  • Conclusion: Home of the Brave is an interesting exercise in what passed for progressive thought in the late forties, and if that seems quaint (and maybe a bit horrifying at times) to cynical modern day eyes and ears, that's okay.

  • Conclusion: Olive Films once again stiffs a release with no bonus features.  Home Of The Brave is a solid wartime psychological drama that may be a bit on the nose with its racial dealings, but likely worked like gangbusters during its own modern times.

High-Def Digest
12 November 2007
  • Conclusion: 'Home of the Brave' didn't do much for me in its high-def debut. While it features a nice DTS-HD MA audio mix, the film itself is disappointing, the video transfer is soft, and the supplements are thin and missing chunks of features that appear on some European versions of the DVD.
