This is definitely a Jodi Foster 'WOW' movie. An incredible performance in a story full of heartache; fear; and terror. Culminating with a woman out to remove those who tore her life apart. This is one movie I won't soon forget.

This is probably one of the best movies Jodie Foster has ever made. You'll be channeling her feelings; The movie illustrates how some victims cope with senseless violence and tragic loss and the compromises they make. If you've bristled at how bullies and criminals escape punishment this movie will make you stand up and sheer.

"The Brave One starring Jodie Foster is a powerful and revenge-seeking drama about a woman who's forever changed by a harrowing trauma. Foster is a superb actress in every sense of the word, her eyes are magical - you feel her pain and anguish. Some of the subplots are a bit outrageous and can be too violent at times but overall, The Brave One is worth watching. Enjoy!"

"This movie for me is so real. I don't know how the writer and Jodie Foster did it, but somehow they wrote and acted out so realistically the very real feeling, fears, and thoughts so many of us have who have been violently attacked. I am amazed that they got so much of what really happens in the heart and mind of someone who doesn't physically die from an attack like this. I would have thought it impossible to write or act something like this so realistically without personally going through it in real life. So I wonder if maybe they did at some point in their lives because the writers and Jodie Foster did an AMAZING job. I wish I could personally thank the writer and Jodie Foster for doing this "movie" which is actually more of a DOCUMENTARY from my view. Thank you for helping others who see the movie, understand us better and for us(the ones who have been attacked like this and..."survived??"..) thank you for helping us understand ourselves more... or I guess for helping us feel that someone really does understand and really does "get it". I hope it helps the people who knew us before, understand why we can't just put something like this behind us and leave it in the past and understand how it kills the person we were and are now a completely different person and that we will never be the person we once were. I hope it helps the people who knew us before to understand that a person can be killed even if they are still physically alive, dead but still breathing. The person I used to be is dead. It's unrealistic and unfair for people that knew us before to expect us to "put it behind us and leave it in the past" and to expect us to come around and get back to being the person we used to be. That person is as dead and gone as I would be if I had been physically killed.
Thank you writers and thank you Jodie for understanding, or at least making some of us, finally at least FEEL understood. This movie was and still is so very therapeutic to me somehow. Somehow I don't feel so alone and cold or dead inside."
