The Scientist and the Businessman
22 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

The scientist Spencer Deighton is researching with his partner Carl Toman a retrovirus that can cure and eradicate all disease from mankind. However his brother Michael Deighton, who is a businessman and aspirant CEO of their laboratory, convinces Spencer that the virus could be a threat to mankind if the insect population were mutated and the human population could die of starvation and they shut down the research. But Michael real intention is to sell the drug for wealthy people only and no one can stop him.

"Blood Brothers" is an episode of "The Outer Limits" with great potential with the fight of an idealistic man and his greedy brother. But the motive to shut down the research is absolutely silly. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Blood Brothers"
