    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    What holds us are the actors, including Terrence Howard as a cop who grew up with the brothers. show more

    Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle

    More action directors should include scenes such as the Mercers' extended Thanksgiving dinner, which fleshes out the bond between the brothers without using too many words. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    Easily the best 1975 B-movie made in 2005, Four Brothers is a raucously entertaining vigilante film. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    If you can overcome the graphic nature of its casual violence, it is a lot of fun. The banter among the brothers is well-written and has a genuine fraternal feel to it. And the chases and shootouts have a fresh malevolence to them. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    If you take any of this seriously, you are not going to enjoy the movie very much. But as an absurd riff on baadasssss gangsta movies, Four Brothers has an undeniable visceral kick. show more

    Four Brothers works as an urban thriller, if not precisely as a model of logic. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    A faux-low-budget revenge thriller, pure and simple. There's nothing special about it, and that's what's refreshing. show more

    Chris Kaltenbach Baltimore Sun

    True, John Ford and John Wayne did this stuff a lot better back in the day, but they're not around anymore. John Singleton is, and it's nice to see someone caring enough to keep the tradition alive. show more
