Touching story about family, brothers and revenge.

The plot follows the the progression as four adopted brothers unravel the murder of their mother. This is not an easy task and as the plot thickens and every one is a suspect the plot takes some elegant twists and turns. Even though you have a basic idea of who is the culprit, you will more than once get surprised when some new unexpected info pops up. This works well as you feel safe as you know that the brothers will get their man, but the road getting there is still unknown and unpredictable. Good stuff!

I general the acting is mediocre, but to my surprise Mark Wahlberg actually did a pretty good job playing both a rough badass type and a jovial brother and family man. His performance ranges above average here, I think.

The fist fight, the car chases, the gun fight are all pretty basic Hollywood. They are not over done, but still pretty quite present. I think they work well for the movie.

Despite being a slightly rough action movie, I would recommend you seeing this movie for the bond and banter between the four brothers. That part is both well written and well acted out.
