“I remember first seeing the trailer for this movie about a year ago before a movie I watched last summer and thought it looked very promising. A year later I had almost forgot about it until I started seeing commercials on TV and I got my hopes high. To be honest, this is probably the first movie that met my expectations.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI didnu0026#39;t go in expecting the greatest movie ever, I mean it does have Marky Mark in it and Iu0026#39;d hate to think heu0026#39;s be the start of my favorite movie of all time. But I did expect it to be exciting, emotional, and engaging… And it was.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOne of the things this movie does best is show the love and commitment between the brothers. The chemistry between the actors was excellent and really added to the feel of the film. It takes a lot to get emotion out of me in a movie, Iu0026#39;m talking the beginning of Saving Private Ryan a lot, so I unfortunately didnu0026#39;t feel as much as some of the other people in the theater, but you know something is right when people cheer when the main characters kill bad guys and yell u0026quot;NO!u0026quot; when things donu0026#39;t go right. The emotions between the brothers also led to many very funny comic moments, which I did not expect to see as many as I did. I laughed many times.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSingleton is probably a better write than director, but he does a decent job through out. Most of the film is simple camera angles and what not, but there were a few moments, specifically a car chase, that was shot really well. It was all done in a manor that kept it realistic while keeping it interesting. It should also be noted that this movie had the SECOND most intense shoot out Iu0026#39;ve ever seen in a movie. Second only to, of course, the LA streets shoot out in Heat which, in my opinion, is the most intense 15 minutes ever filmed.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eActing was decent. Like mentioned before, the chemistry between the brothers was great, but there were many simple one-liners and Mark Wahlberg seems to play the same character way too often. Not really acting so much as reading lines in a tough way.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhile this isnu0026#39;t the #1 movie of the year it definitely met my expectations and is a very, very good summer action flick of not more.”
