Feels like a nervous student's heavily footnoted thesis film.

Four Brothers tries to mix the revenge quest with the drama of the four boys finding and learning about each other again. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

[Director] Singleton is back in rare form with a very good remake...

...a welcome throwback to the sort of over-the-top actioners that were prevalent twenty years ago.

Adds a uniquely repugnant concept to the notion of dysfunctional, in what seems like a warped underlying fraternal creed of, a family that preys together stays together.

A healty mixture of action, humor and of the most sheerly enjoyable popcorn movies of the summer.

Formula filmmaking through and through, but it's brought home with just enough grit, gusto, and emotion to keep you suitably entertained.

I liked the film's first act, which consisted of lots of snow and character development, I enjoyed its second act, which started to get into the nitty-gritty of its revenge plot, but I only tolerated its final act.

Tight and resolutely genre specific, Four Brothers delivers what as a Hollywood product it promises and holds our attention with its classy craftsmanship

Mostly enjoyable thriller with strong performances and a couple of terrific action sequences, though it loses a star for its nose-dive into bad movie territory towards the end.

"Good to see Singleton returning to his roots. Wahlberg and co-stars Tyrese Gibson and Andre Benjamin give good performances".

Swiftly dissolves into a litany of brutally sadistic acts knotted together by a feeble whodunnit plot.

O roteiro supera as expectativas do gênero, revelando-se bem amarrado e infinitamente mais complexo do que parece a princípio.

The only performance that kind of works is the one from Chiwetel Ejiofor as the central bad guy.

The brothers take a few moments in reflective nostalgia, then springboard into a film of head banging revenge.

An over-violent and under-sincere story that strays from justice past revenge and into mindless vigilantism.

As an action movie, it also has some fine moments. But I'd have preferred it if Singleton had jettisoned the B-movie elements and concentrated on the brothers' relationships.

Singleton seems to struggle to keep it under control, finally giving up in the end and letting a dopey Hollywood finale overrun the film.

At its best this is grade-A pulp from the land of Elmore Leonard.

It's rare that you catch an acclaimed mainstream filmmaker dropping all pretenses and giving in to the desire to make pure pulp.
