September 1, 2010
Decently made and well-acted, but with a whiff of glossy, high-life voyeurism.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Worth watching, but the whole just isn't nearly as effective as some of the parts.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Based on the same true story previously told on film with skill (2000's Essex Boys) and without (2007's Rise of the Footsoldier), it's kind of difficult to understand why there's yet another movie version. Especially one as uninteresting as this.

Everything from script to performances goes through the motions, with only Vincent Regan's Mickey registering in more than one dimension.

September 9, 2010
Though director Sacha Bennett's effort is well shot and evokes its mid-nineties setting well, its disjointed structure makes for a weak narrative, and only in the third act does it finally come together with any sort of momentum or urgency.

September 4, 2010
Uninspired, ridiculously sweary British gangster thriller that's let down by tedious characters, a badly written script and a dull storyline that fails to provide a reason to care.

Willfully exploitative...
September 2, 2010
A pungent mess of gangster cliche.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 2, 2010
A thin, wan script, acting that's mostly embarrassing, and a stream of foul expletives where a script should be.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
September 2, 2010
One must question whether it needs to exist at all, ploughing as it does an already well-worn crime-film furrow.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 1, 2010
There's no hiding the fact that Bonded By Blood is ultimately pretty anaemic, giving no further insight into an already over-exposed incident.
