Critic Reviews for Home of the Brave
Though the drama has its moments of power, the treatment of its subject now seems cautious and dated.
For all its predictability .. an honourable and well intentioned effort to explore the trauma of war vets coming home from the hell of Iraq to the different kind of hell of suburban Spokane
Edwards gives a sensitive performance, and Mark Robson's direction never condescends or makes him an object of bleeding-heart pity.
Audience Reviews for Home of the Brave
I admire the fact this film tackles racial issues long before it became trendy. It subtly deals with race issues, basically not the blunt over the top way Oprah Winfrey does. Nice performances. The writing is a bit obvious, but it is well meaning and sincere. Skillfully directed by Stanley Kramer.
