The review of this Movie prepared by Daniel Staebler

There was a robbery at the grocery store and the robbers were shooting all over the store because the wanted the money. A woman (Fionnula Flanagan) gets killed who happens to be the mother of the four adopted brothers ( Mark Wahlberg, Tyrese Gibson, Andre Benjamin, Jack Mercer).

At the funeral, the brothers find out that their mother might be murdered. Then the four brothers quickly decide to take the matter of her death into their own hands. Now they have to track down the killer and as they go along they find out that there is something new in the way they do business again.

The two cops that are trying to solve the case seem to be very weird.
