Excerpt: Out of the Furnace features your basic revenge plot and other mellow dramatic situations as this film plays out. Christian Bale struggles to make ends meat and is often looking in on his brother played by Casey Affleck. Woody Harrelson plays the hillbilly villain and you can't wait to see his get his once you see how nasty he is. Outside of that the movie is good and worth a spin or two. Blu quality features a nicely done PQ presentation.
Excerpt: I love how Scott Cooper shows a different kind of America. The culture and nuance is great. Nice to see a "DEER HUNTER" type town in 2013. Yes, the reviewer has some valid points. The acting does overshadow the story. But it's still a great American film. So far from Hollywood. And btw, it's not SOUNDGARDEN, it's PEARL JAM Jeff.
Excerpt: Out of the Furnace is in my eyes the most perfect result of production. It is very difficult to get the right people to fill the right parts, but the producers of Out of the Furnace hit every mark right in the heart and made, in my opinion of course, a very engrossing picture, because there is not a single miscast or wrongly chosen person that worked on this film. The direction by Scott Cooper is sometimes chilling, sometimes enlightening.
Summary: great cast for this slow and dark burning movie. it was a ok movie but for the cast i expected so much more. ,it never really gets going and the ending is poor. its more like a tragic drama than a big movie which is fine, but it just lacks something.
