Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Suffers from a crippling lack of back story and characters whose relationships are fraught with unexplained complexity. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Aug 8, 2013

Rotten: "Blood" feels perfunctory, needing something besides fussy plotting to jolt it to life. – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Aug 8, 2013

Fresh: While hardly reinventing the wheel, "Blood" works best as a tone poem, with unspoken passages detailing a hard life. – Jordan Hoffman, New York Daily News, Aug 8, 2013

Fresh: "Blood" may not be wholly original, but it is effective. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Aug 9, 2013

To hate like this is to be happy forever!

Let's face it…tons of articles, books, commentaries, interviews, films, etc. have all covered the storied rivalry that is Carolina-Duke. This one stands out from the crowd covering the WHOLE experience…the one intangible that you can't adequately explain to outsiders until the feel it for themselves. I enjoyed every second of this documentary…except those when Duke was winning…or really anything about THAT school.



This is the most complete look into any rivalry that I have ever seen. This movie not only tells you about the history of the rivalry, but it enables you to go inside the rivalry on game day. I have been a fan of the rivalry for many years, but this movie told me things about the rivalry that I didn't know. This movie is simply fantastic and every sports fan should rent or purchase this movie today!

I don't understand all of the positive reviews

I am a huge fan of this rivalry and I have read Will Blythe's terrific book on the subject, but this documentary is simply terrible. 90% of it is random fan after random fan telling you over and over again how much they like either Duke or UNC (and dislike the other) and how wonderful the rivalry is. Obviously the vast majority of viewers share these opinions already, and this should be the jumping off point for the movie, not its entire subject matter for 90 minutes. There is very little footage or analysis of the actual basketball games themselves and very few interviews with the actual players from those games. The documentary also barely scratches the surface of the rivalries' history or the reasons it is so heated. It seemed like the filmmaker didn't want to delve into anything challenging or controversial, so there is no depth to the portrayal of his subject matter and the movie winds up being one long bore (and that is saying something if you knew what a fan I am of the topic). I don't know what film everybody else was watching, but I recommend you skip it and go read Blythe's book instead.
