Victor Sweet

Victor Sweet is the main antagonist of the 2005 film Four Brothers. Along with Detective Fowler, he is a sadistic gang leader.

He was portrayed by Chiwetel Ejiofor who also played Baron Mordo in the 2016 Marvel Cinematic Universe film Doctor Strange, and will voice Scar in the 2019 film The Lion King.


Victor Sweet is a sadistic gang leader who is a gangster. He sent gangsters to kill Evelyn Mercer. He rules his gang with fear and intimidation. He humiliates Evan by forcing him to eat his dinner off of the floor, and later forces his wife to join him. Later, while playing cards with his crew, he shamelessly tells Charlie, one of his followers, that he is going to send him out of town so that he have "a little one-on-one time alone" with his fiancee.


Jeremiah meets Victor and gives him $400,00. Sweet thinks the money is his, but Jeremiah actually states it's for Victor's often-mistreated crew. He asks one of his co-workers Evan for a pistol but Evan tells him, "Uh.. No.. bitch. The one thing you forgot about me is this: I was in the union. I ain't never missed no meetings." Victor Sweet then starts some trash talking about people being scared to fight him and that Victor Sweet is the "champ".

Final Fight and Death

One of Evelyn's sons Bobby Mercer shows up and gives his gun to Jeremiah. He engages Victor Sweet in a hand to hand fight in which Sweet cheats by kicking Bobby in the groin. Bobby is able to recover and gives Sweet the beating of his life and knocks him out.

Sweet is then thrown into the freezing ice hole where he dies by freezing to death after being knocked out.
