Editorial Reviews

When a shocking murder is committed in their small town, the Fairburn brothers (Paul Bettany and Stephen Graham) are detectives who will do whatever it takes to catch the killer and try to live-up to the reputation of their tough-as-nails ex-police chief father (Brian Cox). But when a suspect’s interrogation spins violently out of control, the brothers must deal with the consequences…and the mounting suspicions of a colleague (Mark Strong) seeking the truth. A gritty, electrifying suspense-thriller about the price of duty, the ties of family, and the bonds of Blood.

3.0 out of 5 stars Missed the mark September 22, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Good potential, but fell short. The script felt rushed and contrived. A great cast, but just didn't have the material to work with. It leaves the viewer with the same empty emotion the actors must have felt going through the motions. While not a terrible film, it is a shame that it couldn't deliver with all the ingredients.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a Watch August 1, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
A girl, fifteen, is murdered. Strong clues point to a suspect who is quickly picked up by the police. The suspect appears to be a real low life. He even laughs at the police, apparently mocking them. Yet, he is released due to a lack of hard evidence. An outraged officer decides to take the law into his own hands... Things go south; I'm talking Tierra del Fuego south.

All of the above happens in the opening portions of this film. Some variation of this theme has often appeared in movie land. What distinguishes this production from others of the same sort, it seems to me, is brilliant cinematography. It's set on the coast in England. Much of the action takes place on the beach. The town nearby is also depicted with great skill.

I thought the acting was somewhat uneven. There were emotional outbursts that seemed forced, unnatural. I thought one character, the aging, going senile, father of two of the police officers in the story, added very little to the mix. The ending was rather weak.

Yet, it did keep me engaged to the end. All in all, it's worth a watch.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Agony And Defeat January 12, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
3 1/2 Stars

A fifteen year old girl is found near a skate park, bloodied and beaten, in an Oceanside city in the UK. The best detectives are on top of it. Joe Fairburn, played by Paul Bettany, and his brother, Chrissie, played by Stephen Graham,are the sons of a retired detective who led the unit. Mark Strong, brilliantly plays the smart detective bent on finding the killer.

A suspect is found quickly, but because of a lack of evidence, he is let go. Joe and Chrissie on a drunken night decide to follow their father's old ways. This leads to a terrible night, one they will never forget. This is a film about falling apart, losing our way, trying to recover, but we know we won't. Along the way, the film failed, becoming formulaic, and far too long. The film ran out of a credible script, and too much agony and defeat took over.

Stellar performances by Brian Cox who plays the Fairburn's father, who suffers from dementia, and Mark Strong, who always has the best performance he can give. He needs a lead in a film to show his stuff.

Very effective and moody; will the brothers get away with it? Excellent cast, and shows the fine gray line between right and wrong. Mark Strong (for once) plays the good guy.

3.0 out of 5 stars THIS BLOOD IS A LITTLE ANEMIC February 26, 2014
By Ron
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Blood is a well crafted cop drama with one exception and that's the writing. The production values are very good from the acting to the cinematography to the editing.
The story is a familiar one in which a cop knows he has his man, but the seasoned criminal turned born again Christian isn't talking. One thing leads to another and now the cop has some problems with his suspect and his fellow cop brother.
The story is missing some key elements that detract from building suspense and intrigue and binding the story together to pull the viewer deeper into the story. It just falls a little flat, but is still worth the time with its good performances and landscape cinematography.
The movie contains some partial backside nudity, some foul language and a mild dose of violence form a couple of fights scenes and a murder or two. The gore is kept to a minimum with a female murder victim and a charred body.
Overall a three star movie with good acting, but a weak story.

4.0 out of 5 stars I did like it January 27, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie has one of my very favorite actors in it, Paul Bettany, as always he plays his part so very well. The bleak aspects of this film are necessary for the story. Thought it was terrific but it did drag at times.

4.0 out of 5 stars aCTION mOVIE January 25, 2014
By D Dub
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I thought this was a good drama movie. Family of cops, and one of them kills a guy, then tries to cover it up. I gave it four stars because it ended a little crazy. It was a good movie, and I liked it up until the end. I'm not sure that I would go to the movies to see, or tell others to purchase it. I would tell people to rent it, maybe? That's my recommendation.
