The Brave One





Director
- Neil Jordan

Genre - Crime/Drama/Thriller


An overhyped revenge flick that offers nothing new. Jodie Foster dons a leather jacket and goes all 'Punisher'. Predictable storyline and lack of believability that small-bodied Jodie Foster could actually take on these bad guys fail the movie. Even Terrence Howard who was great in Hustle & Flow couldn't save this as he's given a disappointing, wallpaper role here.

1 STAR!

Foster did a pretty good job in Brave One... a good demonstration of the power of fear; it felt like the cop compromised his convictions at the end, tho, kind of a let down

i actually watched this film in the cinema. well, for some reason i liked it. maybe because i'm a big jodie foster fan and i think she does good in every film she plays in.. no matter how bad the film is
