Only the Brave

Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Josh Brolin and Jeff Bridges star in this drama based on the true story of the 2013 Yarnell Fire in Arizona. From the director of Oblivion and TRON: Legacy, and bizarrely featuring a cast member named Forrest Fyre in a minor supporting role (no, we are not making this up).

In 2013, one of the most destructive wildfires in American history devastated Arizona. An elite crew of firefighters - the Granite Mountain Hotshots - heroically combatted the blaze, in what was the deadliest incident of any kind for U.S. firefighters since the terrorist attacks of September 11.

A gripping and powerfully emotional portrait of yee-haw heroism, pitting a squad of cocky, calendar-purty white dudes against an adversary with no creed or colour, just an unquenchable appetite for destruction.

While aspects of the routine become mundane, it's the developing brotherhood amongst the men, and the sense of community around them, that ultimately strengthens this story.

It takes a very respectful view of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, with just the right emotional kick to leave an impression.

While "Only the Brave" is consistently involving and entertaining, [its] desire to be accurate about a heroic reality proves to be an at times awkward fit with the conventions of this kind of earnest and old-fashioned Hollywood film.
