Not a bad offering but I got the sense I was watching "Death Wish" and instead of Charlie Bronson we had Jodie Foster in the lead role and she carries it off really well with strong support from Terrence Howard, well worth the effort.
Jodie carried the movie along, without her stardom the movie would have been very ordinary indeed. It had an nappropriate ending but so too is the Hollywood's approval of gun use for American culture or its protion of it.
Absolutely excellent, Jodie Foster is such a good actress.
Please - what was Jodie thinking to be involved with this film.
loved the movie. unfortunately sections 22 and 23 were corrupted but I got the story OK.
Yep Jodie Foster dishes it out. It has a coupla bad moments (her monologues seem without depth) but overall all Jodie Foster is really good. Surprised.
a bit thin for a jodie foster movie.....especially the ending, left me very dissapointed. Very graphic also.
Loved the movie -Jodie Foster does it again. She makes you think this could really happen.
As usual, Jodie Foster does not disappoint. The best movie I've seen in a while.
Terrific thriller. Jody Foster at her usual brilliant best. Great actress! Good storyline and almost plausible ending. Feel good finish.
One of Jodie Foster's best performances...really dark and emotional drama that pushes the boundaries of right and wrong when it comes to revenge. You definitely feel for her character especially after the park scene and her recovery in hospital. You can understand her position when she goes after the thugs that killed her boyfriend. Definitely a must see :)
great top pictue but u must not be interupted during th movie or you will mss the line of thought
Good acting - OK narrative. I've seen better Jodie Foster movies.
This was a great movie. She did a cool job. We need more people like her!!!
I have watched Jodie Foster grow and mature since her first movie called Taxi.
She has two Oscars. In this exciting screenplay she exhibits her emotions and feelings well ably demonstating her obvious talent, to play this role.
Her correctness about proper killings ---no sweaty palms is the claasic response. As I am a Forensic Osteopath and Humanistic Psychologist I believe this lady actor really researchs her work. 10 out 10.
Did this ever get to the big screen or just get buried? It deserved better. Based on a frequently used formula, but Jodie tends to give the character real depth and credence as opposed to many previous weak attemps. Script, acting and story all very tight and even if this type of genre doesn't appeal, it should keep you rivetted to the set till the end
Ok! I am a Jodie Foster fan, but have seen her in better roles.
Certainly worth a watch - enjoyed this movie - rateing is right
The Brave One questions your morality and adds a love theme to boot.
great movie, having seen it some time ago, throughly loved seeing it again, about a young women loosing her partner to street bandits, and not feeling that the police were on the case trying to solve the crime, she buys a gun, and through her grief shoots thug street people, eventually finding the killers, she befriends a detective who helps to protector her through her grief
Really good movie, excelent story, unpredicted ending Very good
Most enjoyable film. Fast action and good storyline.
Rated three stars
A dark and gripping tale - Jodie Foster is excellent. Worth watching for the great characterisation and build up - though I wasn't too keen on the ending.
Excellent movie - Jodie Foster is brilliant in this!
Good movie, but a bit slow. Not one of Jodie Fosters better movies
Just another movie about female retribution and one woman vigilantism. It was OK. Jodie was excellent.
very slow at the start takes, a while to get into it but still a good movie, worth watching, Jodie
Foster is brilliant in this.
This was a fantastic movie.Sad as its true to life these days so a bit violent.Jodie Foster is fantastic as usual.
Fantastic thriller with evocative themes, worth watching love Jodie Foster.
SPOILER WARNING: so revenge is ok now. a cop who is sposed to have seen it all sees video of one brutal crime and his convictions are washed away. crickey i hope real police are not as insipid
Very good movie worth the watch
Very worthwhile movie...I could see this happening in real life.
This was such a great script which was well acted and kept us totally mesmerised. Even though it is a classic "revenge" movie, its script had a mature dimension which left us feeling thoughtful about how we would behave if faced with a similar situation. Jodie Foster was absolutely believeable in this role. It's a movie I would recommend.
The Brave One - Jodie Foster at her brilliant best - haunted, sleep deprived, angry, persistent and determined. She is a "loner" - goes into places other people would never venture. Found the ending a bit unbelievable but still enjoyed the film. Because we had recently seen another movie with her in it where she lost her daughter in an aeroplane found her character a bit similar.
great movie of a lady taking back her power.
Best not to know anything about this film. Acting is brilliant and plot is unique. Deep inside all of us is someone who just does not want to take anymore sh*t. This appeals on many levels.
