  1. POMAC's rating of the film The Brother from Another Planet

  2. Ethan's rating of the film The Brother from Another Planet

    Joe Morton is nothing short of brilliant here and gives the performance of his career in this exquisite piece of science fiction cinema with a little bit of social commentary thrown in for good measure. Also, Sayles and Strathairn are badass as the Men in Black.

  3. Scott Dubin's rating of the film The Brother from Another Planet

    Slow paced, but the last 15 minutes were great and I rated it higher for that reason.  A black skinned alien crashes in New York pursued by two white skinned aliens.  Kinda slow and meandering as the protagonist tries to blend in with humans while the white skinned aliens try to hunt him down, but it really came together in the end.

  4. bryanvmh's rating of the film The Brother from Another Planet

    Excels at making the mundane look and feel foreign

  5. Lutka's rating of the film The Brother from Another Planet

    Excellent! Funny, well written with great characters, even the smallest one was interesting! A film dealing with a subject of what means to be a human.

  6. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Brother from Another Planet

    A bit silly, but you have to love Joe.

  7. killgill's rating of the film The Brother from Another Planet

    knowing that this was one of Morton's first roles is amazing, a necessarily nuanced performance and quality special effects considering the budget and the year

  11. peli-sopher's rating of the film The Brother from Another Planet

    Dragged on unnecessarily at some points, but still a very interesting film that I would recommend.

  12. film_lies101's rating of the film The Brother from Another Planet

    Way too long with many scenes that are inconsistent, yeah I know the budget was a few thousand dollars. Prime reason it should have a short instead. DAMN BROTHA!
