Storyline

Comedic actor Dax Shepard wants to change genres: with friend and producer Nate Tuck, he concocts a concept for an action film featuring martial arts. They drop in on Ashton Kutcher to see if he'll co-star, ask Jon Favreau to direct, and seek advice from Tom Arnold (because he was in "True Lies"). The road to a green light is rough, full of stops and cul-de-sacs. Along the way there's a front-yard wrestling match with Bradley Cooper and David Koechner, back stories on other Shepard/Tuck ventures, and a rupture in a life-long friendship. Can Dax get his kung-fu movie made in spite of rejection? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

As for "Brother's Justice", justice was decently served.
11 August 2011 | by joelnova93See all my reviews

Without professional training or proper structure for pitching a film, Dax Shepard goes out on a whim to raise his brain child, "Brother's Justice", a Martial-Arts film starring himself, and abandons his career in comedy to dedicate himself to it's production full-time. Surprisingly, Dax recruits long time friend Nate Tuck as his producer and they embark on a quest for funding, a cast, and advertisement in hopes of bringing "Brother's Justice" to the big screen. Dax has such high hopes for the film, he even hires David Palmer, who is also the director of the actual movie, to film its progress as a documentary.

Now to be clear, this film is a mockumentary about Dax Shepard making a movie, if you were confused.

The Dax portrayed in the movie, struggling to bring his magnum opus to a theater near you, seemed like he also struggled to bring comedy in the film in some areas. Surely there were hilarious moments in the film, as you would expect, but other times Dax was trying too hard to be funny, and even though it is a mockumentary, it seemed a little too dumb at times. However, I did enjoy it very much. The movie was fresh the whole way through, and was pleasantly entertaining and original. Shepard did not slack off in light of the resources available to do the film, but I still feel it had eminent potential to be a gigantic success if a few extra hands were involved in the writing process. Although it wasn't as powerful as prejudged, it wouldn't hurt to take the blindfold off "Brother's Justice" and have a pretty good laugh.
