Critic Reviews of "Bonded by Blood"VarietySeptember 03, 2010
Willfully exploitative...Movie MetropolisJanuary 08, 2011
Worth watching, but the whole just isn't nearly as effective as some of the parts.Shadows on the WallSeptember 09, 2010
Based on the same true story previously told on film with skill (2000's Essex Boys) and without (2007's Rise of the Footsoldier), it's kind of difficult to understand why there's yet another movie version. Especially one as uninteresting as this.Total FilmSeptember 09, 2010
Everything from script to performances goes through the motions, with only Vincent Regan's Mickey registering in more than one dimension.Film4September 09, 2010
Though director Sacha Bennett's effort is well shot and evokes its mid-nineties setting well, its disjointed structure makes for a weak narrative, and only in the third act does it finally come together with any sort of momentum or urgency.ViewLondonSeptember 04, 2010
Uninspired, ridiculously sweary British gangster thriller that's let down by tedious characters, a badly written script and a dull storyline that fails to provide a reason to care.GuardianSeptember 02, 2010
A pungent mess of gangster cliche.Daily Telegraph (UK)September 02, 2010
A thin, wan script, acting that's mostly embarrassing, and a stream of foul expletives where a script should be.Radio TimesSeptember 02, 2010
One must question whether it needs to exist at all, ploughing as it does an already well-worn crime-film furrow.Empire MagazineSeptember 01, 2010
Decently made and well-acted, but with a whiff of glossy, high-life voyeurism.Sky MoviesSeptember 01, 2010
There's no hiding the fact that Bonded By Blood is ultimately pretty anaemic, giving no further insight into an already over-exposed incident.
