Toon’s Review: The Brothers Bloom – 7/10

Adrien Brody, Rachel Weisz and Mark Ruffalo

Charming and beautiful at times, such wonder in the smiles of our characters, the wit of their lines and grandeur of the locations ‘The Brothers Bloom’ takes us.

It is a typical yet out of focus con story, not told well very well but shown brilliantly. Just amazing acting combined with genuine and bright characters, peppered with a wonderful soundtrack and classic film making almost led this piece of film to perfection. However, like many con stories, it dwindled in its own complexity, losing the characters to juxtaposition rather than the bond that made them all so entertaining in tandem. Leaving the ending to be a sigh of understanding, rather than the smile of a great finish.
