Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Blood Ties

Blood Ties is at-first too familiar. It lacks momentum in its first hour that doesn’t have an engine for its tone to create a greater dramatic force and emotion, until the halfway point. It’s quite plain to watch during its early plot and character-building scenes, until the few action scenes and the damaged brother relationship enlivens it a bit. Great final scene!
