I Loved this movie

Acting was awesome, if you like action, horror, comedy and not in to tear-jerker movies ********** this one. If you want to feel touchy feely and like emotional movies, this one is for you.

This was one of those well acted movies that you are glad you watched it, but you don't care to watch again. Just too disturbing. Worth a first look!

Good movie. They all did a good job acting. It was great seeing Tobey lose his mind.

I am so excited for this movie to come out! I check it almost everyday! Anybody ********** gets into a Tobey Maguire film would see how in character he gets, truly a gifted man. Your doing wonderful Tobey! Keep up the amazing work! :)

A smart, well-meaning project -- never quite pulls itself together. It has a vague, half-finished feeling, as if it had not figured out what it was trying to do. Which may amount to a kind of realism -- an accurate reflection of where we are in Afghanistan. Full Review

Sheridan seems as conflicted as the Cahills about their virtues and failings. The underlying themes -- love, loyalty, decency, duty, honor, betrayal -- that screenwriter David Benioff will use to both bind and break this family seem to bedevil him more than inspire him this time out. Full Review
In exploring the complicated nature of family bonds, Brothers is thought-provoking. The wounds inflicted by the cruelty of a troubled parent can prove as painful as battle scars. Full Review
Portman doesn't overact or underact; she just stands around with whatever the appropriate expression for the scene seems to be on her sweet, pretty, childlike face. If there's something going on behind that face, I neither know nor care what it is, which means that long stretches of Brothers involving her character's interiority struck me as dramatically inert.

Brothers is arguably the most successful remake of a foreign film since Martin Scorsese reworked "Infernal Affairs" into "The Departed" and won the Oscar. Full Review
