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!
Please don't call the police, man, please!
That's what happens when you shoplift. There's consequences.
But it's just some damn candy! I don't wanna go to jail!
Well you can probably get away with stealing sometimes, Darnell, but sooner or later you're gonna get caught. Is that the way you want to lead your life?
I happen ...

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 »
A refreshing change to what is normally coming out today
I had been scoping this movie since it was called "Untitled Mark Wahlberg Project'. Being directed by John Singleton and starring Mark Wahlberg it looked promising. I knew I wanted to see it after reading 5/5 reviews and seeing entertaining trailers of it. Eventually I saw it for a friends's birthday party, and I was impressed!
A standout thing in this movie is that it perfectly combines the action, comedy and drama genres together. At times it can have you laughing out loud, others it can have you quite sad and on the edge of your seat in excitement viewing the great action scenes.
The four lead actors do a great job. Mark Wahlberg plays a character which is different from what he normally plays and he pulls it off well. Andre Benjamin (or Andre 3000 from OutKast) does a great job too. He is definitely much better than just the usual rapper turned actor.
The story is great. It has a much thicker plot than what would be expected from a revenge movie. In fact, that is another standout thing, the original storyline.
Overall this is definitely a movie you should see. A refreshing change from the comedy remakes we normally see coming out of the theater. One that will be on my to buy list.
