The gathering implausibility is dispelled by a nice ending twist.
March 7, 2011
Brotherhood has its faults -- the plot unravels a fair bit -- but the Tarantino homage is reasonable and the nightmarish atmosphere well maintained, with bizarre black-comic jolts.
March 7, 2011
Like its characters, Brotherhood is not a perfect film, but it's a highly effective, jolting and dark ride that plays especially well with an audience.

Ingeniously constructed and propulsively paced.

Here's a tough, twisty, relentlessly paced little indie in which a college frat hazing looks pretty much like a gang initiation.
March 3, 2011
Leanly scripted, directed for maximum tension, fast-moving and filled with a surprising amount of droll humor.

Just a variant on the old chestnut about a fraternity initiation gone terribly wrong...but told so tautly that you're swept up in it nevertheless.

We can't say enough great things about this terrific debut and how well it plays even on repeat viewings when you know where things are going.

It exposes the snobbery, racism and macho idiocy encouraged by fraternities.

The number of coincidences... required to motivate all the story's twists and turns is a little too great to be plausible - but Canon never pauses for breath or allows even a moment for reflection, editing his scenes with a rapid-fire staccato

Punchily played and cannily directed, this may be a touch contrived and overpopulated with minor characters, but it's still highly entertaining.

Watchable events-spiralling-out-of-control thriller enlivened by strong performances, an above-average script and pacey direction.
