There's no question that Jodie Foster is a fine actress. In fact, she is perhaps one of the very best actors working today. Very few performers can match her range, and even in supporting roles, she routinely commands attention away from her co-stars. There's a magnetism to her work - a deft mix of defiant strength, innate vulnerability and old-fashioned sex appeal that makes it impossible to take your eyes off her.

There's only one problem: Too often, the movies she makes are not worthy of her presence. Her last two films - "Flightplan" and "Inside Man" - were both mediocre, and if it weren't for her impressive performances, both would have qualified as bad movies. Her latest, "The Brave One," is no different.
