Trivia

Shot on digital RED cameras. This was director Sacha Bennett's first attempt at filming with digital and he was pleasantly surprised by the results, having heard that the new technology was sometimes problematic. This was not Bennett's experience apart from when they shot on really cold days when the camera's hard drive would freeze. See more »

Goofs

When Craig Rolfe is arguing with his wife at their home he open and slams shut the fridge, several of the fridge magnets are clearly visible and relate to films and events that took place well after 1994, in the top left hand corner you can clearly see a fridge magnet of Doug the talking dog from the movie Up.

A complete mess
26 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There have been a couple of previous films about the Essex Range Rover murders. Both were pretty forgettable but neither are anywhere near as bad as Bonded by Blood. It's quite a rare thing to have a film where every actor on display is no good. You usually get one stand out performance but with this movie everyone stinks. Tamer Hussan plays his usual role as Mokney Cockney Essex wide boy and you wouldn't expect any different from a one trick pony actor like him but it grates on you when there are people trying to out " Essex " him on screen. Terry Stone and Neil Maskell are so over the top with their acting it's laughable. I also have problem with the director of this mess. It must have taken great skill for Sacha Bennett to make a film look such a mess.It has no form or structure and events happen with no explanation while other threads are dropped and forgotten about. The only good thing about Bonded by Blood is that the Essex tosser Danny Dyer isn't in it but that's hardly a reason to watch this trash. Avoid
