One of few survivors of a fatal plane crash, Klein remains calm and assists other survivors out of the burning debris, earning praise as a hero by the media. After stoically departing the tragedy without a word to emergency officials, Max returns home with detached feelings towards his wife (Isabella

In Fearless, fear-not just overcoming it, but experiencing it-connects us to our deepest selves, and to each other.

...it's the sense of sadness that gives the movie its backbone.

Especially as acted by Jeff Bridges, in one of the best performances of a career laden with outstanding work, Fearless is a bottomless character study.

Not only is it a gripping, beautifully acted drama, but the action scenes are jaw-dropping.

Weir and Yglesias, who adapted his novel, don't shy away from dealing with the kinds of issues seldom portrayed in mainstream movies: Fear of death and fear of life after a traumatic airplane crash.

One of Bridges' greatest performances. WHEN will this man win an Oscar?

A puzzling, overrated plunge into Inner Mysteries that are never truly compelling.

A great and shattering film.

Formidable and unforgettable film about mystery, near-death experiences and redemptive love.

Jeff Bridges. Wow. The man's a genius! (Movie's pretty darn good, too.)

A sublime meditation on physicality following a traumatic plane crash.

The film offers enough poignant moments, and a couple of very powerful ones, to successfully demonstrate the many faces of grief, and how important it is to get past the tragedies and get on with life.

Great central performance by Bridges. It's a shame this hasn't gotten a proper DVD release. It's a TRAVESTY that's it's only available in pan & scan.

Really this movie is at 86%?

I had to watch it in psych class the other day, and I thought it was prettyyy boring. I also wasn't really paying attention either. Movies like this don't interest me.

"Some people are afraid of nothing."

A man's personality is dramatically changed after surviving a major airline crash.

REVIEW
Powerful and inspirational depiction of the human spirit's quest for closure. After surviving a terrible airplane crash, Max Klein (Bridges in arguably the performance of his career) finds himself in a state of near nirvana as he assumes he's untouchable in the realm of death, until he learns of another survivor (Rosie Perez in her Oscar-nominated poignant role), nearly catatonic due to the death of her infant in the aftermath. Ethereal and genuinely moving with some unexpecting moments of humor and unabashed honesty. Features one of the more realistic airplane crashes in film history and a hypnotic score. Excellent direction by Peter Weir and screenplay adaptation by Rafael Yglesias based on his novel. Memorable scene: Car test with U2 on the soundtrack. Hypnotic.
