Four Brothers on TNT

Four Brothers on TNT. If there is such a thing as a complex “revenge” film, then this one qualifies. It begins as a simple story of four brothers who return home after their foster mother is killed in an apparent robbery turned murder, but they soon discover that appearances can be deceiving. Mark Wahlberg leads the multi-ethnic group as they navigate the twists and turns of Detroit’s underworld and corruption in search of the responsible party. In the edited-for-television version, most of the foul language is cut (imdb says that the f-word was used 62 times), but there is still a lot of violence, mostly gunplay, that may not be suitable for younger audiences (and was too much for both Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, who, according to imdb, turned down the role that eventually went to Wahlberg). If one can accept the level of violence, viewers are rewarded with decent acting and an interesting plot with a satisfying ending.
