The Brothers Bloom has it all: charming romance, jaunty adventure story, witty dialogue, gorgeous cinematography and superb performances. Read full review
The jaunty, energetic first 10 minutes of The Brothers Bloom are easily the best first 10 minutes of any film I've seen this year. And while the succeeding hour and 43 minutes doesn't hold up to the movie's opening scenes, the whole endeavor is still an awfully good time. Read full review
The Brothers Bloom with satisfy those with a yearning for lighthearted heist tales, comedies, and offbeat romances. Read full review
This time we expect to be played, but the twist is that we're also touched -- which, the film implies, is the cinema's own form of deception. Read full review
This movie is lively at times, it's lovely to look at, and the actors are persuasive in very difficult material. But around and around it goes, and where it stops, nobody by that point much cares. Read full review
Rian Johnson's film is a scam wrapped in a sham. Read full review
A couple of rather Dickensian supporting roles by Robbie Coltrane and Maximilian Schell fall embarrassingly flat as they are more creations of costumes and makeup than actual flesh-and-blood. But then the same can be said for the entire movie. Read full review
Emotionally, The Brothers Bloom hasn't a trace of detachment or cynicism. Even if you don't quite comprehend the ending (there seem to be 12 of them), you'll still feel the wallop of its consequences. Read full review
Breezily enjoyable for about 10 minutes, until you realize the entire movie is going to be pitched at the same exuberantly manic pace. It's like being trapped in an elevator with a performing poodle that doesn't know when to quit. Read full review
An overstuffed failure that mistakes sleight storytelling for dazzling entertainment. Read full review
