Critic Reviews of "Blood Ties"Time OutAugust 13, 2014
If you hear an unearthly sound during Blood Ties, it might be Sidney Lumet's ghost attempting to contact his lawyer.Village VoiceMarch 27, 2014
Seems to be the continuation of a narrative that only exists in its characters' heads.Newark Star-LedgerMarch 21, 2014
I share Canet's affection for Sidney Lumet films full of scraggly sideburns and big brown Fleetwoods the size of the QE2. But if you really appreciated those movies, you'd use your memories of them to jumpstart something new.RogerEbert.comMarch 21, 2014
If you're an ardent admirer of pretty much anyone in the cast (OK, except Emmerich), you'll find something worthwhile here.Detroit NewsMarch 21, 2014
The performers carry on - Owen is particularly good - but this bird doesn't fly.Philadelphia InquirerMarch 21, 2014
An ambitious, if disappointing, period crime drama featuring Clive Owen and Billy Crudup as warring brothers on opposite sides of the law.The Film StageJune 27, 2016
Canet delivers a character-centered thriller that doesn't break so much as an inch of new ground.HeyUGuysAugust 29, 2014
Everything is in place to have created a truly sensational piece of cinema, and yet you can't help feeling somewhat cold towards this film, despite the memorable, impactful finale.Contactmusic.comAugust 21, 2014
While the story centres on twisted moral dilemmas, this 1970s-set thriller takes such a hesitant, internalised approach that if never lets viewers under the characters' skin.Movie TalkAugust 16, 2014
The film is too sprawling and unfocused to deliver real emotional clout, but there are are some gripping stand-offs along the way.Independent (UK)August 15, 2014
In its lesser moments, the film is overwrought and derivative but, at its best, it has a real flavour of Friedkin, Coppola and Scorsese.Daily Telegraph (UK)August 15, 2014
It starts out feeling like too many stars in search of a story, but Owen excels as a charismatic brute, and the tautly handled set pieces drag you back in for a solid payoff.
