insanely refreshing to see that peter berg and mark wahlberg had no involvement in this...
because it's 100% something they would make.
A lesser directorial effort would've gone all in on the macho cheerleading and humdrum patriotism that so often plagues these based-on-true-story films; but Joseph Kosinski impressively tells a story that is deeply emotional and genuinely effecting, as a story about these hero firefighters ought to be. Instead of musing endlessly about the heroic nature of the job, zeroing in on the local populace's adoration and the sacrifices these men proudly made (which aren't bad things, just often mishandled in movies); the movie really makes an effort to feature the technicalities of being a firefighter, particularly one who fights wildfires. The politics of rank and department, the strategies for containing and eliminating risk, the imposing conditioning required for the job; it's…
Who knew the guy who made TRON: LEGACY was a better Peter Berg than the real thing?
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
still unsure how much of this is genuinely good and how much is just heavy-lifting by an unbelievable story, carried over the finish line by a charismatic cast and some gorgeous photography but hey it's made me cry twice. recommended if you're looking for a movie starring josh brolin where most of the cast suddenly dies in the final minutes and it's actually moving.
The main reason I wanted to go see this film was because of the director, Joseph Kosinski. I had really enjoyed his past two directorial efforts (Tron Legacy and Oblivion) and was interested to see how he would work outside the sci-fi genre. Needless to say, my expectations were exceeded.
Only the Brave is an emotional yet uplifting film that will leave you with a heavy heart.
The film follows the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a firefighter group based in Arizona who tragically perished in the Yarnell Hill Fire in June of 2013. The film spends a lot of time building these characters, informing you about their job, and making you sympathize with what they're doing. The…
The last 20 minutes or so alone are swooning as hell.
They make this film what it is,.
Even if the core acts of it are a bit cliche, they still build characters that we care enough about to make the (real life) climax mean so much.
Kosinski really needs to make more movies.
This one really hit me. I wasn't expecting to enjoy "Only the Brave" nearly as much as I did. This is such a powerful, inspiring, and effective drama that really left an impact on me. I was blown away by pretty much all the performances here. Josh Brolin gives one of his very best as does Miles Teller who keeps climbing higher on my favourite working actors list. Not to be forgotten are Jeff Bridges, Jennifer Connelly, Taylor Kitch and especially the very underrated James Badge Dale who are all great as well. The fire sequences are done very well and they always feel real. All the characters here are very well developed and by the end I pretty much…
Another directorial home run from TRON: Legacy and Oblivion helmer Joseph Kosinski, Only the Brave recounts a powerful true story in a way that’s as incredibly thrilling as it is genuinely earnest and deeply personal, with great characters and fantastic performances throughout.
I got to shake Josh Brolin’s hand. Top 10 best moments of my life right there tbh.
But for real, this is a great comeback feature for Kosinski after Oblivion. It’s an emotional gut punch that really proves that Kosinski can do more than Sci-Fi. Surprisingly Miles Teller was amazing in this film, it was weird for me that his character’s name was Brendan though but his best performance since Whiplash. I’m very excited about Kosinski’s future because this was just outstanding.
Only the Brave ist wohl einer der besten Katastrophenfilme die ich je gesehen habe.
Da der Film auf einer wahren Geschichte basiert, fühlt er sich dementsprechend auch sehr realitätsnah an. Nicht wie andere aus diesem Genre, komplett überdreht oder einfach zu groß, nein, hier stimmt alles bis ins kleinste Detail. Die großen Schauspieler die im Film mitwirken, zeigen wieder allesamt, was sie drauf haben. Besonders beeindruckend war die Chemie zwischen Josh Brolin und Miles Teller. Die Gedanken dieser Charaktere, konnte man allein, nur mit austauschen der Blicke erkennen und man wusste, was der eine über den anderen dachte. Die Waldbrände sehen einfach nur spektakulär aus und ich hätte diese gerne auf einer großen Leinwand im Kino gesehen.
Wollte mir diesen Film erst auf iTunes leihen, habe dann aber doch festgestellt, das er auf Amazon Prime verfügbar ist. Jetzt weis ich aber, die Leihgebühr wäre es auch wert gewesen.
