If you've had a hard day and want to watch something to restore your sense of justice in this world, then Braven has all the boxes well and truly ticked.
Braven is a standard-order action/thriller with adequate performances, occasional bursts of tension, awful dialogue, and a minimal narrative.
An automatic type of action movie, often only challenging its predictability by getting goofier and goofier.
To put it simply and gratefully: "Braven" is the sort of unpretentious yet thoroughly professional popcorn entertainment that brings out the best in everybody involved.
For anyone looking for a shot of vengeance adrenaline while waiting for "John Wick 3" to come down the pike, "Braven" will probably fit the bill.
Director Lin Oeding's stunt background serves him well; the stripped-down action, fights and stunt work here feel like the real deal instead of effects-heavy marvels of editing.
Extremely violent action movie has language, drugs.
Momoa is quite comfortable and capable as an action star...his Braven is a hero worth rooting for.
The stylish action sequences are overwhelmed by a woefully contrived screenplay that turns more ridiculous by the minute.
[Stays] entirely within its genre parameters but does so wholeheartedly, delivering a lean, mean dose of tension, violence and sentimentality.
Braven is proof that Momoa can carry an action movie all his own, and deserves more vehicles were he can lay down the law in the name of saving his disarmingly average clan.
Braven is a visceral film that is heartening despite its chilling brutality, as it showcases the sacrifices one would make to protect the ones who truly matter - family.
Little bit Home Invasion, little bit Western, little bit Die Hard. Braven sees Momoa in the titular role (maybe prepping for his upcoming role as Draven?) of this throwback action thriller, which is always a good place to start any movie. While not exactly groundbreaking, Braven was more enjoyable than I had suspected it might be. The sort of thing that'd definitely be worthwhile on Netflix or matinée .
