Critic Reviews

  1. The end result, at best, is high-toned pulp.
  2. The drama is repetitive rather than resonant, an over-calculated, under-ventilated studio production -- even paranoid thrillers need to breathe -- whose plot machinery grinds grim and coarse.
  3. The film moves from cliché to cliché and hemorrhages blood and logic at an alarming rate.

Though "The Brave One's" opening minutes make way for a potentially provocative statement on gender expectations, feminism, and the role of a female in a heterosexual relationship, what unfolds is a mostly by-the-numbers vengeance flick that could have just as easily been spearheaded by a man without much of the narrative changing in the process. Missed thematic opportunities aside, it's still pretty cool seeing Jodie kicking some ass and taking names. Some major props also go to Neil Jordan and Terrence Howard for using their respective talents to elevate this piece up to watchable levels. Full Review »

    This wasn't the best box office film, but it gets impressive performances out of stars "Jodie Foster" and "Terrence Howard".
