Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Macario De Souza (co-director of Bra Boys) and his editing team manages to balance the film's disparate elements of Joel Edgerton's restrained narration, fresh interviews, archival footage and re-enactments in a satisfying and exciting mix
Fresh: With two compelling figures at its core, this engagingly honest and unapologetically positive doco makes for exciting and ultimately moving viewing.
Rotten: The film has no real intimacy -- which makes us all outsiders -- and no apparent goal beyond cheering these guys on.
Rotten: If you can wait until Fighting Fear hits DVD or TV -- it would have fared better as a one-hour TV special -- you won't be missing much.
I'd watch it over and over again
Great movie! A few parts might be of been a bit slow, but overall a very inspirational and well put together. Motivational. In the top 5 favorite action sports movies.
Pretty decent movie
When bra boys came out it seemed like you finally got to see what this group of guys was really about-they love to party,love to push each other into insane waves,and their loyalty to their friends and community is beyond admirable. Fighting fear has the same feel. It doesn't have as fast of pace as bra boys but definitely enjoyable. Would recommend to anyone-
The night surfing at "ours" is sick!
