highly intense and thrilling movie. Great performances!
I really enjoyed this movie, if gave a real life aspect to our heros of war.
Intense! Very serious.... my heart was pounding from beginning to end. Amazing performance by Tobey Maguire... after seeing it, I was surprised there was not more "buzz" about his role. I can think of very few movies that I could rate as highly as this one. See it.
I was hoping for a drama that really explored relationships on a much deeper level, specifically when a soldier comes back from war. Great cast, but there was just not enough depth to this film. It had lots of potential but the director didn't go where he need to go. Another 20 minutes would have done it. It started to get there at the very end when the Toby Maguire character sits with his wife (Portman) to discuss what he had to do to survive in Afghanistan. Then the movie ended...very disappointing.
Never have I been more moved and affected by a movie. This movie is so intense and powerful and incredible. I don't understand why Jake, Tobey, and Natalie weren't nominated for Oscars for these roles. They were unbelievable!! Had to close my eyes during all the war scenes though
Very, very good movie. Enjoyed the performances. Very emotional.
Very serious, intense movie. A real enjoyment to watch telanted actors do great work, with great material. McGuire's character scared me big time!!
a very intense movie!!!
wasn't as good as i expected
Painful at times because it is just so slow. I love the storyline and when it moves, it REALLY moves quickly and it totally sucks you in. When it's slow though...paaaaaainful! Tobey Maguire, much as I don't tend to care for his movies, plays a very convincing soldier on edge. Natalie Portman is beautiful. May not be worth the full $13 but try it for dollar theatre prices.
good movie, i don't see how people could hate this movie. 4/5
Excellent movie. Exciting, emotional and believable. Great acting by entire cast. Highly recommend this one. I loved it.

The movie is Boring...If you want to see the real highlights of the movie and save your money than just watch the trailor...Slow Pace,slow story, slow everything...
amazing,must see film!!!
unbelievable,incredible movie...5 stars...must see...Toby is amazing in this film....very true to life,and well-done!!!
If this movie wins an oscar award, that would be very sad.
What a powerful, emotional movie. The acting was awesome...Oscar deserving!! Definitely a must see!!!
Very emotional and touching.
Sad story, excellent cast...can foresee oscar nominations for best actors and best supporting roles.
it was total let down. i expected it to be much better. the ending was absolutely terrible. a waste of money.
Very powerful Drama. Almost borderline depressing. But still an incredible and well told story. A must see.
Usually, I am very critical about American movies, but this one was one of the best movies I have seen. Definitely in my top 5. It is an original story, not to cliché, that reflect the sad really of soldiers coming back home from wars… Awesome movie !
This movie was very powerful and had a very interesting story line. I would definitely recommend it. The acting was phenomenal! Toby should get an Oscar for his performance because he really did transform himself.
WOW !! What a great movie. A emotional rollercoaster that both sexes will love.The whole cast deserves an oscar for this. Don't listen to any of the negative comments on here, its an incredible movie.
I loved it, totally realistic and full of great dialogue and chemistry between the actors. I just saw E! Channel said “It’s really strong. The casting was brilliant – especially Tobey and Jake as brothers. At first I thought I knew where it was going, and then it took some unexpected turns. I was really impressed.”
The acting was good, but it is definitely not a love story. I went into the theatre expecting a Pearl Harbour story line. It deals more with PTSD than the relationship.
Worst acting? u sure u know how acting should be like? I heard Tobey is gonna get an Oscar nominee for this film!
Brothers was fantastic! I don't know how this movie relates to TV shoes on "mtv or much music and shows like oc or the hills" as someone commented earlier. This movie is about the trial and tribulations a soldier faces in life who has been negatively effected by the war in Afghanistan, as well as focusing on how this has played a role in the lives of his family. No relation to shows on MTV! Brothers was an entertaining movie that got your heart pumping at times while also making you cry at others. I truly enjoyed this movie and I would definitely watch it again!
this is a REALLY BAD movie. Probably the worst i've seen in a long time. It is fine if your favorite tv shows are on mtv or much music and you enjoy shows like oc or the hills and you are a highschool teen with an incomplete view of life. I would not recomomend this movie, it has the worst storyline and acting.
i really liked this movie!!!!!
I thought this was a really good movie. This movie is actually about everyday people living everyday life and how events in life can change people surprisingly for the better or for the worse. And it heart-breakingly shows how humanity can be pushed to the ultimate limit and come so close to breaking down on itself. But this movie ultimately offers some hope at the end. It is such a wonderful and emotional story that I would recommend as a MUST SEE.
what a freakin AWESOME movie, definite o=Oscar nods coming its way
Brothers was a very good movie. acting was phenomenal. the little girl in it was amazing for her age. was not quite what the previews made it out as. but it was a very good story, giving the viewer a glimpse into the life of the soldiers in the war, and the things they must deal with upon returning home.
