While hardly reinventing the wheel, Blood works best as a tone poem, with unspoken passages detailing a hard life.


Village Voice by Chris Packham

Blood wants to be a Greek tragedy about family loyalties, guilt, and the fall of a dynasty, but the characters never manage to connect with one another, separated by gulfs of melodramatic angst and the plot demands of a boringly unspooled police procedural.


Slant Magazine by Drew Hunt

Themes of family ties, obsession, and morality, so dramatically realized in Conviction, are gracelessly and shapelessly strewn together here.


The A.V. Club by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

This move is both redundant and counterproductive because it weakens one of the screenplay’s central conceits — the way Bettany’s guilt is shared and experienced by other characters.


The Dissolve by Noel Murray

All four of the main performances are so strong that they deserve more space to develop and intertwine. Instead, at times, Blood plays like one long “previously on” montage for the series that inspired it.


The Telegraph by Tim Robey

The film’s family-saga pretensions and bombastically overdone characterisation keep hobbling its better elements.
