The gathering implausibility is dispelled by a nice ending twist.

Ingeniously constructed and propulsively paced.

Top Critic

Leanly scripted, directed for maximum tension, fast-moving and filled with a surprising amount of droll humor.

"Brotherhood" isn't badly acted or without some skillfully tense moments, but it doesn't have much in the way of entertainment value either.

Viewers get paddled into submission in this strident frat-house thriller.

...a passable thriller [that is] disappointingly uninvolving for the duration of its refreshingly brief running time.

Audience Reviews for Brotherhood

I thought it was pretty good. It was so damn fast though. The pacing was lightning quick. I barely knew any of the characters and already people were getting beat up and shot. None of the characters were developed at all. The action was nice, and it had its suspenseful moments. I would've liked the pacing to slow down though. The things that happened were so outrageously unbelievable, I needed some time to catch up. Fifty things were going on at the same time, it was hard to keep up.

Other than the craziness, it was a pretty decent film. It was really short though; I wasn't expecting that.

A very well done film that kind of went too far, I think. The problem with this movie is that most of the characters are incredibly stupid, and annoying to the point that I was actually getting tired of the whole thing after the first hour. A chain reaction of one terribly bad decision after another was the whole premise of this film. I wish that they would have cut out a couple of those bad decisions a little earlier than they did. Know when to call it quit guys. Geez!

Director: Will Canon

Summary: Adam Buckley, a young collegiate whose last night of pledging for a fraternity takes an ominous turn. When he's ordered to hold up a convenience store as part of his initiation, Adam complies, but after everything goes wrong, he must find the courage to help a friend.

My Thoughts: "A much better film then I had anticipated. This is a good example of how easily these types of pranks can go wrong and just how stupid they are. The movie is fast paced, which leaves no time to be bored. The movie keeps you in suspense to what will happen next. There are a few twists which keeps it more interesting. The hazing goes a little far in the film and of course it also happens in real life in these fraternity houses. But this film shows you just how bad it can get in just one night. Definitely worth seeing."
