Hannah Lee Baker is a bright teen girl trapped in the dark Southern underworld of violence and guns, meth labs and vicious biker gangs, and whose only refuge is chess. She lives with Amber, her older sister; and her uncle Donny, an addict. All live in fear of Uncle Frank Stinson, who runs the illegal family business with an iron fist, aided by his psychotic younger brother Bobby. Things change for the worse when Amber falls in love with Wild Bill, a meth trafficker who finds himself at war with Frank. Hannah realizes the only way to save her family is by cleverly scheming to pit one pawn against another in a cunning chess game.Written by
Hannah Lee Baker:
The queen is quaint and quick conceit, which makes her walk which way she list. And roots spin up that lie in wait, to work her treason 'ere she wist. Her force is such against her foes, that whom she meets she over throws.

Blood is thicker ... so that's how thick headed thinking starts
This is a decent thriller that is more than predictable. Even if you haven't seen too many of those you can see where it goes. It's still nice to watch, if not really that great. The actors do a very good job with the clichés they get to portray. It's the girl that has to carry the most (and you might have seen her in a few other movies already) and she pulls that off.
For a movie with "Blood" in its title, there is not too much in the movie though. Still the violence can be disturbing (especially one scene involving the always reliable "crazy" guy Vinnie Jones ... that's crazy in movies of course). Not the greatest movie, but decent
