The Brave One

(USA, 2007, 118 minutes)

A New York radio host loses her boyfriend and her dog in a violent mugging in Central Park and unwittingly turns into a vigilante killer. Smart, provocative, self-relexive vigilante thriller that questions its own genre while going through its preposterous motions; surprisingly thoughtful and anchored by subdued handling and another stellar performance from its leading lady.
