Anything for the Brotherhood

Gregor (John Ralston ) and his wife Adalina (Lina Roessler ) operate a bakeshop that is a front for drug dealing for the Russian mafia (John Rhys-Davies ). The Aryan Nation is forcing themselves into the Russian's meth business and blood has been shed. Gregor hires Lance (Alan Van Sprang ) a former member to kill the local group and leave no witnesses. He leaves a witness and now he is hunted by those that hired him. Well acted low key action film. Lance is the reluctant protagonist. If you use a hot iron on your chest, have antibiotics nearby. Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity.

A bit more than just cliched violence for violence's sake...

From the trailer I was worried this would just be gratuitous violence for violence's sake... but it was more! A pleasant surprise! Great acting and wonderfully dark atmosphere.... You can almost feel the weight of a harsh harsh life of pain, violence and suffering on the main character's life. The story-line/plot is very cliched but because of the great acting and the well main 'characters', those cliches somehow didn't annoy me (as it normally would have me rolling my eyes and groaning). It seems to me that this film is constantly pushing a message - which I appreciate! (I hate senseless violence and I hate glorifying violent or criminal lifestyles like mob-life or gangs even more!) This film does the opposite, it shows that those lifestyles of crime - drugs, murder etc are horrible, dark and that they TAINT you... for the rest of your life... There is a MORAL to this story which those horrible Hollywood movies usually don't show and for that, I have to write this, so it's not overlooked! Oh.. the moral, as i said above? It's about how low behavior 'taints' you and that it is UGLY. Not a high quality 'great' movie but definitely well above average and worth a look!

Well done un-Hollywoodized low budget Canadian crime film

This is novice writer and director Brent Cote's first full length feature film, with only a handful of shorts and a TV movie on his resume. Although I found the pacing extremely slow, I was still glued to the screen waiting for what will happen next. The normally comfortable 90 min runtime could've used 10-15 min of trimming on some stretched out and/or unnecessary scenes. Although the story is nothing revolutionary, imo, it was told really well and convincingly, with a perfect ending, and in a refreshingly un-Hollywoodish manner. The score was surprisingly perfect, especially for a low budget B-film, as was the soundtrack. Directing and cinematography were on point and showcased the film very well. Casting was decent, with most of the characters convincing in their roles. You could tell that better cast-directing by a seasoned director would've added the missing ummph in some dialogued scenes. But we need to cut some slack for the few rookie mistakes Cote made, as new filmmakers have to start somewhere, right? Still, a very enjoyable neo-noir styled low budget B-grade crime thriller. It's a 7.5 rounded up to 8/10 from me. To see more of my 1000+ ratings and 900+ reviews, click on my username.
