    Brothers (2009)

    Siblings Sam and Tommy Cahill are as far apart as brothers can be; while Sam serves his country as a Marine, Tommy is a drifter who just got out of prison. But after Sam goes missing in Afghanistan, irresponsible Tommy gets his act together in order to be an anchor for Sam's wife and children.

    It takes two-thirds of the film for any scene of real emotional truth or power to emerge - and by then we're lost.

    A soap opera ensues with more clichés than one movie can survive.

    Brothers, the new home-from-the-war film, written by David Benioff and directed by Jim Sheridan, has been made with obvious devotion and sincerity, and I wish I could take it seriously.

    When Carey Mulligan (the breakout star of An Education) pops up in a cameo, you realize how rich the film would be with her in the lead.

    Sheridan seems as conflicted as the Cahills about their virtues and failings.

    After watching this movie, I had what you might call Portman Traumautic Stress Disorder, a condition that leaves you twitchy, irritable, and in need of a well-acted light comedy.

    Anyone fond of Danish director Susanne Bier's 2004 original should steer clear of this ill-advised though faithful remake by Jim Sheridan.

    A gritty sibling saga offers a strong reinforcement of the reality that, for many returned soldiers, some battle scars never heal.

    Well-acted war drama is too intense for kids.

    Brothers is that rare type of film; one that feels real and true, never forcing itself to conform to the expectations of what a movie should contain.

    Tobey Maguire's jaw seems squarer, his eyes electrified and - as Sam's features harden - like Robert De Niro circa "The Deer Hunter." When Sam snaps - all snarls, snot and spit - Maguire and Jim Sheridan place you in his percussive, throbbing psyche.

    Brothers has painful things on the brain, but it's the intimate moments that hit deepest in a story that shifts between the war in Afghanistan and pent-up family angst back in the good old U.S. of A.
