Only The Brave • 2017 • Director: JosephKosinski • Writer: SeanFlynn, KenNolan, EricWarrenSinger • Casts: JoshBrolin, MilesTeller, JeffBridges
I never heard of this title before so I watched the trailer. It isn’t an extraordinary one but when I read the comment section, I immediately shivered. This movie is dedicated to the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a group of elite firefighters in Arizona who risk everything to protect a town from a historic wildfire. Then I decided to watch it the next day. And I got my face covered up with tears.
I don’t even live there when Yarnell Hill Fire happened four years ago but the sadness and the heartache hit me really hard. Speaking of the movie, the characters delivery from every cast is very complementary in making an emotion turbulence. The stage development of the story is so great, they build our knowledge gradually, how they work to eliminate the wildfire dilation, and how the community is having such a very strong bonding with each other. For the later, I really have to mention Joseph Kosinski and the ensemble cast (esp. Josh, Miles, Jeff, and Jennifer who play main roles) for their magic performance in this biopic.
The film's ending probably doesn't require a spoiler alert. Yarnell Hill Fire overran and killed 19 members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, left one alive. But this movie is not mainly to turn on your tears tap, this is about a powerful remembrance of their sacrifice.
Let’s take deeper how the Kosinski brought the storyline to that ending. He doesn’t hurry to arrive in Yarnell scene. He takes his time to compile the sufficient background story of them. And I personally loves the portrayals of the community love, the brotherhood, and the presence of father figure of some characters.
Like any other biopic, you may wonder how accurate this is. Since I’m not the expert, you can search it online, some articles have discussed it. But to sum it up, I truly didn’t expect this film would be this good (apart being no Mark Whalberg in it) and you really have to watch this before the screens down.