Not a bad movie. Jodie Foster gives a good performance even though the story is a little far-fetched.
If you see Jodie Foster's name on the cover you don't need to read the reviews ... she never fails.
Wasn't a fantastic film, but anything with Jodie Foster is going to have some good entertainment value.
Reasonable movie. Jodie Foster always good but the story was a bit thin in parts, a few holes in the storyline and quite a predictable plot. Wouldn't recommend if you want an edge of your seat movie.
Jodie Foster is brilliant in this role - however I thought the film dragged in parts and I got lost in the storyline. I felt the connection immediately with the two main characters ( Foster
Good movie, this lady does what I guess people in her situation would want to do.
The performances in this are good, but it is let down by some shoddy direction and writing. The ending was a bit 'meh'. Really expected more oomph to the storyline.
This is an amazing story of a victim of crime seeking revenge. A journey to track down the perpetrators makes a viewer as determined as the victim to achieve this goal. Great acting and what I believe - a perfect ending.
slow to get going, but stick with it. Very violent and quite graphic early in the piece. Didn't see the ending turning out like it did. Worth a look.
Excellent, Jodie Forster is great and so is this movie, really gts the emotions going.
A bit slow but worth the watch...
Worth watching for Jodie Foster's performance. OK storyline, support actors.
Awesome movie, really enjoyed it.
Strong performances from the leads and a good emotional core help elevate this above the usual revenge trip movie. The film does a good job of showing Jodie Foster's gradual disintegration into killing machine.
A great performance, really makes you think about things and how one would react in a similar situation.
It's films like this that make me amazed that Jodie Foster's sexual preference hadn't been noticed earlier. This film not only makes it evidently obvious, but also probably her other preferences as well. The film was crap by the way.
Great movie. Worth watching. Top performance again by Foster!
Irritated me. Did not enjoy at all. Could not recommend
Suspend your disbelief at Jodie Foster being a vigilante. This movie is believable. I found myself cheering for her as she gets revenge on the 'baddies' and the good cop is on her side. Very watchable.
Another great Jodie Foster movie. It's such a pleasure to listen to Jodie's voice. Really enjoyed this movie.
Good movie. A bit slow in places but well worth watching.
An incredible performance by Jodi Foster. She turns from a soft, loving sexy woman into the hard, calculating agent avenging her lovers death. Great movie.
This was a terrific movie, Jodie Foster played the role of victim/vigilante very well. One of the best performances I have seen from her in any movie.
Jodie you done it for me once more!! you bring tears to my eyes in "The Accused" but you bring joy to my heart in "The Brave One" excellent!
Jodie plays another amazing role.. this movie was slow in bits but towards the end got just better and better
Fantastic Jodie Foster movie. A good thriller.
This was great - Jodie Foster takes revenge on the men who killed her fiancee. Really enterntaining. What the character did was wrong, but she just couldn't help herself. Jodie Foster just gets better and better.
I thought the storyline was a bit of a stretch in places and the characters were a little thinly developed, but, if you're looking for a flick that's entertaining it doesn't disappoint.
Was a bit disappointed with this one. Expected better, and the ending - well, not very good.
Enjoyable, well paced, great performances and stylishly directed. Worth a look.
Really disappointing film.
Pretty standard fare. Quite a few forensic holes in the storyline but Foster does an okay job. She needs to find a few friends though.
The performance by Jodie Foster adds a nice hard edge to this movie. Definately worth a watch.
A well done movie. Great acting by Jodie Foster (as always) and a great story line. This film grabs you and drags you in. You want to keep watching. Well worth a look!
Worth watching if you don't mind violent movies.
i loved this movie - i could just imagine doing the same thing. hope you enjoy it too
A little bit over-the-top vigilante type justice. Too hard to believe.
Jodie Foster, what can you say. in a word FANTASTIC !! you can expect, as always, an amazing performance. proves how certain situations can change a person.
An amazing actress in an amazing movie. Jodie Foster gets better and better. I saw this film earlier this year on a flight from the UK and just had to see it again.
Very sad and at the same time very disturbing film about retribution for a life altered forever more by the thoughtless actions of thugs. Interesting ending, enjoyed it very much.
The thinking man's vigilante movie featuring the thinking man's pin-up girl Jodie Foster. This is quite good, slow paced but becomes more involving and keeps you in right 'til the end. Foster's character is severely bashed and her boyfriend murdered by some street thugs. The traumatised woman buys a gun for self protection and starts to find herself suddenly empowered in a believable, considered way (well, her reactions are believable if not her uncanny ability to be present at random crimes). A slightly different take, but still a vigilante movie.
