Blood Ties is a muscular and old-fashioned drama of crime and family. It is the first English-language film by French actor and director Guillaume Canet, perhaps known best behind the camera for the art-house hit Tell No One. He shares writing credit here with director James Gray, who has developed a small, but potent cult fan base for his films set in and around Brighton Beach, including We Own the Night and Two Lovers. For his fans, his authentic, soulful, and urban touch overshadows any repetition in regard to content and location. This new film bears a strong resemblance to We Own Night: the focus is once again on brothers, one an honest detective (Billy Crudup) and the other a career criminal (Clive Owen), and their painful bid to understand and forgive one another amidst escalating tension and violence.

This is not a hard film for a cynic to criticize, so I am not surprised by the mixed reviews. Though played by recognizable performers such as Marion Cotillard (the director's wife), Mila Kunis, and Zoe Saldana, none of the female characters are complex, functioning only as girlfriends and wives, betrayers and prostitutes. For Gray, it could be described as a cinematic greatest-hits record, constructed from characters, confrontations, and themes lifted from his overall oeuvre. And understatement is not always the film's strong suit: note how a scene in which one character, a former drug user, relapses is set to none other than "Heroin" by the Velvet Underground. Despite the flaws, however, Blood Ties is still entertaining, overflowing with period-perfect design choices and exciting heist and chase sequences. And as the brothers, both stars are riveting; they give the domestic dysfunction depth and grit, ensuring the audience invests in their shared fate. Owen in particular shines as a man who motions at times toward nobility and redemption, but always finds himself turning again to murder and theft out of desperation and self-hatred.

Family tension, gritty 70’s crime sprees, hookers, conflicted cops, jilted convicts, blood in the streets; ‘Blood Ties’ has it all. Now, I say all of this and the first thing you’re going to think is that this movie is one of those tightly wound action flicks that star Bruce Willis and are directed by Michael Bay and yet ‘Blood Ties’ defies it’s genre and it’s material by maintaining a slow burn with a slick cast and a smart director. It never thrusts too much in your face at one time, but pulls back and develops a rich tapestry of characters, themes and plot points over the course of two hours that leave us absorbed in this world.

Guillaume Canet’s crime drama is set in the 70’s and focuses on two brothers on different sides of the law. Frank, the younger brother, grew up straight. He watched his older brother make mistake after mistake and used that as inspiration to right wrongs and stay on the straight and narrow. Because of that, Frank is a cop, while his older brother Chris is a con who was just released from prison. With nowhere to go and an ex-wife who hates him, Chris winds up moving in with Frank, much to the dismay of Frank’s department. Still, Chris seems determined to clean up his act. He gets a good job, reunites with some buddies who have some interesting business ventures lined up and even gets a new flame, Natalie. Still, your past haunts you, and both Frank and Chris wind up realizing the truth of that statement. Frank finds his passions for an ex-flame, Vanessa, to be too much for him to ignore, even if that means putting away her current boyfriend, Scarfo, and Chris finds that he can’t seem to live down his past and soon he decides to embrace it.

But, when morality divides brothers, is blood truly thicker than water?

I guess this is an american remake of a French movie. I think the actors did a good job but I found the movie over long and the main theme an old one. Like Clive Owen but not in this movie. Not recommended

I am 50 mins. into watching this film and it compelled me to check out Amazon.com and IMDB to find out who are responsible for this boring and cliche ridden brother cop brother ex-convict old hat? I found out it was co-written by James Gray and directed by Guillaume Canet(who?). It turns out GC is a well-known actor in France and had made a couple of well-received films back home. This film has an impressive lineup of established actors, Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Mila Kunis, Zoe Saldana, Marion Cotillard and James Caan! The background is 1974 NYC with desaturated color cinematography and music from the period(too much and too obtrusive). Now it is 60 mins. into the film and I am fast forwarding............... the brothers fight.......bank robbery goes wrong........bar brawl........car chase.............brother tries to protect brother.......brother commits murder to save brother.....and the END!?.............. Don't waste your time on watching this movie.

This is a movie about crime (without little non splatter violence) and redemption (that comes in a weird way)!
A rather slow movie with no great picks but with some great acting and great 70s clothes and music.
Clive Owen is more than great!

Again, it is a movie drama, about criminal, his cop brother and their family that is caught in the middle.
But there are no extravagance car chases, no constant foul language, no brutal killings and hero thugs.
It is a calmer film, that goes by slowly yes, but it makes you want to watch and pay attention to every detail,
weather that is Mila Kunis or the shirts that Clive Owen wears.

It is a fun and good movie to watch, especially for fans of older cop movies / series.
