An ok movie, but seemed to lose it way in parts and became a little slow and bogged down, could have shaved 20 minutes off the lengh of time
Not bad for an action/revenge movie.
PRETTY GOOD ACTION MOVIE. VERY AMERICAN in character. All macho behaviour, car chases, guns and bodies everywhere.
I really enjoy a well developed villain and , of course, good triumphing over evil.
A great location, snappy dialogue and acceptable performances can’t make up for a puerile script; that’s the problem with this movie; it’s not credible.
The ubiquitous Hollywood car chases, this time in the ice and snow, are all part of the genre and well done but the storyline is fanciful. Secondly, John Singleton’s direction wavers between a light comedic touch and heavy drama, and while that can be effective, it misses out in ‘Four Brothers’.
Really enjoyed this film. Watched it twice and would watch it again some time. Liked the story and it was well acted/directed,
Surprisingly good film. Felt for the characters. Nice conclusion.
An action movie with heart. Four adopted brothers investigate their foster mother’s murder and take their revenge. It’s completely over-the-top and unrealistic, of course, but very entertaining. Features some great performances.
Bonus Features: Behind-the-scenes featurettes.
The storyline is good, also good actors. Really worth watching and great twist!
what can i say pure brilliance!!!
Not family viewing. Very slow B grade movie to start but then picked up momentum. I was surprised how it evolved & I started to enjoy it.. Even the wife enjoyed it, despite the language ! Of course you must realise it is a "SPAGHETTI WESTERN" set in Detroit, race neutral, cracks in the script but great (violent) action scenes rough brutal justice, police miss the boat that helps the script ! The 4 different brother characters move the movie along by running on emotion. Wahlberg carries the movie. Don't take it to seriously you will enjoy the Good bad & the ugly ! Love revenge movies.
A lot of noise and unlikely gun action (eg blasting holes in brick walls with machine guns) made this a disappointing film for me.
Whilst the acting was good and some of the dialogue entertaining, the gratuitous violence prevents this film from making my favourite movie list.
I didn't expect much from this but i really enjoyed watching, good acting, good story. kept me interested the whole way.
i wasnt interested in this movie, but very glad i watched it. unexpectadly funny, good story and you get attached to the characters quickly. good movie, definately recommend.
I really love this movie it is excellent, with all great actors. Exciting from start to finish what more could you want.
Great movie, standout performance by Wahlberg, heading a strong cast. A urban revenge western (reminded my a bit of The Sons Of katie Elder) but much, much tougher.
Good movie - better than I expected. It wasn't just about the action, violence and revenge it had a strong human conection aspect to it too. Four Brothers who stick together, fight together to uphold the memory of their mother.
What an awesome movie. Certainly not as predictable as one might think. Loved all the characters especially Mark Wahlberg, what a great actor he is.
Excellent movie. A lot of surprise action. Must see.
Okay, too violent for me.
I too was surprised by this movie. I really enjoyed it. It had humour, good acting and unpredictable twists and turns. Mark Whalberg was excellent. If you have brothers (or sisters), you'll enjoy the symbolic nature of this flick.
If you like violence and little plot, then this is the film for you.
Great acting and good story
I was surprised at how good this movie was. Plenty of twists and turns and an unpredictable ending.
Where was Detroit police in this absurb movie? Always turning up after the latest massacre by culprits already known to them - its amazing and yet wafer thin. Oh and yes in case you didnt know, violence does solve everything.
Revenge is a dish best served cold. The whole cast is excellent. It was hard to turn away from.
