"This movie doesn't get the credit it deserves. It's classic good versus evil and the people chosen to personify this were well chosen. Jeff Fahey (Sketch Artist) does a credible job at being a caring brother who pulls himself out of the slums at a price. His brother is played by Chad Lowe (Apartment Complex) who delivers as a confused teenager. The evil pursuing these two is masterfully done by one of the best bad guys in the business, Billy Drago. His performance as a gang leader displays his masterful ability to frighten. His performance here will help send his career forward into movies such as "Death Ring" and "Deadly Heros". Every actor starts somewhere and this film did it for Fahey and Drago. Give this film a shot."
If you like Sherilyn Fenn, this is a must see!

"This movie is actually enjoyable! I enjoyed watching the fight scenes in the movie between the two rival gangs. The Trueblood brothers have great parts and little Chad Lowe makes a great first impression. He's the toughest of the two brothers, but holds a special place in your heart. The special effects weren't great compared to newer action films. The characters reminded me David Lynch's characters, especially the evil Billy "Spider" Masters. He had a very creepy part and watching it alone can be quite scary. Ok, so the real reason to see this film, is for Sherilyn Fenn. Her part is acted very well."

"I bought true blood for a dollar at a video store in the mall as a joke. Considering I never heard of Jeff Fahey and Sherilynn Fenn I was pretty sure it was going to be pretty darn bad. However, the plot was entertaining and as 80s as it was it wasn't that bad a movie. If you want to watch a movie about a mixed up kid in a gang, his brother and the woman he loves then true blood is your kind of movie."
