Critic Reviews of "The Brave One"The New RepublicSeptember 22, 2008
The Brave One is not merely the most morally repellent film of the year, but a contender for the stupidest.Time OutSeptember 28, 2007
Beautifully played, the tantalising accretion of mutual understanding between Foster and Howard is one of the film's strengths, yet the plot machinations required to lever it into position would overstretch credibility in the clunkiest action flick.Rolling StoneSeptember 20, 2007
The fire goes out long before the film ends.Ebert & RoeperSeptember 18, 2007
I think The Brave One could have been a better film with a different ending, but it's still a well-crafted, thought-provoking story with outstanding performances.USA TodaySeptember 14, 2007
Foster does her best with a flawed story whose ending rings even less true than the rest of it.Toronto StarSeptember 14, 2007
Uncertainty helps keep The Brave One on its toes.East Bay ExpressApril 28, 2011
Jodie Foster and thoughtful Irish international director Neil Jordan take us to places we'd probably rather avoid.Matt's Movie ReviewsJuly 06, 2010
The Brave One can at times be a brutal, violent and harrowing portrait of an over burdened system, where thugs rule the streets and the corrupt contaminate the upper echelon of society. It is also an un-original revenge/vigilante story.Times-PicayuneAugust 14, 2009
You know what would be brave? Making an unflinching film about a difficult-to-tackle topic and complex characters, and sticking to your message, damn the torpedoes.ReelzChannel.comSeptember 08, 2008
They're trotting it around at all the festivals trying to distract everyone from how bad it is.