Love Jodi Foster films.Really good ending.
Not your ordinary movie. It looks like a revenge movie, it sounds like a revenge movie, it walks like a revenge movie, so it aint!! Foster isn't wasting a few just to get back on the brutal death of her partner. Or even for the terrible assault on her. Because she has become another person, and she is horrified by what she witnesses herself doing.
Not ordinary. But thought provoking, a moral nightmare.
Watch it, and be soothed by the great soundtrack, and by Sarah Mclachlan's low tones particularly.
"Play Misty for Me" in reverse!!
Jodie Foster ! As always - the best performance ! Wife needed tissues !
Much better movie than I expected. Jodie plays out the revenge fantasy that most of us would want to do if faced with the same situation.
For some reason, the beginning irritated me, but once it got going I was into it. The ending caught me by surprise, but what happens when ballistics get hold of the bullets?
Perhaps 'The Lone Vigilante' might have been a better title - braveness didn't really come into it - but for all that another superb performance from Jodie Foster
who doesnt love Jodie Foster. good mainstream kinda movie. thought provoking.
Thoroughly enjoyed this movie! Jodie Foster is great, as usual, in her role and plays the part perfectly. The script heats up very nicely and ends how it should!
Loved the movie, the actress and actor - am in two minds re the image presented by the vigilante. I agree, let the baddies get what they deserve, but all the what ifs come up: what if it's the wrong person? what if the vigilante got it wrong? What if Australia was to become like Ameri-gun - everyone killing everyone else who dun 'em wrong?
However, as usual Jodie Foster is outstanding.
Great movie, a stirling performance from JF. I wouldn't mess with her.
Too slow and long but a good story line.
Fine performances & a credible plot make for an interesting experience, which allows space for questions to be asked, rather than just a mere action approach to vigilanteism.
Unlike any other Jodie Foster film. The premise is that she is a gun-toting vigilante and it didn't quite work for me. Definitely worth a look though.
Not a bad movie, if you are into the whole good Vs evil, vendetta thing. Jodie Foster is fantastic (isnt she always). Well worth a look.
Jodie Foster is excellent as always.
It was o'k,not a bad performance from Foster.
Excellent acting by Jodie Foster
Great movie. Kept me going for the whole duration of the film
This is one tough, uncompromising movie, a kind of female version of Death Wish (the first and best one) but a little more complex in the way it handles the vigilante issue. Personally, I say the bad guys deserve everything they get, especially in an era of slap-on-the-wrist 'justice'. Standout performances from Jodie Foster and Terrence Howard (as the detective). Gritty, angry, great.
very contrived unrealistic and while acting was ok the script was poor and the ending was unrealistic - though it may have appealed to the american vigilante type audience who have little respect for the law
Really good, best of this genre I've seen in a long time.
Jodie Foster always good - strong performances - some plot themes have to be accepted but overall an acceptable night in on the telly!
I am a big Jodie Foster fan and felt she gave an excellent performance as the grieving fiancee however, the underlying message of this film was alarming, and by the end I was left thinking she should be on the NRA payroll. Too American in its mentality for me.
Okay vigilante movie with Foster great as usual. Kept me entertained but didn't blow me away. Worth a watch once.
good movie.boys didnt love it but not a chick flic either
Fantastic thriller with evocative themes. Foster is brilliant, as always.
I enjoyed the thought I gave to the issue that this film provoked. Foster's dedication to her craft always makes my journey to follow the story a little easier and an excellent performance was given by Howard. Neil Jordan and Philippe Rousselot teamed up again to deliver a very polished product with some innovative photography.
Although the film impressed a nonchalance towards violence, this movie is for those with a strong stomach and tends towards the melodramatic.
If you love Jodie Foster then you'll love this film. She's just sensational. A truly gripping story but the end seems rushed and is a bit weak.
fantastic movie, Jodie Foster great performance as usual.
Jodie looks amazing in this movie shes been in a few flops I think and is now back with a backbone and this is a good story with plenty of guts however the ending is a little lame
Worth Watching - I would never be a victim anymore
Great movie... slightly depressing but keeps you interested the whole way through. One of my top 10 movies
I saw this film at the cinema and it was brilliant. Jodie Foster is as great as ever. A bit violent in places but nothing gratuitous.
Another incredible performance from Jodie Foster. Brilliant Movie.
