Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good ...this alcohol-soaked Frontier road trip constantly reinvents itself at every turn in fun, witty and ultimately touching ways. Call it a revisionist or an absurdist Western if you will, but Audiard's film feels both refreshingly new...and nostalgically familiar.

Rex Reed Full Review
Average ...it tries to be fresh and different, functioning more as a black-comedy character study than an action thriller. Mostly it's a misguided mess. ...the meandering pace slows down the trajectory and the plot hangs by a thin membrane, but the imaginative cast guarantees the movie is not without an occasional highlight.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Good The Sisters Brothers proffers a sort of Edenic vision, comedic but tinged with sadness, of a latter-day El Dorado that's worth basking in, if only as a buffer against the inevitability of its fall.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
It is 1851, and Charlie and Eli Sisters (Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly) are both brothers and assassins, boys grown to men in a savage and hostile world. They have blood on their hands: that of criminals, that of innocents...and they know no state of existence other than being gunmen. The older of the two, introspective Eli (Reilly) rides hard with his younger sibling yet dares to dream of a normal life. The younger of the two, hard-drinking Charlie (Phoenix) has taken charge with gusto as lead man on the duo's assignments. Each increasingly questions, and quibbles with, the other's methods.

The Sisters brothers find themselves on a journey through the Northwest, bringing them to the mountains of Oregon, a dangerous brothel in the small town of Mayfield, and eventually, the Gold Rush land of California - a journey that will test the deadly family ties that bind. But, can it also be the path to rediscovering what remains of their humanity?
