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.

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".

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

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

An entertaining, escapist, not particularly ambitious ride.

A stylish revenge flick with A-picture performances and direction that obscure its B-picture soul.

John Singelton proves the Western mythos can work just as effectively in an urban setting - that those hoary old cliches can find new life in the hands of a capable filmmaker.

Don't expect to see John Wayne's swagger in the urbanized rendition of "The Sons of Katie Elder."

Singleton's style over substance approach is the right way to tell Four Brothers' vengeful story

As Hollywood-ized as the details are, the overall picture feels independent and honest.
