5.0 out of 5 stars An Action/Suspense Movie with Substance October 12, 2005
By Patrick
Format:DVD
I remember catching the trailer for this and being intrigued by the cast and the plot. After leaving the theater, the movie still hasn't left me. The acting, top to bottom, was exceptional, especially the chemistry between 'the brothers'. The action scenes were incredible with some of the most awesome cars chases and shoot-out scenes I've seen. John Singletion is definitely an excellet and still-growing director who has outdone himself with 'Four Brothers'. Why are their comparisons between 'Boyz In Tha Hood' and 'Four brothers' ? Two totally different movies. BITH is a coming of age movie, FB is about bonds and sacrifice. Well worth a multiple look and a must have if you're into action and/or crime dramas whether you're a teenager or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vengeance Will Be Theirs... January 20, 2006
Format:DVD
Never underestimate the bonds of family. That could easily have been the tagline for this terrific revenge/murder mystery. With "Four Brothers", director John Singleton (2000's "Shaft" remake) takes this mantra to the extreme, showing that no matter what, when the chips are down you can always count on your family to watch your back.

After their saintly foster mother (Fionnula Flanagan) is murdered in a convenience store, her adopted sons, two white and two black, come home to pay their respects. Three out of the four brothers, Jack (Garrett Hedlund), Angel (Tyrese Gibson), and Jeremiah (Andre Benjamin), are content to believe that what happened was just a case of wrong place/wrong time. However, oldest brother Bobby (Mark Wahlberg) believes that they should at least try to find who did this, and deliver some punishment. In their search for answers, the brothers discover that their mom was not just a random killing, but a planned execution that is tied into a vast conspiracy ranging from the Detroit police, to city council, to a local drug kingpin. Now, the brothers are in a fight to not only bring down those responsible, but also walk away with their lives intact.

The gritty, hard edged violence of "Four Brothers" gives the movie a modern urban western tone, that is nicely balanced by the brothers' bond to one and other. John Singleton was careful to show that though the oldest brother, Bobby, was hot-headed and wanted vengeance on the killers, words of wisdom from his other brothers prevailed. Causing him to stay his hand, until all responsible were discovered, and the conspiracy revealed. A well-written story that takes time to allow the audience connect with the brothers, and feel their deep pain, before engaging in the revenge arc of the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Effective, well-made drama August 15, 2005
Bobby Mercer (Mark Wahlberg) drives into his childhood Detroit neighborhood, returning home to bury his adopted mother, Evelyn (Fionnula Flanagan, "The Others"). At the funeral, he meets up with two of his three other brothers; Jeremiah (Andre Benjamin of Outkast fame), now a family and business man, and Jack (Garret Hedlund). Evelyn was the foster mother for hundreds of kids and adopted Bobby and his brothers when no one would have them. After the funeral, they return to her house and find their fourth sibling, Angel (Tyrese Gibson), sitting on the porch. Soon, they learn that Evelyn's death, during a convenience store robbery, may have been more than a simple case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. An old childhood friend, Green (Terrence Howard, "Hustle and Flow", "Crash"), now a detective, warns them against taking matters into their own hands. But take matters they do, and they begin to investigate, leading them closer and closer to a local gangster, Victor Sweet (Chiwetel Ejiofor, "Dirty Pretty Things", "Melinda and Melinda").

When you read the synopsis of "Four Brothers", or hear about it, each of the elements seems to say "Huh? That won't work. That can't work." But combined, and married to good acting, good writing and good directing by John Singleton, the film is a surprisingly effective dramatic tale.

The key to the film's success is that it is R-rated. I don't necessarily need to see an R-rated film every time I go to the movies, but if the film is about four men trying to find the person who killed their mother, on the mean streets of Detroit, an R-rating will allow the filmmaker to be more realistic. In this age of PG-13 horror and action films, something gets lost. In a horror film, I expect to see some blood.

4.0 out of 5 stars REVENGE IS SWEETER THAN A MOTOWN CLASSIC April 6, 2006
Format:DVD
Much has been said about the resemblance of "Four Brothers", and the old John Wayne film, "The Sons of Katie Elder", but I'm not going to compare the two. I'm not going to say this is the gritty urban version of the mid-'60's shoot-'em-up John Wayne western. I'm not going to say it. THE HELL I'M NOT GOING TO SAY IT! Even the four brothers swagger and demeanor, their sibling regard for one another, and their distinct characters, while poking around dangerous city streets looking for the killer of their adopted mother, suggest the actors studied that classic western intently. Give them cowboy hats, a few cows roaming around, some six-guns at their side, and you have, "The Sons of Katie Elder", in leather and jeans. And that's fine because "Four Brothers" is as entertaining, as wholesome and nobly violent, as the pistol-packing template that inspired it. You come to believe in this brooding male family unit, and the Motown classics soundtrack, and other soul and rock music sprinkled throughout, (apparently Mom was a big Temptations fan), gives the film a cool '70's feel, like The Sons of Katie Elder meets Shaft.

Movies about Brother bonds
Sheesh - it has been 3 years since you posted this so I hope you see my response to your query! There is a movie starring Patrick Swayze, Liam Neeson and I think Bill Paxton where they play hillbilly brothers out to right a wrong done to their family. Can't remember the name right now but I will... Read More
