In a month that’s been filled to the brim with fantastic new additions, it’s always icing on the cake when Netflix drops even more solid films into the service’s expansive library. So, in the event that you’ve already watched through recent arrivals like sci-fi classic E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and the star-studded thriller Triple 9, you’re definitely going to want to go check out today’s only new release.
Jason Momoa‘s underrated and often forgotten 2018 thriller Braven is now available to stream on Netflix and sees the actor play Joe Braven, a logging company owner who takes a trip with his father (Stephen Lang) to their hunting cabin for a bit of bonding. When they run into a gang of drug traffickers, however, they soon find themselves in an unexpected fight for their lives. Garret Dillahunt and Zahn McClarnon also feature as the film’s antagonists.
Braven did fairly well with most critics and earned itself a 77% on Rotten Tomatoes, receiving praise for its tense action sequences and solid acting, though it was criticized for its occasionally poor dialogue and relatively barebones overall narrative. All that being said, it’d make for a good movie night if you’re just looking to see some asses get kicked by one of Hollywood’s most beloved stars.
If you’re not in the mood to watch Jason Momoa beat down goons, though, there’s still plenty to come throughout the remainder of December, so be sure to head through here and take a look at what you can expect. Most notably, keep your eyes peeled for Chadwick Boseman’s final film Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom arriving tomorrow, the adorable and funny animated flick Rango on the 28th, and the fourth season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on the 31st.
