A Great Indie Movie!
13 November 2020 | by sierramae-75154See all my reviews

Iron Brothers was an excellent movie on its own, but an even better movie when I realized- it's only a student film! It likely had a low budget, and definitely had a VERY small production team. (Pay attention to the credits- there are a lot of repeat names). It's hard to believe the quality! Indie movies often focus so intensely on being artistic that the story and character development get pushed aside. However, this film was able to do both! It tells a magnificent story about two brothers, and their character developments are truly inspiring. It is also beautifully artistic. The score and cinematography are INCREDIBLE, and the whole thing makes you feel like you're embarking on a great adventure! Definitely worth the watch!
