Brotherhood – Movie Review

Brotherhood

Plot: Adam Buckley finds himself in the middle of a convenience store robbery during his last night as a pledge for a college fraternity. When the initiation ritual goes horribly wrong, and every move proves disastrous, Adam is forced to confront a new challenge all together, and he has to take a stand.

My Thoughts: I really love movies like this, ones where if anything can possible goes wrong and awry, it does, and in this movie every single move that any of them make really just keeps getting worse.

The movie starts out with an initiation ceremony that no one really wants to take part in but everyone ends up doing. The pledges are supposed to “rob” a convenience store but they don’t really rob it, they run out of the van in a hurry and end up being given some money by a fellow member of the fraternity. Here where it starts to screw up for these kids, a mix up of location on one of the frat members parts screws up the entire night that could have been avoided. The member was supposed to be at a certain convenience store, the pledges go to a different ont, so when one runs out of the van, he actually runs in and robs the bank.

That is only the first of their problems, I won’t say anymore to save myself from ruining the movie, which I for sure do not want to do.

The movie was a cast of a bunch of unknown kids who are probably of the age of pledging into a frat. If you have read some of my other reviews you would know that I love when a movie is casted with new kids, it gives other people being chances at being movie stars which is what I hope for all of them!

I appreciated the way the movie was directed and written because not at one point was there really a time when you were confused as to what was going on, you never really needed any explanations because the movie was really easy to follow. Everything flowed so well, this movie was like watching domino’s fall (in a good way). One thing would happen which would lead to an immediate effect making everything worse for the people in the movie.

I give the movie a 4 out of 5 because the movie was just way too short for my liking. Oh well, the time was appropriate to the story I suppose.
