Bob Thomas Associated Press On the credit side are the fine Mexican settings, exciting bull fight scenes and a sensitive portrayal of the troubled matador by Mel Ferrer. But the theme gets off the track too many times and is never sure of where it's going. Aug 5, 2019 Full Review Manny Farber The Nation The Brave Bulls -- concerning a frightened torero who mysteriously loses his fear in the last five minutes -- is an exercise in powerful photography if not in lucid story-telling. Nov 24, 2020 Full Review Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine An earnest but only half-successful attempt to transfer to the screen Tom Lea's fine novel about a bullfighter and his problems. The product is mostly flashy and shallow and-to me sometimes distasteful, too. Oct 30, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
