The Brave One


Two and a half stars (R)

Jodie Foster, Terrence Howard

Why is Jodie Foster starring in Death Wish 2007? Why is Terrence Howard co-starring, along with a lot of good supporting actors? Why is The Crying Game’s Neil Jordan directing a B-movie with delusions of grandeur? Don’t ask. To enjoy the good parts (the acting, the texture) of this revenge thriller, you need to turn off your brain and let the film do the thinking for you. 122 minutes. DVD INFO: Includes additional footage and a featurette.
