Four Brothers

Four Brothers We went to see "Four Brothers" in the mega theater today.  It has been described as a modern "Sons of Katie Elder".   Well, maybe.  The four brothers were likable in a tough guy, criminal sort of a way - and these were the good guys.


I'd give it C because it was pretty stupid and I didn't see the humor in it.   The NY Times calls it an atmospheric, propulsive and ultimately preposterous melodrama, which sounds right to me.


The setting is Detroit.  The saintly mother of the four boys (two black, two white) took the boys in as foster children and they became a family.  The mother was killed and the boys seek revenge.


But... I still like Mark Wahlberg :-)
