What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Nils van der Linden
Leon van Nierop It takes about 30 minutes before the film's charm wears off.
Shaheema Barodien With crisp writing and a masterful cast, The Brothers Bloom is well worth your time.
Marco Cerritos The final result is an interesting mess.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert At a certain point, we think we're in on the moves of the con, and then we think we're not, and then we're not sure, and then we're wrong, and then we're right, and then we're wrong again, and we're entertained up to another certain point...
Adam Nayman What’s best about The Brothers Bloom, though, is the unusual way in which Johnson invites and then exploits our inherent wariness of con-man scenarios. The script frontloads most of its trickery and then dares us to take the disarming sincerity of the final moments at face value. It’s a gamble that pays off.
C. Fuchs Despite the great cast, a fun opening sequence establishing the brotherly duo, and some creative flourishes, I found most of the affair forced when not boring.
Tomatometer Despite strong performances The Brothers Bloom ultimately does not fulfill its lofty ambitions
