8 out of 10

not an action movie! a heart felt drama that had me(yes me) in tears. there is action at the end, but that wasnt even needed. this great drama is about jackie helping his retarded brother through thick and thin or something like that. bring some tissues and dont see it with the guys, cause its a sad one.
