Watched with the missus in the sneak preview on tuesday:

Blood Ties
The story of two brothers: one (Clive Owen) is a criminal who has just served a long prison sentence, the other (Billy Cudrup) is a police officer who made sure the new partner of his ex went to prison.
If it wasn`t for the actors, you`d could be forgiven for thinking that Blood Ties is a 70s police thriller. Everything about the film makes you think of films like The French Connection, only a bit slower. With a running time of two hours 24 minutes it`s a long and slow film. But not for a single moment it`s boring.
The story as well the visual part of it keeps you interested all the time. The story is strong (although predictable at times) and the acting performances are, especially from Owen, excellent. The film looks great as well. With a grainy image, long shots and the overall way of shooting it`s a beautiful hommage and addition to the 70s thrillers.
Great to see that these kinda films are still being made. Sit down and just let it come over you. If you will, you`ll see an excellent movie.

Really looking forward to this since it was first announced. Thought the French original (Rivals/Les Liens du Sang) was really gritty- Giving the feel of 70's crime movies.
Can't wait to see how Canet (one of the brothers in the original film) handles the direction of the remake.
Not usually a Clive Owen fan but the supporting cast are mostly amazing.
Billboard advertising all over Paris last August- Seems to be taking ages to come out here- Several different dates depending on where you read it- imdb, etc.
Hurry up!
