Director Robert Zemeckis pulls out all the stops in creating a film that has you yearning for the tormented main characters to reunite. When reality sets in it's more heart breaking and difficult to endure than anyting Hanks's character faced on the deserted island all those years.
Four Brothers is a 2005 American action film directed by John Singleton. The movie stars Mark Wahlberg, Tyrese Gibson, Andre Benjamin and Garrett Hedlund. The film was shot in Detroit, Michigan and Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
All the elements of a masterpiece film: engaging characters, graphic realism, a stirring theme that demonstrates the best aspects of human nature when confronted with the absolute worst of human circumstances, all wrapped up in a strong story. This film is definitely my favorite among many great war movies.
