Sign In. Braven Hide Spoilers. It wasn't bad at all. This is classified as a action film so I was expecting nothing but action. It was pretty entertaining, and surprisingly touching at times.
Good acting and performances, good action as well. Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote. Solid flick with some fast paced action. I know the narrative is a little straight forward but who cares.
It was a fun ride, and Mamoa's in it! While the movie lacks strong writing, the action is on point and there is a lot of suspense once the movie kicks into gear. The location this was shot in made the story more interesting. Overall, it was enjoyable in my opinion. Action packed!! This is one of those films you had to keep watching till the end. Loved the cinematic shots of the Canadian snow!
Nailed it with the casting. Good debut from the director too. I'm surprised that none of the actors Jason, etc. Seriously, how does this nonsense go unchecked? Me and my family loved this film. This is a good old action flick that had action, emotion, courage and pure entertainment.
It's a win in my books. Reminds me of some old classic films, seemed this was done intentionally, but with cool action scenes. This is my very first review on this site, as I rarely feel sufficiently invested in a movie to take the time to write a significant piece on a movie.
However, I had to speak out because I could not tolerate the fake reviews obviously meant to trick innocent spectators like myself. The movie started out as a decent, if by no means great or even good flick.F ilm budgeting is an essential part of the filmmaking process.
Anyone vaguely thinking of a career as a producer needs to know how to make a film budget. Our film budget spreadsheet follows the standard feature of film structure. Film budgeting usually occurs in two different phases. It often only provides the top sheet TS which totals the accounts and contains potential costs. The second film budget occurs once financing is secured. The costs are finalized and as a result is much more complex. The numbers are realistic because they can now be based on actual quotes and hires.
Like snowflakes, no two film budgets are alike. Film budget breakdown accounts and sub-accounts encompass these four categories:. This category includes development costs, talent, and crew generally involved in development phase. Writers, producers, the director and talent are included in this category. All pre-production and travel for these positions are also accounted for in this part of the film production budget. Production Budget contains the majority of the overall accounts.
All pre-production and production costs, equipment and BTL below-the-line labor are accounted for in this category. Almost everything is managed in this category: locations, permits, trucks, camera, grip and electric, etc. The post production category includes everything related to the post production process. All costs for the facilities, equipment, services and labor, should be accounted for in this category.
This category is a catch-all, and includes costs related to the advertising and distribution of the project.
Fun things like publicity costs, festivals, and attorneys. Be sure to include production insurance and any other generation costs for the production office. The project type and genre play a big role in the structure of your accounts and sub-accounts on your film budget breakdown.
Making a documentary, short film or feature film budget? Beyond the project type, the genre or specifics of the project also affect the accounts especially in the production and post categories. Our flexible, free production budget template eliminates the migraines of trying to create a one-size-fits-all budget.Principal photography began early-December in NewfoundlandCanada.
Braven's father Linden Stephen Langwho suffers from brain trauma due to a head injury, gets into a bar room brawl after mistaking a woman for his wife, requiring Joe to come to his aid and resulting in hospitalization for Linden. On Stephanie's suggestion, Joe and Linden decide to spend some time together at the family's secluded mountain cabin unaware that Charlotte was hiding in the back of the vehicle so she could tag along.
While transporting logs by truck, Joe's co-worker, a driver named Weston Brendan Fletcher is asked by Hallett Zahn McClarnona drug trafficker, to recruit other drivers into Hallett's criminal activities, but Weston refuses. During the exchange, Weston loses control of his truck, causing a crash that displaces all the logs and cocaine from the vehicle.
After they resolve to go to Joe's mountain cabin to store the cocaine there, Weston and Hallett are picked up by a police patrol car. Hallett relays the news of the crash to his employer, drug lord Kassen Garret Dillahunt. After Joe, Linden and Charlotte arrive at the cabin, Joe discovers the cocaine hidden in the shed so he hides Charlotte in a storage closet before being surrounded by Kassen's mercenaries and when Weston tries to act as a go-between, Kassen kills him.
Unable to call for help because of lack of cellular signals at the cabin, Joe, armed with a bow and arrow, and Linden with a gun, kill some of the mercenaries during the ensuing standoff.
Needing higher ground in order to access a cellular networkJoe drives out of the house on a quad bike with the original cocaine bag and Charlotte, hidden under a blanket. Joe drops off Charlotte and instructs her climb to the mountain, where she calls her mother, who calls the sheriff. Circling back, Joe dispatches more of Kassen's men. Kassen finds the bag, but it is empty. Discovering where Joe sent Charlotte, Kassen sends one of the mercenaries, Ridley, to find her, though when Hallett enters the cabin, he is stabbed twice by Linden, who then retreats, and is later wounded by another mercenary, Essington.

