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.

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.

This is a re-imagining of a BBC six part thriller from 2004 called `Conviction'. It is set in a nameless part of Northern England and involves a family where policing is in the blood. Brother cops, Joe Fairburn (Paul Bettany `Master and Commander') and Chrissie Fairburn (Stephen Graham `Best laid Plans') have to investigate the murder of a schoolgirl. Although she has not been sexually abused they still turn their attention to a locally known paedophile and in great cop tradition decide that he has done it, irrespective of the evidence.

Well their boss knows better and realises that they are going to have to let him go with their circumstantial, at best, case. The thing is they feel personally affronted by this person. So after a night partying where their father (Brian Cox) has regaled them with tales of police confession extractions, in the good old days, so duly inspired they come up with a cunning plan. That is when everything goes massively wrong and they become the police assigned to solve a crime that they themselves have committed.

This is a great plot and a stellar cast and is actually rather good but considering the cast could or should have been a lot better. We have Mark Strong playing the loner cop who just wants the truth and he is one of the best actors of his generation. Brian Cox is always excellent but does not get much screen time as the dementia suffering ex cop. It is gritty in places and actually griping, but the whole thing has an inevitability about the ending which became a bit too predictable a bit too early. Still I did enjoy most of this and I have not seen the original TV series so am unable to compare, but there is enough here to like hence my rating. Still nice to see some great British talent all in the same film and this is far from being a poor film, director Nick Murphy filmed this around The Wirral where he grew up and has to get thumbs up for the setting and cinematography and I look forward to more from him.

The story is about family, and the bonds of life-long community. These are people who are born, live, and die in the same community, generation after generation in a very small country, with blood-lines that date back to the sacredness of water and the sea.

It is also about the men who have the backbone, and courage to get close to deep human pain and insanity; and without falling over the edge, to deal with it. It's about attempts to evolve generationally toward less violent and primitive solutions.

In the 1970's, writer Dorothy Allison commented that to take a human life, is to live with the victim for the rest of one's life - relevant as well to this film.

Great scenic photography, and music, time, and place - interesting as well to see the breadth of the acting.

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.

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.
