The Mason Brothers Trailer

"This is what we got. It's a bank job, and everybody's gunna be going in on this one." A trailer has arrived for a film titled The Mason Brothers, the feature directorial debut of filmmaker Keith Sutliff originally hailing from Tampa, Florida. The crime thriller is about a group of brothers + bank robbers who try to pull off a clean heist, but things go wrong. Starring Brandon Pearson, Matthew Webb, Michael Whelan, Julien Cesario, Chris Park, and Nazo Bravo. It's clear this is an homage to Tarantino and to Reservoir Dogs specifically, but it also seems to be inspired by Christopher Nolan's films, too. Doesn't look that good.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Keith Sutliff's The Mason Brothers, from YouTube (via BD):

A perfect getaway is a clean getaway. A group of outlaws attempt to reveal their brothers killer from a neighboring gang after being set up during a bank heist. The Mason Brothers is both written and directed by American filmmaker Keith Sutliff, making his feature directorial debut after a number of short films previously. Sutliff earned a degree in Criminal Justice before moving to Los Angeles to pursue filmmaking, inspired by films like The Untouchables, Reservoir Dogs, and Drive. This film hasn't premiered at any film festivals. Adler will release The Mason Brothers in select theaters starting April 14th this spring. Anyone?

    No. I think calling this an homage is even a stretch. Straight to the bottom of the bargain bin for this one.

      Right you are. It's the way I felt, and still do, of Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs when compared to Kubrick's great 1956 film The Killing. This botching a theft thing is old hat and none of them to this day compare to Kubrick's. In my humble opinion, of course. Plus it had the great Sterling Hayden starring in it for Kubrick.

        I've not seen The Killing. I've seen The Killers with Burt Lancaster (which was fantastic in it's own right). I'll have to seek out The Killing =)

          Yea, check it out, Raw. It's Kubrick, man! The Killers with Burt Lancaster and Ava Gardner was a good film, but I actually liked the later version in 1964 with the great Lee Marvin and Angie Dickerson. This version was directed by Don Siegel who directed the original Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Crime in the Streets with a young John Cassettes, and Hell Is For Heroes with a young Steve McQueen, which he was great in and it's still one of my favorite war pictures. If you haven't seen Hell Is For Heroes it's a must see, Raw. Plus Kubrick's The Killing to, of course. Hell Is For Heroes is a bit better than all the above mentioned, in my humble opinion.

            Bo, man, we need you to fill our film history department over here with good films. This listing is just great. Although I saw some of mentioned ones, I think I also forgot some of them. A good reminders, definitely. Anyway, just great post. Cheers ...
          • Bo
            Thank you, shiboleth. Very kind of you to say as such on this day because..this, March 1st, is my 71st. birthday! How about that? So, having been involved in and interested in films since I was 22 yrs. old I'd say I've got a familiarity with the history of Thanks again for your kind words, shiboleth. And cheers back at you.
          • shiboleth
            Well, Bo then I must respond and wish you best for your birthday. May be just another among many to come and let them be full of goodness and health. Other than that, it's obviously that films filled up your life so why wouldn't that be noticed. I always sound, when I often talk to people or friends about films, like I am describing some kind of film history. It's a genuine pleasure to have someone here who does that to me and the others. Cheers Bo ...

            Nice to hear more kind words on this day especially. Thank you, shiboleth. Take care and let us hope some good films are coming down the pipeline for our enjoyment, eh? Peace.
    "Alright guys, this is what we got..." Punched out.

    This has a rather home-made look and I don't mean that in a positive way. The trailer is not capable of interesting me. Nothing happens during the first minute, and in the second minute, predictable things happen. This might only be worth your time if you are a fan of one of those four actors of whom I have never heard before.
  • How much would you get these days if you robbed a bank these days? They'd be better getting getting into cyber crime, way easier.

    Highly derivative nonsense ...
