Thoughts on Blood Brother

Blood Brother is an action thriller that will see former friends going head to head after falling on different sides of the law after an incident in their past. This will have a nice pace about how everything unfolds. Showing the intense race across the town to stop the recently released criminal from committing more crimes. Exposing the truth about the young version of the cops involvement in the same incident.

The story is kept tight, while never seemingly letting more of the story breath, leading to the same interactions between the characters. Which do take away from the bigger picture that could come from the truth. The performances are good from the whole cast, nobody looks out of place in this one, they will give us the believable amount of resentment for what has happened too.
