Only The Brave
All men are created equal... then, a few become firefighters. Only the Brave, based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, is the heroic story of one unit of local firefighters that through hope, determination, sacrifice, and the drive to protect families, communities, and our country become one of the most elite firefighting teams in the country. As most of us run from danger, they run toward it--they watch over our lives, our homes, everything we hold dear, as they forge a unique brotherhood that comes into focus with one fateful fire.

October 24, 2017 Only the Brave feels like a film that would have made sense coming from Peter Berg or Michael Bay, but Kosinski mostly pulls back on the macho cheerleading to find something more objective, and ultimately, deeply emotional.Read in Source
October 20, 2017 Kosinski lets the story unfold at a measured pace - so much so that by the time we reach the climactic scene, we're unprepared for what unfolds. As a result, it's even more devastating and effective.Read in Source
December 17, 2017 Based on a genuinely moving true story, this film undercuts the realism by pushing its heroic machismo at every turn.Read in Source
January 19, 2018 Only The Brave squanders any potential to say something profound by getting caught up in regurgitating a flaccid story about heroism that we've been spoonfed since Sept. 11, 2001.Read in Source
