Four Brothers (2005)

This is the story of four brothers: Bobby, Angel, Jeremiah and Jack Mercer (Mark Wahlberg, Tyrese Gibson, André Benjamin and Garrett Hedlund), all previously troublesome teens adopted by the former social worker and sweetest women on Earth - Evelyn Mercer (Fionnula Flanagan). Terrence Howard plays a part as cop, and Chiwetel Ejiofor the big cheese. The sweetest woman on Earth is now dead, and the brothers full-grown citizens.

The plot? The brothers come back to Detroit to attend their mom's funeral - she's been killed in a heist gone wrong, yet when they start doing their investigations it turns out there's more to the robbery than meets the eye. It soon moves to inner conflicts, crooked cops, a shootout, and ultimately... vengeance.

It's crazy, charming and direct. A cold (more so because of the snow) down-to-Earth story of four brothers mashing their way through Detroit slime to get some of their own justice. The plot seems a bit cliche, maybe, but the movie is all but that, with authentic action sequences and a cast with plenty of character. It has some emotional moments, along with plenty of conflict. Great cast. Great watch.

    oh cool you (re)-watched it! probably my favorite Mark Wahlberg film. A predictable plot, but good action, acting, and has that classic hood movie vibe.

    My favorite of his is probably The Big Hit, but yeah, this one's great. That sums it up. Spot on. Like dalmatian.
