Academy Award winner Jodie Foster stars as Erica Bain, host of a New York radio show whose life is shattered by a brutal attack that leaves the love of her life dead, her own body shattered, and her sense of safety permanently destroyed. Now, when Erica's fear of her beloved city becomes too much to bear, she arms herself...The first time Erica shoots someone, it is kill or be killed. The second time it is also self-defense ... or did she make a choice not to take herself out of harms way? The fear that once gripped her has become something else. And as stories of an anonymous vigilante grip New York, NYPD detective Sean Mercer (Academy Award nominee Terence Howard) pieces together the clues. With both Mercer and her conscience closing in, Erica must confront the possibility that her quest for justice has changed her into the very thing she hunts.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Magnetic by between Jodie Foster and Terrence Howard can't quite compensate for The Brave One's problematic and unconvincing eye-for-an-eye moral.

Common Sense Says
Foster only good thing in violent revenge fantasy.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this dark, mature revenge drama uses brutal violence and subjective images to play up its dire emotions. Within the first few minutes, a young couple is horribly attacked by a gang in a scene featuring hard hits and kicks, blood, and screaming. Subsequent violence includes loud and ferocious shooting, stabbing, beating, cars crashing, and a body that's been thrown from a high parking garage floor (viewers don't see the throw, but they see the body). Hospital scenes feature close-ups of bloody bodies and faces. There's some kissing, plus a sex scene (intercut with the violent attack) that shows bare breasts/nipples. Language is fierce, including multiple uses of "f--k."
