DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Thriller - This is a slow, talky, downbeat all-star ensemble crime drama. While the pace is fairly slow, there is also a number of moments of brutal violence, sexual situations, and non-stop language, so this is definitely not for kids. Fans of leads Clive Owen and Billy Crudup will be pleased, but fans of the female stars such as Zoe Saldana and Mila Kunis may be disappointed by their limited screen time.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average But the virtues I've cited are real enough, too, and if you're an ardent admirer of pretty much anyone in the cast (OK, except Emmerich), you'll find something worthwhile here.

NY Post Full Review
Average It all feels so familiar, from the beleaguered female characters, to the scene-setting anthems ("New York Groove" is well-used, admittedly), to the predictable eruptions of violence.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
New York, 1974. Fifty-year-old Chris (Clive Owen) has just been released on good behavior after several years in prison following a gangland murder. Reluctantly waiting for him outside the gates is his younger brother, Frank (Billy Crudup), a cop with a bright future. Chris and Frank have always been different, and their father, Leon (James Caan), who raised them alone, seems to favor Chris despite all his troubles. Yet blood ties are the ones that bind, and Frank, hoping that his brother has changed, is willing to give him a chance -- he shares his home, finds him a job, and helps him reconnect with his children and his ex-wife, Monica (Marion Cotillard). But Chris' inevitable descent back into a life of crime proves to be the last in a long line of betrayals, and after his brother's latest transgressions, Frank banishes him from his life. But it's already too late, as the brothers' destiny is bound together, forever.
