The Brave One

The Brave One: *** (Good)

TheBraveOne I wouldn't necessarily call this a good movie.  I felt a little slimy after seeing it, because this is a movie that is pro-vigilantism. 

Jodi Foster and her fiance, Naveen Andrews from "Lost", are victimized by a gang.  The gang beats the fiance to death and leaves her for dead as well.  And... they steal her dog, a beautiful German Shepherd who did nothing to protect them during the assault.  I knew this was going to happen, so it was hard to watch them walk into Central Park the night of the assault.  They were so happy....

Terrence Howard plays the detective who is trying to solve some vigilante killings.  Since she is the vigilante, their paths cross and the interaction between them is the majority of the movie.

Foster and Howard are good, good actors.

This is violent movie (R for violence) that is also good, but you have to be in the mood (once again) to see people blown away.

This has been a violent fall movie season so far!
