Intense Action Film Filled with Emotion
10 August 2019 | by ritaaugustineSee all my reviews

THE BRAVEST accomplishes the extremely difficult feat of delivering stunning, edge-of-your-seat action along with intimate emotional moments and very appealing characters you can feel for and root for. Even though it's set in China and subtitled it feels absolutely universal, so you can lose yourself entirely in the story no matter where you're from. And it's not afraid to make you cry. First rate, eye-popping summer entertainment about real heroes rather than superheroes. A great time at the movies!
