Only The Brave

Derived from the GQ article No Exit by Sean Flynn, Only The Brave tells the true story of a crew of elite firefighters who fought the Yarnell Hill Fire in 2013. Directed by Joseph Kosinski and featuring an exciting cast, consisting of Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jeff Bridges, James Badge Dale and Taylor Kitsch.

The film is a heroic story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots as they fight to protect their families and community. Heavily invested in lead characters Donut (Teller) and Soup (Brolin), the film follows them whilst they struggle to deal with their demanding career and keep their loved ones.

The film was able to capture the fire scenes perfectly and overall was shot beautifully. Teller’s performance was the stand out, with the rest of the cast playing their parts well. A bit of a slow burner with a touching story and an action-packed end. If you plan on seeing this film, bring tissues and prepare to be heartbroken. An awesome drama worth the time.

★★★1/2
