The Brave One

Headlined by Jodie Foster, The Brave One is an exciting story of a woman trying to piece her life back together after a traumatic event, but as hard as she tries she will never be the same person again. The movie is well written and the dialogue is strong and believable.

Unfortunately, Terrance Howard is not and he is actually what weakens this movie. His interactions are forced and unnatural, and it really takes you out of the movie. The editing worked in some scenes adding a lot to the composition and emotion of the movie, but it really took away from some other scenes and killed the pacing. (Trying to be different and inventive really ended up hurting the overall movie).

However, there is one scene that gave me chills because it was executed perfectly, the camera was in the right spot, and there was a definite attention to detail. (In an attempt to maintain a spoiler free review I will not mention any more detail)
