Storyline Heading
It's not what stands in front of you... it's who stands beside you. Only the Brave, based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, is the heroic story of one unit of local firefighters that through hope, determination, sacrifice, and the drive to protect families, communities, and our country become one of the most elite firefighting teams in the nation. As most of us run from danger, they run toward it - they watch over our lives, our homes, everything we hold dear, as they forge a unique brotherhood that comes into focus with one fateful fire.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Although probably a little too long, the film succeeds in being both emotionally forceful and dramatically satisfying. And, if the first hour drags at times as the filmmakers attempt to cram in too much backstory and setup, the final half-hour is riveting

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good ...made with a combination of sincerity and technical skill that is effective on a fundamental level, even if it never quite becomes the devastating emotional experience that it clearly wants to be. Despite its early unevenness, "Only the Brave” tells its story in a sincere and relatively non-exploitative manner...

NY Post Full Review
Above Average ...mostly makes up in heart what it lacks in character development. ...frequently assumes the average viewer is more conversant in firefighter lingo than I'd imagine most are, and its broad-strokes portrayal of Donut's being good-naturedly hazed by his peers is less than compelling.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Good Only the Brave is filled with numerous moments that brim with what you'd call, for lack of a better term, a grounding authenticity... There's something beautifully old-fashioned about Only the Brave's ode to these messy, moody, fearless men who continually ran headfirst into the fray and the bond they had.
