My Brother Reviews

Its earnest tone, moving orchestral score and strong cast carry it past the rough patches.

| Original Score: 3/5

My Brother is a brave little film, with the emphasis on little. Shot on a shoestring, it lacks the polish of many indie efforts but compensates with bold casting and a big heart.

A moving and meaningful melodrama about a blood bond tested by the trials and tribulations of trying to survive in the inner-city.

Robert W. Butler
Kansas City Star

Has no shortage of heart, but it has been so clumsily organized and falls back so often on clichéd storytelling that any early goodwill quickly morphs into resentment.

| Original Score: 2/4

A moralistic black drama that makes its points with a heavy hand and unconvincing story developments.

A young man takes an awfully long time to discover what the audience already knows -- that his disabled brother is the most precious thing in his life -- in My Brother.

Story loses momentum in a wave of heavy-handed messages.

My Brother is brimming with would-be life lessons. But the movie goes in so many directions, and follows through on so few of them, that all it transmits is a vague glow. It's watered-down chicken soup for the soul.

What starts as a taut urban crime drama quickly sags into lurid after-school-special sentimentality.

[A] torpid, independently made urban melodrama.
