Critic Reviews for Half Brothers

All Critics (41) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (14) | Rotten (27)

  • Director Director Luke Greenfield's bromantic comedy is a tonal mess, shifting from immigrant drama to infantile comedy. It's almost like someone created the screenplay off of the narrative limbs of others. Mendez deserves better.

    December 24, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • For the banal Half Brothers, a beneficial perspective would be one of the "eyes shut" variety.

    December 12, 2020 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Espinosa and Del Rio have little to build on than their characters' flimsy outline, and neither can really make their rapport work.

    December 7, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The screenplay is a kind of deep-dyed mediocrity that the film and its cast cannot transcend.

    December 5, 2020 | Full Review…
  • This story of two siblings attempting to fulfill their dying father's last request uneasily veers between juvenile comedy and schmaltzy sentimentality, managing to produce neither laughs nor tears.

    December 4, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The movie clearly intends to send a serious message about how draconian immigration policies tear families apart. But a hard-hitting drama would be preferable to this strenuously wacky bromance.
