Blood Ties Reviews
Clive Owen plays Chris a newly released criminal who wants to g o straight and put his life back together .
Billy Crudup is his younger brother Frank who happens to be a New York cop who has his own problems and needs Chris going back to crime like a hole in the head.
Pretty soon both brothers are on a collision course as Chris reverts to type and Frank is forced to choose between his job and his family.
If you can handle Owens wobbly accent there is plenty else on offer to sustain your interest.
It helps that the female leads are just as strong as the men with Mila Kunis Zoe Saldana and Mario Cotillard all giving great perfomances.
Its not perfect the plot does dull a little in places and some plot lines feel a little forced but I really enjoyed this film and its one I feel you should seek out if you love strong acting and drama
A brother recently released from jail returns home to an established brother that feels like doing right by the law. The recently incarcerated brother returns to the mob life after failing at love and living a normal life. He runs a brothel that puts him and his family in danger.
"Your mother was a bitch."
Guillaume Canet, director of Tell No One, Little White Lies, and Whatever You Say, delivers Blood Ties. The storyline for this picture was just okay for about 75 percent of the movie but really concludes well as the characters evolutions blossom. The acting was better than I anticipated and the cast includes Clive Owen, Zoe Saldana, Mila Kunis, Billy Crudup, Marion Cotillard, and Lili Taylor.
"Stop judging me!"
Blood Ties was a movie I came across on Netflix and decided to give it a viewing when I saw it starred Zoe Saldana (I'm a fan). She wasn't in this much but the story of the brothers worked very well and I adored how the film ended. I recommend seeing this once as it may be worth a viewing.
