Profile of The Brave One

The mood of The Brave One is gloomy, contemplative, and suspenseful. The plot centers around unlikely criminals, vigilantism, and vengeance. It is a thriller, drama, and crime movie. Stylistically, The Brave One stars a strong female character, involves twists and turns, and includes a voice over. In approach, it is serious and realistic. It takes place, at least partly, in an urban environment. The Brave One is set in New York. It happens in contemporary times. Note that it includes strong violent content, sexual content, and profanity.

Sometimes a movie hovers in one spot for so long that you are hoping, begging that it goes to the next level. In the last thirty minutes of The Brave One, it does just that. This movie is very similar to Death Sentence, but I liked this one better....
