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.
in my top 3 of "movies that make me weep like a little bitch" list
when miles teller walks into that gymnasium...holy fucking shit i lost it
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…
It has a decent execution but it’s all too basic to really intrigue. The script focuses on group dynamics and the drama that comes with it, which mainly doesn’t work well since all characters are stereotype, the bromance and typical relationship struggles feel forced and uninspired. Some characters barely have any screentime which make feel the whole tribute to them a bit odd. The last 30 minutes have some intense moments and it’s an entertaining watch for sure but it all could’ve been easily shorter.
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.
I know I’m only giving this four, but objectively... greatest movie of all time.
All the fire stuff is great. Plenty of eye-rolling dramatic moments. But the ending is pretty fucking ballsy and will stick with you.
Le genre de film qui te noue la gorge alors que tu voulais passer la soirée à chiller tranquille. Les pompiers ces super-héros.
Gran tributo a los bomberos que murieron cumpliendo con su deber. Me hizo llorar
I was surprised how much I liked this one. Josh Brolin and Miles Teller are good. Teller really shines in this movie, especially near the end when the tragic moment happens. My only issue with the film was that it felt about 20 minutes too long. Overall good film.
Impressive and respectful dramatisation of what these firefighters went through and their story.
one of the saddest films i’ve ever watched
"Congratulations. You're hotshots!"
I went into this film blind. I fully expected "based on a true story" to be meant in the loosest way possible. I was just gonna make a "Thanos fights the fires" joke and leave it at that, but man this film hit me hard. If you don't know the true story, whatever you do don't make the mistake I did by googling it.
Telling the inspiring yet harrowing tale of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, this movie was unflinchingly real. It captured everything in such detail, whether it was the rigorous work of the fire fighters or the heavy emotional strain on their familes.
Josh Brolin and Miles Teller were excellent, with their characters being flawed underdogs…
This is usually the kind of film I would avoid. I don’t like Hollywood treatments of real stories, no matter how tragic or accurate the portrayal. The title of this film didn’t help— it lets you know right away how you are supposed to feel about these people and their story.
My wife loves this film and the books she has read about the Granite Mountain Hotshots. I am constantly twisting her arm to watch movies with me, so when she asked me to watch this one, I could not demure.
Thankfully, it is well scripted, and beautifully acted by a fine cast. I knew ahead of time about the tragic ending, but that didn’t pull the punch for me.…
DE: Ganz gut, aber für mich persönlich etwas zu viel Familiendrama und vergleichweise wenige oder zu knapp geschnittene Einsätze/Action.
EN: Quite good, but for me personally a bit too much family drama and comparatively little action.
nunca mais serei feliz.
só de saber o que aconteceu e lembrar que é baseado em fatos reais... é.
miles teller entrando no ginásio... é.
sabe aquelas coisas que você se recusa a acreditar que aconteceu mesmo? como um sonho ruim que você acorda e sente alívio?... pois é.
This is a beautiful movie but don’t watch it , just don’t watch it , believe me you will regret it 🙃💖
