Four Brothers

My plan was to go see Deuce Bigalow this weekend but I couldn’t convince anyone to come along, instead I ended up going to see Four Brothers.

I’ve driven through Detroit but I’ve never actually stopped. Man, do they love their gun there! I found it more disturbing that all the gun play that happened through out the movie seemed very matter of fact way, “well they killed my mother, now I’m going to have to go and kill them.” as if that was the only course of action that could happen. I don’t know if I had trouble connecting to the movie because I’m not from Detroit or anything that even remotely resembles it or it was just a crappy story that failed to draw me in.

People often cringe when they hear that a music artist is going to start branching out into acting. I like to give everyone the benefit of the doubt because they are not only musicians and/or singers, they’re entertainers. What do you think a music video is? It’s a short film and most of the time it involves them doing something other than standing there and singing. Andre 3000 (Andre Benjamin) from Outkast turned out a solid performance I can see him getting a lot more work.

Overall the movie had a couple moment but as a whole didn't really drag me into it. If you've enjoyed past John Singleton movies you should enjoy this one.

What do you mean you dont live in a place that resembles Detroit... Have you listened to the news in the last month.. 30 people shot.

If Detroit is Hockeytown USA, Toronto is Detroit Canada...

And dont give me that $hit that you dont live in T.O... they're all coming from the "bridge" to bust some caps...
