Critic Reviews for First Round Down

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

There's a nice twist midway through, but the film never quite comes together.

While the film has a lot going on, there's also a lot to like about it. As convoluted as the twisting plotlines are, it's easy to follow, and the action pushes us through the film from start to finish.

Tim Tucker, a pouty Ryan Gosling type played by Dylan Bruce, and his goofy Seth Rogen type sidekick Bobby (Rob Ramsay) get involved in humourless hi-jinx and armed robbery.

April 27, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Clever ideas -- ripping off "Grosse Pointe Blank" is the cleverest -- get lost in this slow, off-tone Canadian action comedy.

April 12, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Brett and Jason Butler have been making movies for a few years now, and they know what they like: tough guys standing around peacocking and insulting each other, and occasionally landing a joke.

Audience Reviews for First Round Down


The Brett Brothers of Canada present this film less as entertainment than as a primer to aspiring filmmakers. Well, not really. But while, yes, you can do everything yourself, it's much better to have help, professional help, lots of it, and in just about every department, or otherwise your work will show the lack. This is surprisingly good work, missing the mark by "just about that much" for the entire length of the thing. I actually wanted to dislike it but realized I couldn't. That doesn't mean you should watch it though.
