Unbeknownst to its owner, a cabin belonging to hard-working family man – played by Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones, Aquaman) – gets used as a halfway house for a heroin stash. When he realises this, and how much danger his people are in, he does everything in his power to defend the ones he loves from the ruthless drug runners.
A while ago, a short hipster-friendly film about Jason Momoa being the greatest dad ever, made the rounds on social media. In the quick bio, he describes what it means to be a father and then does a bunch of cool stuff, like rock-climbing and skating with his kids. It’s wild and beautiful.
Braven starts out a bit like that, but then the action kicks in and so does Khal Drogo. Shot in snowy Newfoundland, the scenery is epic but don’t let that fool you – it’s not long before axes are wielded, bows and arrows are shot, and for the traditionalists, there’s plenty of gunfire too.
Time Out says, “If you’ve had a hard day and want to watch something to restore your sense of justice in this world, then Braven has all the boxes well and truly ticked.”
And Variety agrees: “To put it simply and gratefully: ‘Braven’ is the sort of unpretentious yet thoroughly professional popcorn entertainment that brings out the best in everybody involved.”
