Trivia

Ethan Hawke, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck all turned down the part of Bobby. The part eventually went to Mark Wahlberg. Ethan Hawke loved the script but could not commit to it because of scheduling conflicts. Matt Damon and Ben Affleck both said no because they found the script to be "ultra-violent". See more »

Quotes

Evelyn Mercer: Ok, Darnell, so the candy just happened to jump into your pocket, huh? Well I don't think so. Samir's going to call the police right now. Samir, the police!
Darnell: Please don't call the police, man, please!
Evelyn Mercer: That's what happens when you shoplift. There's consequences.
Darnell: But it's just some damn candy! I don't wanna go to jail!

Crazy Credits

The Paramount logo in the beginning has snow falling upon it. The end credits show scenes of each of the brother's past. Bobby is seen fighting in a hockey game and has the front of his teeth knocked out. Jeremiah is seen leading a worker's protest outside of a factory. Angel is seen trying to buy an airline ticket with a stolen credit card (once the clerk finds out, Angel runs away). Jack is seen playing the guitar and singing in a band (he waves his pierced tongue at his fans). See more »

Four Brothers = EXCELLENT
13 August 2005 | by (Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

OK, I'm a girl who normally loves "chick flicks" and comedies, so when I had nothing to do this evening and decided to go see a movie with my parents, (I thought they were seeing "Deuce Bigalow: European Gigalo"...but alas I was incorrect.) and discovered we were going to see "Four Brothers", I was a little upset. I'm normally not one for movies that are seemingly all about people getting revenge and lots of killing and fighting. I dunno..I'm not one for the action/drama type...unless it's a horror movie, and then I'm definitely there. Anyways, I was genuinely surprised at how good this movie ended up being. Each of the four brothers gave an amazing performance. Andre Benjamin showed that he's not only a talented singer, but a talented actor as well.

The movie was much better than I had expected. I laughed, and I (almost) cried. It went through a range of so many different emotions and events in the lives of the four troubled men, all adopted when they were children by one amazing woman who became their world. I don't really know what else to say without spoiling the movie, so I'm going to just leave you with all of what I've said, and the fact that I would most definitely recommend this movie to anyone and everyone.
