JoBlo Reviews Brothers

JoBlo have their review up and its a much more lukewarm affair. The reviewer goes to great pains to point out its not bad, but it’s not as deeply fulfilling as the original either.

With Maguire and Portman, there is very little chemistry as the father grows distant to his wife and children due to his suffering in Afghanistan, I didn’t feel much of anything for those involved. I did however like Portman, as she seemed a tad more comfortable in her skin, and she did share some nice scenes with Gyllenhaal. But her performance is nowhere near as memorable as Nielsen in the Danish film.
