Takeshi "Beat" Kitano (Fireworks [Hana-Bi], Sonatine) literally explodes in a blaze of bullets and a flurry of wild action in his first English-language film. Also starring the incredibly talented Omar Epps (Love and Basketball) and Masayo Kato (Godzilla), BROTHER is one of the coolest, wildest, most intense thrill rides you've ever taken! A yakuza gangster (Kitano) is exiled to Los Angeles after his crime boss is murdered in a Tokyo gang war. Arriving in L.A. with a big bag of money and a really bad attitude, he hooks up with his half-brother, the leader of a small-time drug ring. Together with a local street hustler (Epps). the brothers declare war on the other local drug trafficers and ignite the bloodiest, dirtiest, nastiest power struggle the mean streets of L.A. have ever seen.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: There is too much hollow bloodshed in Brother, and the characters are stereotypically flat.
