Four Brothers ★★½

The film tries to be a cool, macho revenge story, but it is only partially successful. Certain story elements are too unbelievable, and it is hard to sympathize with the brothers. Mark Wahlberg, Tyrese Gibson, André Benjamin, and Garrett Hedlund are well cast as the four brothers, with Gibson’s performance being one notch above the others; however, the early scenes of the brothers bonding feel somewhat artificial. The cinematography effectively captures the cold winter weather. "Four Brothers" is flawed but at least moderately entertaining.
