Only the Brave

Only the Brave ★★

An upgraded made-for-TV weepie aimed straight at the red states. It’s not all bad, but like a lot of Kosinski’s other movies, it’s too long by half, at least. I’m a fan of Josh Brolin but never have I found him as uninteresting as he is here playing a thanklessly gruff, tough-love leader type. Miles Teller, it should be noted, eats everyone else’s lunch with his performance.
