Movie Info

In the City of Brotherly Love, eight-year-old Peter Flood helplessly watches on as his little sister is killed by a neighbor's reckless driving. Tormented with grief and resentment, his father finds revenge as the only solution, leaving lasting generational wounds. Thirty years later, Peter still wrestles with the guilt he feels over his sister's death and his father's vengeance. As he tries to distance himself from the criminal family business, his cousin, Michael, becomes more powerful in the hierarchy. Bonded by blood, neither man can escape violence as they are dragged further into a chilling cycle of betrayal and retribution.

Critic Reviews for Brothers by Blood

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (20)

  • A waiting game in which both the audience and the movie lose.

    January 22, 2021 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Casual viewers, unwilling to sit through 90 minutes that feel like three hours, won't find much interest in such a somber, slow-burn approach...

    January 22, 2021 | Full Review…
  • It feels rather plodding... failing to turn the boxer's conflicting loyalties into the stuff of crime-flick high drama.

    January 22, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Director Jérémie Guez paints his Philadelphia-set gangster tale with authentic-enough colors, but he fails to find a convincing reason to tell this story, of these Philadelphia gangsters, at this time.

    January 22, 2021 | Rating: D | Full Review…
  • It's hard to say that any other edit would be better, because Brothers by Blood is one single, grey mass to the bone, an unfortunate use of a sterling cast and a book that deserves a more textured retelling.

    January 22, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Everyone's miserable in "Brothers," and this joyless exercise from stylish director Jérémie Guez has nothing new to say.
