Four BrothersDirector: John Singleton, Mark Wahlberg, Tyrese Gibson, André Benjamin
Four men come together to find out how and why the woman who raised them was killed in this hard-edged urban drama from director John Singleton. Short-tempered Bobby (Mark Wahlberg), struggling musician Jack (Garrett Hedlund), streetwise Angel (Tyrese Gibson), and hard-working Jeremiah (Andre Benjamin) are four guys who don't appear to have much in common, in terms of either race or temperament. However, these men have one very important bond -- all four were adopted and raised by the same woman (Fionnula Flanagan), and they all love her as a mother, and respect one another as brothers. When their mother is killed during a robbery at a grocery store, the four brothers come together for the funeral, but when they don't get straight answers about what happened to her, they begin looking into the crime themselves. The deeper they dig into the case, the more the brothers begin to suspect that the shooting wasn't an accident, and that powerful and unexpected forces were involved. Four Brothers marked one of the first starring roles for Andre Benjamin, better known as Andre 3000 of the top selling hip-hop group OutKast.

John Singleton, the inventor of the urban drama, is back with a major comeback and this time it's about revenge. The Mercer Brothers, unconventional family to say the least, take on the worst elements of the town till they get to the final murderer in this great vengeance-cum-satisfaction film after their mother is killed. The West is back in Detroit.
I loved this movie. Mark Wahlberg delivered his best performance yet and the rest of the cast was just as good. Great plot.
This movie is absolutely fantastic. Great plot and acting. I'll recommend this movie to anyone interest in a great and exciting film.

i think this is a very cool movie and, i also think it is giving us a very cool message about how we have to stay together with are family know matter what.
I loved this movie! It has so humor, action, brotherly love, it's awesome. It's just so amazing how they show what one person can do for so much for you. How one person has such an impact on you. The actors were amazing. Mark Wahlberg, a different role for him, but did awesome. Tyrese did a very good job as well!! I was shocked when Andre Benjamin was in this, but he did so great. And Garrett Hedlund, I loved him in this. His character was my favorite. Overall, this movie was amazing!
Four Brothers was a really good movie. Mark Wahlberg did a great job in it. It had tons of action that will blow you away from start to finish. I'm going to get this movie for my birthday and my dad is not going to stop me! Overall, I'll give this move an A+.
Like misogyny, elder abuse, ripped off plot lines and a high body count? This film is for you!! 4 brothers avenge their adopted mothers death by doing EXACTLY the opposite of what she would have wanted, by gunning down everyone even remotely connected to her killing. By murdering everyone in their way they proved themselves to be exactly the way the world viewed them, thugs. What a tribute to this woman who tried to show them another way. And what's with the roughing up of the sweet old man that she was seeing? Yikes. There are FAR better action movies out there.
this is my number one movie. in my 17 years of life, i have never witnessed anything better. i love it. the meaning of love,life, and brotherhood has never been so strongly advised in any other movie than this one. i love the way the bond of the 4 adopted brothers is never broken. as the movie goes on you feel as though you are right next to the brothers, being part of them, trying to find out who did this, yet, when the brother jack dies you can't help but feel angry, sad, and such anxiety from one scene. from the tears you shed to the moments where you just cant help but laugh its a all around spectacular movie. filled with hope and love, its bound to get your standing ovation.
