Jodie Foster and thoughtful Irish international director Neil Jordan take us to places we'd probably rather avoid.

The Brave One can at times be a brutal, violent and harrowing portrait of an over burdened system, where thugs rule the streets and the corrupt contaminate the upper echelon of society. It is also an un-original revenge/vigilante story.

The Brave One is worth seeing for the scenes between Terrence Howard and Jodie Foster.

The switch is flipped so quickly by Erica that I didn't root for her vengeance, I felt sorry for her.

The Brave One feels like a superhero movie, charting the familiar story of an unsuspecting everywoman who discovers one day that a gun gives her special powers to right wrongs and uphold justice.

Audience identification with the movie really rests on whether you're turned off by this freestyle, really pissed off judge and jury female assassin, or else in the mood to cut this loose cannon sexy sniper some slack.

If nothing else, enjoy Nicky Katt's hilariously smart-ass one-liners.

The movie never seems entirely plausible. Yet it makes no difference; we still get involved with it.