Only the Brave is an honest, incredible and respectful story of The Granite Mountain Hotshots, a group of elite firefighters who risk everything to protect a town from a historic wildfire. The movie opens with Eric Marsh, who is the superintendent of the crew trying to get the firefighter hotshot evaluation and certificate so he and his crew can handle wildfires on point.
Directed by Joseph Kosinski, Only the Brave is a true story of heroes told in a way that is genuine and emotionally effective. It juggles between the professional and personal lives perfectly. Showing Eric's struggles with his wife Amanda, Brendan's transformation from being a junkie to a responsible man. We also see how the exercises are conducted,…
Though it takes a while to get going, Only The Brave ultimately creates an emotionally earnest depiction of heroism, bravery and sacrifice, grounded by a top-notch ensemble cast.
"if you're looking for sympathy the only place you're gonna find it is in the dictionary, somewhere between 'shit' and 'syphilis'" is a line that could really only be delivered by Jeff Bridges.
Again proving how talented and underated Joseph Kosinski is.
Also this cast is top notch.
Prepare for a gut puncher.
Only the Brave is the most generic title for a movie that’s actually pretty unique by today’s standards. It’s based on the true story of a group of Hotshot firefighters. Apparently a Hotshot firefighter is kind of a green beret of wilderness firefighters – the guys who go out with little support and create fire breaks to prevent wildfires from consuming towns. The timing on this new release is either fortuitous or unfortunate given the fires out west… but since this is based on a true story and it’s emotionally honest and not hyperbolic as an action film, I say it’s well-timed.
I didn’t know the story of why these Granite Mountain hotshots got their own movie but I assumed…
A real life hero movie is always hard to make. This movie is no exception. The majority of the film feels disjointed from the ending.
Boys Support Boys: The Movie.
Even though this film features characters, plot conventions, narrative tropes and character arcs that have existed in countless other movies before it, Only The Brave succeeds in it's ability to do the aforementioned as effectively as possible.
اول مره اشوف فلم عن الحرائق
احس اني اخذت فكرة جميلة عن الحرائق
فيه كلام غريب أحس بدي أقوله بمناسبة هالفلم:
اللي يطالع في النقاشات الثقافية السائدة يلاقي إن فيه تيار بدأ ينتشر عندنا كانتشار النار بالهشيم، تيار يشوف إن الذكورة/الرجولة مسبة ويحاول جاهداً تقويضها، في عصر السيولة ماعاد فيه شيء ثابت اسمه رجولة وماعاد فيه صفات محددة نقدر نطلقها على الرجل، كل شي سايح وعادي تلاقي رجل شكله بنت وداخل في علاقة مع رجل آخر، وهالأمر راح يوضح لو اطلع المرء على مفهوم الجندر مثلاً
الخلاصة: شكرًا لكل الرجال الحقيقين -وفق معنى الرجولة التقليدي القديم- شكرًا لكل الآباء اللي بذلوا ولازالوا يبذلون من أجل أسرهم وآبنائهم، وشكرًا للرجال اللي اضلعوا بمهام شاقة وصعبة لحماية مجتمعهم
شكراً لمن لازالوا يملكون صفات: الشهامة، الشجاعة، الكرم، المروءة، قوة البأس والشكيمة، الجرأة، شكرًا للقوة العضلية والبنية الجسدية القوية، شكرًا لهرمون التستوستيرون
Criminally underrated. The last 20 minutes are incredibly powerful. What a great film.
it's a patriotic dad film for sure, but one that feels authentic
Joseph Kosinski delivers an emotional and engaging film these real life heroes deserve. The pressures of the job on family's, the brotherly bond between them and the sheer danger of the job itself, these are all perfectly captured throughout. With some brilliant acting, from a talented cast that build your relationship to the characters, this movie succeeds in making you feel sadness, laughter, fear, you name it, it's there. An excellent film that depicts this true life event, and to top it off an "edge of your seat" last half hour, this is a MUST watch.
9/13/2020 this film hits even harder when you’ve been through wildfire scares
Последние минут 30-20, конечно, просто блестящие. До слёз блестящие. Такое простое, добротное и по-настоящему живое кино о настоящих людях, которым приходится сражаться с природой, у которой нет ни сострадания, ни жалости. Жутко
