I think this is a plagiarism in at least of 70% of another movie
12 January 2014 | by angelvelasquezSee all my reviews

I've watched hermano before this movie (Four Brothers)..

When I researched I realized that 4 brothers came out first than hermano, the argument is the same, the story is sort of the same too but in different context, Hermano is too similar to the 4 brothers movie with 2 brothers instead of 4 and based in a slum of Caracas instead of a slum in the States..

The one part that is different is the end so .. that's why I consider this is a 70% instead 100% of plagiarism... shame on you guys, I used to be proud of this movie until I realized isn't an original idea, and doesn't deserve the rate that it haves.

Watch the two movies and then make your own conclusions.
