Rating: A- -- One of only a few Kirk Douglas films where the hammy actor didn't want to make me gag. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Douglas oferece uma atuação curiosamente divertida, mas o roteiro de Dalton Trumbo (normalmente um mestre) fracassa ao se concentrar na longa perseguição em vez de fornecer elementos para que possamos comprender melhor as motivações do protagonista.

Rating: 8/10 -- Afterwards, [Kirk Douglas] made no mystery of his love of the film, later declaring it his all-time favorite of his work. And why not? Full Review

Rating: A- -- Kirk Douglas produced and starred in this elegiac Western, scripted by Dalton Trumbo, which laments the vanishing Old West, its heroes and their mores, replaced by a modern world dominated by progress and technology. Full Review
Jul 13, 2009
Lonely are the Brave, a film fairly stuffed with symbolism, shows how inevitably the heroic, human, in its real sense unsophisticated world of the West and its values are crushed by the synthetic, the mechanical, the wasteful and vicious in modern life. Full Review

4 stars out of 5 -- David Miller's direction foreshadows FIRST BLOOD by framing big themes as rugged action...

David Miller builds sturdily on Philip Lathrop's widescreen cinematography, but Douglas and Dalton Trumbo's screenplay are the auteurs here Full Review

Product Description:

Jack Burns tries to spring his friend from jail and ends up on the wrong side of the law and on the run alone. The sheriff must bring him to justice even though his sympathies lie with Jack.

Product Description:

Academy Award winner Kirk Douglas ignites the screen with one of his most personal roles as a cowboy on a collision course with the modern world in Lonely are the Brave. After landing himself in jail trying to break out his friend, Jack Burns (Douglas) finds himself alone and on the run from the law. Leading the manhunt is Sheriff Morey Johnson (Walter Matthau), who must bring Burns to justice despite his own sympathy for the fugitive. Co-starring Gena Rowlands, George Kennedy and Carroll O'Connor, Lonely are the Brave is an unforgettable portrait of a lawless man defying life in an orderly world.

Plot Synopsis:

Kirk Douglas, as cowboy Jack Burns, breaks jail to help
an old friend and heads for the state border with the sheriff,
played by Walter Matthau, in pursuit. Based on Edward Abbey's
elegiac novel "The Brave Cowboy" and written by Dalton Trumbo,
Burns's flight for freedom on his old horse, pursued by jeeps and helicopter, is an eloquent metaphor for the passing of the old West and its virtues.
