SYNOPSIS

Joe Braven (Jason Momoa) leidt een keihard, maar simpel en eerlijk bestaan als houthakker langs de grens tussen de V.S. en Canada. Dat verandert echter op slag wanneer hij ontdekt dat een goedgeoliede drugbende zijn afgelegen berghutje als opslagplaats gebruikt. Het genadeloze kopstuk van de bende (Garret Dillahunt) wil de brave huisvader op de knieën dwingen door zijn gezin te bedreigen, maar dat is buiten de verbetenheid van zijn tegenstander gerekend. Want Braven heeft, letterlijk en figuurlijk, wel meer pijlen op zijn boog...

De gereputeerde stuntman en -regisseur Lin Oeding levert met Braven een wurgend spannend regiedebuut af, met spetterend in beeld gebrachte actiescènes in indrukwekkende natuurlijke decors en een uitmuntende cast: Jason Momoa (Justice League, Aquaman, Game of Thrones), Stephen Lang (Avatar, Don't Breathe, In The Blood) en Garret Dillahunt (No Country for Old Men, Looper, 12 Years a Slave).


REVIEWS

  • Variety.com: Braven remains exciting and suspenseful even after Joe vrooms out of the claustrophobic cabin setting on an ATV, triggering a manhunt in the snow that further illustrates Oeding's ability to choreograph action in clear, clean fashion. And that action is all the more involving because the freshman filmmaker gives his actors sufficient time to flesh out their characters before the bullets (and arrows) start flying. To put it simply and gratefully: Braven is the sort of unpretentious yet thoroughly professional popcorn entertainment that brings out the best in everybody involved.
  • Villagevoice.com: Any cheapjack action movie can get a crowd to cheer at its shock kills. It's the best ones that persuade us that there's a clear chain-of-events physical logic at play — that find suspense in one action leading inevitably to another.
  • Latimes.com: Action-thriller 'Braven's' Jason Momoa proves as skilled on land as he is at sea. It's Momoa's show and he brings strength, warmth and gravitas to a part that, thanks to an emotionally-grounded script. A solid, fast-paced action-thriller.
  • Slantmagazine.com: Lin Oeding's Braven thrives on both the beauty of its natural, snowbound surroundings and the brutal instincts of man. Braven is the sort of scaled-down, sure-footed, and efficient action film that the hyper-saturated video-on-demand market needs more of.
  • NYPost.com: For anyone looking for a shot of vengeance adrenaline while waiting for "John Wick 3" to come down the pike, "Braven" will probably fit the bill.
  • Cinemarter.com: Braven will satisfy action movie fans who want to see a chapter that relies more on the physicality of its actors than technology. It has a simple premise, a slow-burn setup, and then lets it all play out logically.
  • Flyckeringmyth.com: Lin Oeding's Braven is the kind of 90s punch-in-the-mouth action flick us genre fans fight tooth-and-nail to find nowadays. A deliciously junkfood Jason Momoa centerpiece that could be wedged right between Commando and Cobra watches. Hell, Oeding's opening lumberjack sequence is a straight callback to 1985's Arnold Schwarzenegger classic (missed opportunity not having Momoa carry a log, if you ask me). Reluctant heroes, stone-cold criminals, packages of dope – it's everything we love about cheesy survival flicks with zero hassle. Simplicity be damned. If there's one thing Braven knows how to do, it's show you a bloody good time.
