The squibs in the Mercer house shoot-out were originally meant to be more bloody, but due to a mix up with wire working, they appear tame. See more »
Even though the film is set in Detroit, Michigan, at the beginning of the film the close-up shot of Bobby's car shows New York state registration and inspection stickers on the windshield. See more »
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!

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 »
On the MTV, VH1, Paramount Network and airline versions, the shower scene where a few guys take this was blurred. See more »
I've always loved revenge movies, and this one fits the bill because it has four brothers trying to find out the truth of their mother's murder. The four brothers are all superb in their roles, as adopted brothers from foster care that went their separate ways, who come home to find out who killed their mother and why. The 8 minute AOL trailer on the movies sold me. Also superb is Terrence Howard as a Detroit cop who doesn't trust his own who is desperately trying to find out what happened himself. The plot is well executed through twists and turns. Mark Wahlberg just gets better and better. He was great in "Three Kings," and he is better here.
