"It is the final measure of bravery is to stand up to death."

The Brave is a remarkable and affecting film with a touching story that should keep any viewer compelled. With Johnny Depp giving an incredible and arousing performance as well as directing with gripping style, this is a film that I am happy to have seen despite the emotion that I felt while watching it.

"The final measure of bravery is to stand up to death."

The Cannes Film Festival of 1997 was a devastating period for Johnny Depp. The actor had directed, co-written and starred in The Brave, but his efforts were hardly rewarded when he presented the film to audiences at Cannes. Depp's film was subsequently panned severely by critics. This criticism profoundly disheartened Depp, who... read more

Being a huge Johnny Depp fan (even way before his antics with Captain Jake Sparrow), my expectations were huge with this movie. I have even seen it the theaters when it was released. Eventually, it was a big disappointment... It was so bad, it is even the worst movie starring Johnny Depp. I mean, the guy is a great actor, no doubt, but he has no talent for directing, I'm sorry. Indeed, the whole t... read more

A bad movie

“Being a huge Johnny Depp fan (even way before his antics with Captain Jake Sparrow), my expectations were huge with this movie. I have even seen it the theaters when it was released. Eventually, it was a big disappointment... It was so bad, it is even the worst movie starring Johnny Depp. I mean, the guy is a great actor, no doubt, but he has no talent for directing, I'm sorry. Indeed, the whole thing was just really condenscending and completely boring to watch, I couldn't believe I was witnessing such a train wreck. Depp gave himself the lead part and it is supposed to be some kind of righteous martyr but I thought it was pretty arrogant and egocentric. The great Marlon Brando shows up in a small part but didn't impress me either. In short, the story was average and the directing was jus” read more

A Brave career move by Johnny Depp

“"The final measure of bravery is to stand up to death."

The Cannes Film Festival of 1997 was a devastating period for Johnny Depp. The actor had directed, co-written and starred in The Brave, but his efforts were hardly rewarded when he presented the film to audiences at Cannes. Depp's film was subsequently panned severely by critics. This criticism profoundly disheartened Depp, who was so upset he refused to have The Brave released in the US. To this day the film has been buried and forgotten. Some people even exclude the film from the résumés of Depp and Marlon Brando. Not many people are even aware of the film's existence, except for die-hard film buffs and epicentres of Depp devotion. One will unquestionably find it taxing to unearth a copy of this film.

“"It is the final measure of bravery is to stand up to death."

With Johnny Depp giving an incredible and arousing performance as well as directing with gripping style, this is a film that I am happy to have seen despite the emotion that I felt while watching it.

The Brave tells a unique story focusing on courage, bravery, audacity and death. It would be impossible for anyone to finish this movie without being affected by it's deep meaning and passion, which comes across as a beautiful and expressive film. I know that I certainly haven't seen a movie with a story anything like this one before, it is unique in a way that is astonishing as well as strange. Johnny Depp i” read more

"So emotional and compelling to watch. One of Johnny's best performances ever. This one is really hard to find, but if you can, you must see this. Unforgettable."
