Four Brothers

Extracts from this document...


Four Brothers They Came Back To Bury Their Mother And Her Killers . . . From the director of "Boyz N the Hood" and "Baby Boy" and the producer of the new hit movie "Hustle and Flow" comes "Four Brothers". Truly Refreshing Four Brothers is the new John Singleton flick which is based on mid 70's action productions such as: "The Dukes of Hazzard", "Starsky & Hutch, and "Kojak". It is a typical action movie containing strong language and at least one gun blazing every five minutes ... Thank God for action thrillers as this one is truly refreshing. It may not be as slick as Singleton's remake of "Shaft" but it's probably a better movie on the whole, in fact there is nothing particularly special about the movie and that's what makes the movie so good. ...read more.


Three of the four brothers return back to Detroit and re-unite with Jeremiah to bury their mother. The brothers soon discover that their mother's murder was not an unplanned job and was carried out by two hit men. The four men violently interrogate numerous amounts of people to find out who's the person behind their mother's murder. The person behind the murder is a kingpin mobster named Victor Sweet (Chiwetel Ejiofor). Sweet's such a nasty piece of work that not only does he force a henchman (Jernard Burks) to get on the floor and eat like a dog but he also makes the henchman's girlfriend do the same. The movie takes a mammoth twist when events turn sour for Victor Sweet; this is so uplifting that the hairs on the back of your neck are sure to stand up. ...read more.


The movie ends with a show down on a frozen Michigan lake. I loved this part particularly when Bobby appears from no where. He strides through the snow, battling the wind, to put Victor Sweet where he belongs. Verdict Four Brothers doesn't particularly have a thought provoking plot as it is relatively predictable. This movie's strengths are: its impeccable characters and superb acting along with a good storyline and of course a great beginning, middle and end. I would advise anybody to see this film. Although not a film for children it is indeed a family film. It gives a strong sense of togetherness and closeness between the brothers which truly is uplifting. I give this film 9/10. It has an excellent storyline, tremendous acting, superb characters and of course some first-rate action scenes. This really is a must see! BY MICHAEL MCDONNELL [Word Count: 734 Words] ...read more.
