.

As lifeless as a flat wine.

An engrossing thriller - and one sparkling with intelligence, with the surprising twists grounded in credible human behaviour.

A noir thriller about greed.

Rafelson shows that he can't handle noir themes as easily as the real masters of the genre.

When Bob Rafelson decides to get nasty, he really means it.

Bob Rafelson sends this movie out like a hissing flare from the island of the nearly-forgotten, and if justice had prevailed, moviegoers would have answered the call.

The director benefits from a powerhouse duo in Nicholson and Caine. It's like watching two cats fight for the same mouse, because both characters are corrupted to the bone.

Screenwriters Nick Villiers, Alison Cross, and Rafelson were trying too hard.

A slowly-plotted, mostly uninvolving modern-day Miami film noir...

Let's just say that Blood & Wine is a good idea badly executed.

To borrow a phrase from the Simpsons, it's just a bunch of stuff that happened.

Rafelson is so true to his sour vision of crime, deception and a rottenness at the core of our natures -- he's as cheerful as a Jim Thompson potboiler -- that we never get a chance to like or care about his characters.

Internet Reviews

The film takes several surprising turns and evolves into a decent thriller. Still, the script by Alison Cross and Nick Villiers too often gets mired in its own material.

Blood and Wine is a murky attempt at film noir that has a couple of good twists, but overall it wastes its talent.

Nicholson is good, but the movie isn't.

Blood & Wine is rewarding for its performances and the material it explores, but ultimately it's messy.

Bob Rafelson uses the themes of greed, lust and betrayal coupled with riveting ingredients to bring an emotionally satisfying, biting thriller.

This was a good role for Nicholson and a better one for Caine.
