I wish that I could recommend this to everyone, but its charms are too slight for anyone but those who are most likely to hear its siren song

Surely not your typical Western...there were several times where it felt time to wrap it up...I didn't understand why the movie was still going, why were you still telling this story?

As we all know, anything goes in the Wild West and so too here, as the boys toss around bon mots and sophisticated ideas as they shoot just about any living thing around them.

The western is noticeably hampered by structural and tonal issues ... Solid performances by likable actors can't save this indie western being weighed by its script.

It's not quite clear who this movie is for, what it is, or what it was even trying to be.

September 12, 2018
Despite outstanding actors and a seemingly interesting premise, The Sisters Brothers fails to deliver.
October 18, 2018
The Sisters Brothers has uncommon depth but routinely cheapens it with overeager or expository dialogue.
October 6, 2018
Violent but aimless, shuffling along with barely any tension in its heavy-handedly delivered 121 minute running time

Audiard is given the kind of material made to deepen archetypes and clichés-an admirable intent-but every attempt for Audiard to deepen his western ends up working against the genre's every natural impulse and inclination.

Audiard delivers an impersonal western, which aims to launch maxims on the corrosive nature of greed, but which is barely efficient and does not contain a single memorable shot or sequence. [Full Review in Spanish]

It lacks originality and inspiration. It is a story about the past that is also constrained by history.

The Sisters Brothers retreats back from some interesting, adventurous territory to something all too familiar.
September 9, 2018
After its first episodic hour, I found myself struggling against a growing disappointment as I wondered if Audiard was going to take us anywhere particularly adventuresome or truly new.

For the first three-quarters of The Sisters Brothers, the offbeat adventures and the fine performances are more than enough to carry the day - but then the wheels come off.

Surely there must be more here, right? No, there really isn't.
September 10, 2018
The Sisters Brothers ultimately never quite manages to become more than the sum of its parts...

September 21, 2018
Alas, instead of a rip-snorting western, what we get is a pseudo-psychological study of two brothers who are cold-blooded killers but are treated with so much sympathy it makes one want to gag.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
September 17, 2018
A plodding western interested more in a study of two brothers than in providing real adventure.
