The Sisters Brothers 2018 / Now On Hulu

7.9

This is a star-packed movie about two brother assassins played by John C. Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix, and starring Jake Gyllenhaal. You might have read the book of the same name, and it is always hard to make a great film out of a great book but the brilliant director of A Prophet Jacques Audiard has done it (again). He is aided by a superb darkly comic script and fantastic acting from the entire cast. Audiard is French, but his take on the American Western is filled with epic violence but also witty dialogue, brotherly love, and male camaraderie.

I hated this movie. Slow-moving, really predictable, resorting to “gee-whiz-golly” immaturity in the main characters. This is a classic cowboy Mayberry story with a crazy element added so that violence cna be introduced. But there’s no repercussions, no character development. Suck,

Watch this movie! It’s quirky, funny, and hopelessly non-genre Western fare. Oh there’s cowboys, horses, tarantulas, gun fights, betrayal, and a loving Mom. It is pure nuts … enjoy. John C. Reilly steals the show by the way.

Thank you for your reply. I do find the reviews a bit over the top. No constructive criticism. They can’t all be suberb and outstanding. Give us some balance
