Well-acted war drama is too intense for kids.

Great Movie

Bought it at a yard sale for $2, and did not think i would like it. I watched it and relized how great it was. The acting is amazing, etc. The movie easily could have been PG-13 without the swearing towards the end. There is talk of sex. And some implied war violence

brothers is a mature drama movie that's best for older teens the movie does have a lot of violence plus they show very disturbing scenes of war, torture, and even domestic disputes on top of that there's a few kisses and embraces but no sex there's a lot of strong language throughout the movie especially when they use the f-word as a sexual reference way also there's a lot of drinking and smoking such as liquor, cigarettes, and a joint.

A great war drama that shows what really happens in thw war of afganistan!!!! if you have family in the military watch this movie!!!!!

Brothers is is a well acted war acted drama about Sam Cahill (Tobey Maguire)gets deployed in the war in Afganistan. Upon deployment his black hawk helicopter crashes and he is presumed dead. You will have to watch this movie to learn more. But overall this is a well a well acted war drama

Not recommended for anyone who supports the military. This movie goes to great lengths to paint military members with a broad brush. After seeing this film one gets the impression that all members of the armed forces are crazy. I gave it a chance and was very disappointed.
