        All the Peter Berg jokes have been made. And while each and every one of them might be accurate Only the Brave is as earnest a movie there is. Camaraderie, bravery, and genuine willing sacrifice are captured in this harrowing tale with an ensemble charismatic enough to make the memories of this movie, and in turn the real-life heroes, stick with you for a long time to come.

        There hasn't been a really good fire film since Backdraft but this film attempts to bring something different. The film has that predictability with the setup and conclusion but that doesn't stop it from being a story worth telling. The key to the film is the characters and while it's the usual cliché riddled filmmaking, it is still a lot of fun and the acting is right on the money. The actors are strong and deliver performances that separate themselves from each other, no single character feels left out and it's this style of filmmaking that keeps this from being run of the mill. Brolin is the key ingredient here and is one of the best central actors working in Hollywood, just his presence elevates every scene he is in. Kosinski hasn't been in my high end of filmmakers with some of the choices he has made but this is an impressive step to proving the strength of actor storytelling that other filmmakers have exceeded in. 24/02/2018.

        This was very enjoyable. Well acted, with a true yet tragic story of men who became heroes in the line of their duty.

        I went into this movie expecting a sappy story with light fratboy humor, but came out absolutely blown away. The performances were great, particularly by Brolin, the characters who are spotlighted are interesting, the dialogue and action sequences are well written, and Kosinski's directing is superb. My only issue is that it runs a little longer than it should, but the film never lost my attention. Truly a suspenseful and emotionally gripping movie.
