'Brothers' has to be one of the most emotionally powerful movies I have ever had the pleasure of watching. It really brings home the horror of war, and the emotional turmoil that it brings upon the families of those involved. I have always liked Jake Gyllenhaal as an actor, but I have never really thought of Toby Maguire as anything more than competent. But his performance in 'Brothers' is nothing short of breathtaking, especially the last 30 minutes of the movie. I defy anyone with a brain and a heart, not to be totally enthralled in this movie.

This movie for me was really emotional , its goes to show how war can affect ones mind , for me the story of the movie its strong point , the acting is very top notch , tobey finally shows he can act but still shows his down side in a few scenes but that aside very well acted , Jake was the one that stood out the most and the little girl was fantastic and acting For it lost the star as the brothers relationship was not build up enough but a very powerful movie and a must watch.

Films of this quality don't come along that often. It's an awesome, powerful and moving film from start to finish. Easily one of the best films I've ever seen. The cast are fantastic and it's a credit to all involved. Recommended.

I watched this film by chance after seeing it advertised before another film. The film was brilliant, both male lead actors were fantastic and the story line was gripping. Truly enjoyed the film and would recommend.

In alot of ways the story is similar to Pearl Harbour, but much more engaging. Tobey Maguire (spiderman) who I didnt really rate as an actor was exellent in this but Jake Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko & Brokeback Mountain) Stole the show. A great, moving story that is well worth the money and more

  'a really engaging watch'

'sam' ( toby maguire ) is a happily married man living with his wife and two girls, he is also a soldier.
'tommy' ( jake gyllenhaal ) is 'sam's' brother who has in truth lived in the shadow of his more successful brother , he's just been released from jail.
'sam' is about to do a tour of duty in 'afghanistan' he promises his eldest daughter that he will be home for her birthday.
in 'afghanistan' the chopper he's in is shot down....his wife is told that he's dead.
over a period of time his brother seems to be taking over his family duties, could it be that 'tommy' see's himself as a replacement ?
meanwhile 'sam' 'alive' has been taken captive, when eventually rescued will what he's been through change him forever.
when he returns home he finds it difficult to adjust and forget the trauma he's suffered.
is there light at the end of the tunnel, or is there substance in his worst fears ?
a credible performance from the lead actors present a filn worth at least a watch.
