After watching I checked the reviews and was quite surprised that they are all pretty negative. The acting of both brothers was very convincing and touched me a lot. I didn't get bored at all but wanted to see what happens next. There were by far enough action scenes. It made the movie look real rather than stupid. I'm not a fan of ridiculous action scenes every five minutes - So this was just fine for me. It's mainly about the relationship and history of the two brothers and was described good enough to understand. I'm a big fan of Adrien Brody and thought his performance was excellent. People should at least give the movie a try and I'm sure lots won't be disappointed. Maybe the title wasn't the right choice but all in all this was an entertaining and cool movie with a surprising end.