Meanwhile, Joe returns to the cabin, where he dispatches Clay and kills Essington. Charlotte is picked up by the sheriff as Ridley continues to pursue Stephanie. Kassen takes Linden hostage and after Joe pleads for his life, Kassen fatally stabs him. Kassen shoots the sheriff and escapes the cabin, later retrieving the lost cocaine.8 подруг Оушена

After facing off against the dangers of Westeros on Game of Thronesan apocalyptic landscape in The Bad Batchand flying villains in Justice LeagueBraven gives Momoa the chance to show off his brute strength as he takes on a group of ruthless drug dealers in one of the most physically demanding roles of his career.
Why was this role such a physical challenge, even for a guy as formidable as Momoa? Chalk it up to shooting in sub-zero temperatures in the Canadian wilderness, working on the edge of snow-covered cliffs, and having to fight in close quarters using a range of different weapons and martial arts disciplines. He trains as hard as anyone—you can see it.
The drills we did were used to heighten the reactive skills of the actors, so Jason could react much later, which helped minimize any anticipatory movement.
It helped make the fights feel physically real. Momoa used his fists quite a bit in Bravenbut what makes his performance such a badass display is the Rambo -style arsenal he got to put together. Braven uses knives, axes, bows, and other weapons fashioned from items in the cabin—like a carved wooden stake—to fight back against the drug runners.
Momoa already knew a thing or two about throwing axes just take a look at this video of him throwing one while drinking a beer but he became an expert for Braven. Jason picked up the axe and bow work easily, and it came across on-screen. Then, Alonzo asked the actors to do the same drills, but change up their timing.
That way, Alonzo says, they would be more reactive, making them more present in the moment, rather than focusing on the choreography, which could make the scenes feel staged.
It helped add even more realism to the brutal fights. This onscreen battle was challenging for Alonzo, because until Bravenno film had previously shot at the location. I devised a safety plan for Jason and the crew, and everyone who was close to the edge—or off the edge—were harnessed and spotted as needed.
That approach allowed the actors to work more comfortably at those heights, because the drop off the edge was a long, long way down.
Having previously worked on big-budget action films like Avengers: Age of Ultron and Mission: Impossible — Ghost ProtocolAlonzo enjoyed the experience of working on a smaller-scale movie. Momoa had a lot of responsibility on his shoulders being the star, but he only made things easier for Alonzo.
I felt we all worked extremely well on Bravenknowing we had certain limitations of time and money for the budget. I look at the projects I do the same regardless of budgets, and on this one we had a fantastic group of people who were ready to work no matter how cold it was. Alonzo also had high-praise for Momoa, Dillahunt, Lang, and the rest of the cast for their work on the film. Everyone was game, and I was impressed with how it came out.

A really sub-par action movie that takes place in an unbelievably beautiful setting. Take out the action, and it could be a National Geographic special.
The plot is beyond basic, bordering on simplistic. The set-up is formulaic and irrelevant to the rest of the movie, and the characters are empty caricatures from every other B action movie. This movie was awful. Terrible acting and god awful writing. It got 1 star cause parts of it were so bad, it was comical. We enjoyed it. Every movie does not need to be Gone with the Wind. Good escape and better than average writing and character development.
Directed by Lin Oeding and starring Jason Momoa, Braven begins with predictable and overt set-ups quickly placing the few plot pieces into play before rolling into an agglomeration of fun, cheap, action scenes all shot in the gorgeous forests of Newfoundland, Canada. Possibly, the largest missed opportunity was to display and establish "Braven" as a character who is capable of dishing-out the action, before the third act.
While you could spend hours nitpicking every scene in this movie for its plot conveniences, sub-par directing, and obvious pay-offs, Braven isn't boring, and it doesn't over-stay its welcome. It delivers to its target audience and has fun doing it. Much better than expected! Loved it I think Memoa has prove3 him self.
