Neil Jordan's The Brave One stars Jodie Foster as a happy woman whose life changes irrevocably after a brutal assault leaves her partner (Naveen Andrews) dead. The woman, feeling that the police investigation will be unable to catch the perpetrators, begins to live in constant fear. This outlook results in the woman eventually dispatching vigilante justice. Terrence Howard co-stars as the officer in charge of the investigation. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

I rarely see a movie twice. This was a lot like the sixth sense. You see this movie not expecting anything. You have to wonder what you would do in that situation. I felt her pain and uncomfortable for her while she shook uncontrolably. It was a good movie and Jodie Foster really was great in it.
I enjoyed this movie, it definitely held my attention. The story line was good, the characters were real. It was good to see Nikki Katt in something again, I haven't seen anything with him in it since Boston Public was cancelled. The only thing that I didn't like is the ended was a little cheated. There were too many things that should have been done in order for the Detective to get away with his plan.
I didn't have high hopes for yet "another" vigilante film I thought -- but this one was different than I expected & I was not disappointed. I love Terence Howard in most of his roles, as I do Jodie Foster -- and this was no exception. Erica Bain (Foster) is a NYC radio personality whose fiancee is beaten to death sending her into some never before known areas of her own psyche. She begins to walk the streets of NYC at not, and understandably gets herself into situations that "force" her to take lethal action. Detective Mercer (Terence Howard) becomes suspicious of her involvement in the slayings & seeks to rescue her from her new "self" she's acquired. Also look for a brief appearance of Naveen Andrews (from Lost) as her fiancee.
