Great film in every aspect
29 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was in my local drug store when I came across a DVD titled the Rhino Brothers. Being a hockey fan and player, I looked at the price tag of about 8 dollars and said what the hell. Well I got home that evening and what I saw was simply jaw dropping. The way this film conveys the world of a hockey player is dead on. It is indeed a beautiful story about the dreams that every hockey player has, and how those dreams very seldom come to fruition. And as the story is progressing and becoming more dark and twisted, you see the relationship between the brothers diminish. The acting is incredible. Will MacDonald gives us one of the greatest performances I have ever seen. He plays the role perfectly, and his character becomes simply a part of your life. Gabrielle Rose is not too shabby either with her portrayal of Ellen. Throughout the film you see her controlling personality over her children. The rest of the cast gives off solid performances, and the directing is spot on, with beautiful use of the camera. A nine out of ten. The extra star is taken aback because of A) I don't think any movie can get a ten , and B) the films hockey sequences are a bit sluggish. A fantastic film. Go and see, "THE RHINO BROTHERS"!
