review by
Mike Haberfelner

It should have been a very easy job for the Mason brothers Ren (Keith Sutliff), Jesse (Brandon Sean Pearson) and Orion (Michael Ryan Whelan) and their buddy Gage (Matthew Webb): Storm the bank at nighttime, open the vault, grab the money, and out again, all doable in under three minutes - if they wouldn't have run into some other thugs who had the exact same idea, which ultimately resulted in a shoot-out ...

Now Orion's dead, and the gang collectively come to the conclusion it can't be coincidence that two gangs of crooks had the idea to rob the place in the exact same timeframe - so they must have been set up by somebody, and the other crew was merely trying to get their hands on the loot without having to go through the trouble of having to open the vault. Thing is, only very few people knew that the Masons & Co would even pull the job that night, that means there must be a snitch very close to them, maybe even within the gang, or how about their silent partner Fredrick (Julien Cesario). Fortunately they know a fellow crook (Tim Park) who's good at finding things out, and he soon provides them with two of the guys (Gregory Gordon, Pelé Kizy) from the other crew. Now naturally, on one hand Ren, Jesse and Gage would love to just slaughter them - but due to familial bonds, they feel compelled to first torture the name of the snitch out of them - but the longer they keep them alive and the longer they stay put in their hiding place, the more vulnerable they are to all sorts of crooks (and the police, theoretically) wanting to get their hands on the loot, as soon a few too many people know about the heist ...

 

In pure structure, The Mason Brothers might seem quite a bit reminiscent of Reservoir Dogs, also being about a failed heist - that's never shown - a bunch of crooks holed up in a warehouse, and frantically trying to find the snitch in their midst. But there's where the similarities end, as The Mason Brothers is a movie that stands very well on its own legs, telling a story that differs from Reservoir Dogs in pretty much every other detail, making its protagonists more of the working class of gangsterdom, and using its occasional flashbacks in a very refreshing manner. And thanks to a tight script, a subtle directorial effort that still allows the occasional violent outburst, and a strong ensemble cast, this movie works very well on pretty much every level.
