Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: While "Only the Brave" is consistently involving and entertaining, [its] desire to be accurate about a heroic reality proves to be an at times awkward fit with the conventions of this kind of earnest and old-fashioned Hollywood film. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Oct 19, 2017

Fresh: Though the movie, based on an article in GQ, by Sean Flynn, offers fascinating insights into the practical exertions and bureaucratic complications of firefighting, it places much greater emphasis on the protagonists' personal lives. – Richard Brody, New Yorker, Oct 23, 2017

Fresh: The movie overall can feel more than a little formulaic, but as a tribute to real-life heroes, Only the Brave serves its purpose. – Rafer Guzman, Newsday, Oct 19, 2017

Fresh: What goes down in Yarnell, and Kosinski's respectful portrayal of it, is undeniably devastating - and a well-deserved salute to a group of low-key heroes. – Sara Stewart, New York Post, Oct 19, 2017

Only the Brave

I love miles teller(Fantastic Four) and he does a lot of “based on a true story” movies this has action suspense drama!

Wonderful Tribute

I went to watch Only the Brave four times in theater. The movie doesn't put its main focus on the tragic day of the Yarnell Fire, but of the botherhood and bond of the Granite Mountain Hotshots and their journey to becoming certified– which is brilliant, because then we can get to know a little bit about the men on the crew and grow to love them. Absolutely heart wrenching but also has its comedic moments. I definitely recommend and think the movie portrays the Granite Mountain Hotshots as what they were and are: as heroes.

Only the brave

I went to see this last month it is by far one the saddest movies I ever seen in my life.
