Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A documentary that reaffirms the hard-drinking, hard-partying, hard-fighting values of good old fashioned mateship, as Bra Boys director Macario De Souza follows the friendship of two friends - one a Big Wave Surfer and the other a cage-fighter."
‑ Simon Weaving, Screenwize
"With two compelling figures at its core, this engagingly honest and unapologetically positive doco makes for exciting and ultimately moving viewing."
‑ Erin Free, FILMINK (Australia)
"If you can wait until Fighting Fear hits DVD or TV -- it would have fared better as a one-hour TV special -- you won't be missing much."
‑ Leigh Paatsch, Herald Sun (Australia)
"The film has no real intimacy -- which makes us all outsiders -- and no apparent goal beyond cheering these guys on."
‑ Peter Galvin, sbs.com.au
"Putting to one side its rough edges, Fighting Fear is another compelling story of contemporary Sydney culture."
‑ George Palathingal, Sydney Morning Herald
"Macario De Souza (co-director of Bra Boys) and his editing team manages to balance the film's disparate elements of Joel Edgerton's restrained narration, fresh interviews, archival footage and re-enactments in a satisfying and exciting mix"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
