The Brothers Bloom

Guy Ritchie meets Wes Anderson to make something neither of them would mind owning.

Brothers bloom has all the right ingredients for a great action / drama on the lines of oceans 11 or the italian job. The oh how did they do that moments soon followed by the chop and cut sequence of oh that’s how they did it.

What really makes it is the beautiful cinematography and the visual direction, it has the panning angles with the raw jerky camera at times and most of all the framing with focus on the front and something comical on the back, it’s really nicely done. The comical bit of the film feels like something from a Ritchie/anderson film if there was one. 

The story follows two brothers turned con men and their adventures rather the classic oh I’m going to quit but wait let’s do one last stint bit. The last stint’s mark is a odd but beautiful woman and the story follows.So yes the plot isn’t particularly original nor are the details. But what is original is the flow of the film and how all the pieces come together to make a good family watch. 

If I were to change anything in the film around the 75% mark in the film, I would end it right there not play the whole thing through it felt like an encore of a comic standup but wait there’s more, the ending is something you could live with though.

There are great bits in between and the humour is done well and Bang Bang what a cool character. A silent asian girl with the bloom brothers whose actions speak louder with her addiction to explosives and guns. 

A good watch
