The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Sometimes you have to create your OWN legacy! Kyle (Mishon Ratliff) and Quentin “Q” Cooper (Richard John Reliford) have been raised to carry on their family’s proud legacy in the fraternity Delta Gamma Gamma. But Kyle is about to surprise his brother and disappoint his over-bearing father (Darrin Dewitt Henson) by pledging another fraternity, causing a huge family rift that no one saw coming. Now the brothers try to tackle newfound college life…but this time as rivals.
"Frat Brothers" centers on Kyle and Quentin, two brothers on their way to college. Their over-bearing father who raised them thinks they should follow in the family tradition by joining the Delta Gamma Gamma fraternity. Quentin seems to follow along with what his dad says most of the time but Kyle is a bit more rebellious and is not sure that is the right choice for him which causes problems within the family unit.
"Frat Brothers" is an example of "never judge a book by its cover." When I received the film for review I immediately figured this was going to be one of those very low budget films just going off the DVD artwork which is not very impressive but I am sure glad that my feelings were wrong. As it turned out the film is a thoughtful and engaging drama about the difference between loyalty and family. Just because someone wants to blaze their own trail doesn't mean they are being disloyal. That is pretty much the story here as Kyle attempts to figure his own path in life. Sure he is a bit confused and maybe just a little self centered at tmes but he certainly has the right to choose what he wants to do and which fraternity regardless of his father's wishes.
The film has some excellent drama, a little bit of humor to lighten the mood at times and it has a nice bit of romance and some cool dance move as well. Another thing that made the film so good was the acting. The entire cast did a great job playing their roles but I have to point out Mishon Ratliff and Richard John Reliford who are both terrific as Kyle and Quentin. Everyone gave realistic and believable performances in the film which really helps the audience to connect to the characters.
"Frat Brothers" is a thought-provoking and engaging film that gets your attention right from the start, I highly enjoyed it and I think most will find it as entertaining as I did. The film is available on DVD with Special Features that include:
