Set on the dirty streets of Detroit, Michigan, and directed by John Singleton ("Boyz N the Hood"), this film plays out like an urban version of an old-fashioned Western.rnrnFour adopted brothers -- two white and two black -- are reunited when their mother, Evelyn Mercer (Fionnula Flanagan), is murdered during an apparent holdup at a small grocery store.rnrnLeading the pack in an effort to bring down the killers is the oldest brother Bobby Mercer (Mark Wahlberg), a man who acts first and thinks later. rnrnAngel Mercer (Tyrese Gibson) is Mister Cool, mainly concerned with his libido and trying to control his hot-headed girlfriend, Sofi, (Sofia Vergara). rnrnJeremiah Mercer (Andre Benjamin) has become a family man with a business in trouble. The youngest brother, Jack, (Garrett Hedlund) is a wannabe rock star who is both ridiculed and protected by his older brothers.rnrnAll four are tough, street-smart guys who would probably be dead or in prison if it hadn\'t been for their mother. rnrnIt soon becomes apparent that Evelyn\'s death was not just a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. She was a target; the robbery was just window dressing.rnrnAs the brothers start looking for revenge, the Detroit police step in, led by Lt. Green (played by Terrence Howard who is long overdue for stardom). Green grew up with the brothers and had a deep respect for their mother. His partner, however, Det. Fowler (Josh Charles), views them with disdain.rnrnVarious clues come to light and all roads lead to a sinister gangster named Victor Sweet (British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, best known for the movie "Love Actually") who rules Detroit\'s underworld. rnrnBodies start dropping and, of course, the brothers and the police clash as both groups try to solve the murder.rnrnOverall, this gritty melodrama delivers the goods.
