Four Brothers (Blu-ray)

 

Picture: B     Sound: B     Extras: C     Film: C-

 

 

I was no fan of John Singleton’s Four Brothers and have said more than enough about why in two reviews, whose links follow:

 

HD-DVD version

Widescreen DVD version

This Blu-ray edition did not change my mind, though Wahlberg’s work in Martin Scorsese’s The Departed and André Benjamin’s work in Idlewild (both fine films superior to this mess) might drive the impressed to see this if they have not already.  I would tell them to still skip it.  However, this should be the last time the film is issued in any format for a long time, so that should be enough.

 

As was the case with the HD-DVD and Blu-ray of Lara Croft – Tomb Raider, the picture is as good in this edition as its counterpart, including the good (if not great) sound mixes as included in the HD-DVD version.  The DTS remains the best audio playback option.  The idea once again is to have mirror versions in both formats.

 

Extras are also the same, so no matter which version you purchase, you’ll get pretty much the same playback in content and performance.
