  • 5 stars Excellent - well done - been there and seen it, the real stuff.
  • 5 stars Probably one of the best well acted movies I have seen in a long time. The cast is impressive and you feel as though you are one of the crew and go through the triumphs and ultimately tragedy they experience A must see!
  • 5 stars It has been a while since a movie has really impressed me and this true story really did. With all the forest fires and wild fires effecting us these days, I think this story is being told on film at a great time. I need to say after watching this movie I feel compelled to thank and honour all the men and women who fight fires for a living or as volunteers. This story is about Hot Shotters in particular but anyone who has the courage and strength to battle the blaze ... any blaze has my respect ... they do it for the challenge, the thrill and to feed a self desire to help people and save lives and property and they all need to be recognized for the risks they take to keep us, our property and the beautiful places we live in and love to play in both alive and safe for us all ... these people are heroes ... what this movie made me realize is that it's not just them ... the only people more heroic than those who battle the blaze are their loved ones at home who live with the constant fear that on any alarm or forest fire their hero may not come home the same or at all .... we owe as much or more gratitude to them as we do those men and women they love and support .... so if you know any one who battles fire or their family members give them a hug and a thank you ... and go see this movie that tells the story of people like them who risk it all to walk the line that keeps us and our places and things from becoming fuel .... it's a risky and dangerous life that not just anyone can live .... ONLY THE BRAVE
  • 5 stars Never knew this true story existed before this week really understand the story now.The firefighters were heros and this is a story I will never forget. The move was excellent
  • 5 stars Great story well acted movie
  • 5 stars Highly recommend this movie, base on a real true story, Jennifer connelly is still lovely.
  • 5 stars Unlike the other movies, this is a true 5 stars best movie that everyone should watch it.
  • 5 stars I recommend go see this movie. Jennifer Connelly's performance is excellent. All the actors performed very well! I like the way the movie had multiple stories going as it developed several characters. Also the dialogues between all the characters is real life material, including the way the movie depicts the camaraderie among the Hot Shots. This movie does an excellent job portraying the burdens placed on family life as well as the family-life sacrifices these firefighter public servants made before the ultimate sacrifice. Seeing their photos at the end, very real. Not too long ago, I read an article talking about a push to bring back real life - real people oriented movies to Hollywood. Some of the ones I have seen lately, especially this one, appear to have been made with that thought in mind. This movie offers humor, drama, then it leaves you feeling sad yet hopeful.
  • 2 stars Slow paced movie and I expected more drama. I respect that it is a truly tragic story however it could have been portrayed better.
  • 4 stars The best thing is it is a true story that needed to be told. It dragged a bit in the middle especially when they tried to develop the characters and the bonds they felt. Even though I knew the ending the intensity was strong. This is a tear jerker ending in an immense way. Bring tissues. My prayers for the families.
