  • 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.

    If you want to read the review I wrote for this, go to letterboxd.com/HankIsDead514. I can no longer post long reviews on here and I'm not writing two separate reviews for the same movie.

    Momoa is a promising action hero and thanks to Aquaman might finally push him into the public. This film required a bigger budget to fulfil the gritty promise of the storyline. The film is shot like an indie and the area looks amazing, not your typical action film style. Braven lacks the polish, but it is provided great strength thanks to Momoa and Lang in the lead roles. I was hoping this would be a better film, the trailer look incredible. The budget robs the flm in the end and that is a shame, it really isn't a bad film. One of the action scenes involving two men going off the cliff is quite badly shot. Momoa is the saving grace here and you'll only watch it for him. 02/01/2019.

    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 .
