One Of The Best "Canadian" Movies I've seen
19 November 2004 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

I don't see a lot of Canadian movies. Although I am Canadian, I find Canadian movies to be overblown and poorly produced. So when I watched The Rhino Brothers on DVD, I was prepared to be disappointed.

I couldn't have been more wrong. This movie was simply wonderful in all the right ways, great acting from everyone playing the Kanachowskis. All of them were totally believable as a small town hockey family chasing elusive dreams. The cinematography was amazing. Trust me, Dwayne Beaver KNOWS about small town life. As soon as I saw the sunken livingroom Victor's family was living in, I realized that we were witnessing something special. The story itself isn't totally 100% scot-free, some lingering questions why Stefan quit the sport he loved and why no one else could find out of what happened to his NHL career remain, and there are some very odd subplots that don't really pan out, Such as Sasha's involvement trying to get a job. But those are sort of minor quibbles, and I wouldn't mind getting this on DVD some day.
