Only the Brave (12A)

Biography, Drama

Based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a group of elite firefighters risk everything to protect a town from a historic wildfire.

The critical consensus

Joseph Kosinski takes the helm of a gripping, albeit simplistic firefighting drama, based on real events.

***(*)(*)James Mottram, The List, 06/11/2017

Long, tedious and not much fun at all. The ending is good though.

**(*)(*)(*)Elena Lazic, Little White Lies, 08/11/2017

This is a more folksy and old fashioned affair. One of its most refreshing aspects is that it celebrates a group, not individuals. There is the usual banter, high jinks and male bonding.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 09/11/2017

A salt-of-the-earth tale that’ll play well in red states, but offers little spark.

**(*)(*)(*)John Nugent, Empire Online, 09/11/2017

The raging fires and rugged beauty of the scenery are the real stars of a well-acted but all-too-predictable tale.
