  • Putting to one side its rough edges, Fighting Fear is another compelling story of contemporary Sydney culture.

    Nov 10, 2011 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A documentary that reaffirms the hard-drinking, hard-partying, hard-fighting values of good old fashioned mateship, as Bra Boys director Macario De Souza follows the friendship of two friends - one a Big Wave Surfer and the other a cage-fighter.

    Nov 24, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • If you can wait until Fighting Fear hits DVD or TV -- it would have fared better as a one-hour TV special -- you won't be missing much.

    Nov 10, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • With two compelling figures at its core, this engagingly honest and unapologetically positive doco makes for exciting and ultimately moving viewing.

  • The film has no real intimacy -- which makes us all outsiders -- and no apparent goal beyond cheering these guys on.

    Nov 10, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Macario De Souza (co-director of Bra Boys) and his editing team manages to balance the film's disparate elements of Joel Edgerton's restrained narration, fresh interviews, archival footage and re-enactments in a satisfying and exciting mix
