Blood Ties

Crime runs in the family.


Blood Ties
Set in New York back in 1974. A Fifty-year-old man has just been released on good behaviour after several years in prison following a gangland murder. Reluctantly waiting for him outside the gates is his younger brother, who is a cop with a bright future. Hoping that his brother has changed, the cop 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. But the 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, they part ways. But it's already too late, as their destiny is bound together, forever.

Tomatometer quote iconBlood Ties boasts a fine cast and palpable period detail, but ultimately fails to do much of anything new with its formulaic story.
