The Brothers Bloom Reviews

Jeff Beck

It pulls the perfect con, which Ruffalo's character defines as a con where everyone gets what they want. The audience gets exactly what they want: A wild ride with an ending they won't see coming.

The Brothers Bloom is quirky and clever. Set in the present but with a perfectly judged retro feel, it looks fabulous too. Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi almost steals the film with her deadpan presence as Bang Bang, the gang's explosives expert.

Brick made for a natural intro to the more complicated, less laboriously arch observations of The Brothers Bloom.

Rian Johnson injects punchy, off-kilter fantastical charm into his playfully globetrotting film. It's like a cuckoo clock - precise, ornate and screwy-looking. But Bloom and Penelope's love - and resultant rifts - comes off as real-world collateral.

Sure, The Brothers Bloom may be the headline act, but it is the sisters eccentric that make the film.

The Brothers Bloom is inventive, but its relentless cleverness limits its emotional pull.

This is London

We feel regularly discombobulated on the sea of this movie's ideas - which is a good thing for people feeling marooned by the general stupidity of this summer's film releases.

If Wes Anderson and Terry Gilliam ever had a child, science would be amazed and appalled. But also, it would probably end up making a film like this.

The eccentric humour is an acquired taste and the contrived story overstays its welcome.

June 7, 2010

Johnson's script and directing style suffocates the duo with too many cookie-cutter indie movie quirks, making it all too easy to spot the joins and lose interest...

David Edwards
Daily Mirror [UK]

It's one of those films whose fun set-up is terrific, only to be offset by the muddled plot. Still, there are some decent laughs amid the mess.

Sharp, funny and stylish, but still, something doesn't quite fit...

The effect is something like Dirty Rotten Scoundrels done by Wes Anderson in a morose mood, much as its creator would presumably resist the latter comparison.

Like his brooding anti-hero, Johnson keeps one step ahead and, at the same time, wears his heart on his sleeve. It's tough not to fall for such charm.

It lags a touch towards the end and it's ultra quirky, but the artifice doesn't rob the finale of emotion. In fact, it delivers unexpected rewards.

Perhaps you can be too cool for school and too clever for a multiplex, but if you're willing to go along with this, you'll enjoy being fooled so much that you won't mind it's all a trick.

It's a charming fantasy of a con movie that is less interested in the well played con than the colorfully executed idea of a con, among other things.

Now I know what it's like for those buzz killers who complain about Wes Anderson films.
