What Doesn't Kill You
22 June 2014
Excerpt: Tegenvallende film, het genre thriller kan ik er niet uithalen. Qua drama wel een redelijk verhaal, maar de spanning was ver te zoeken. Scènes waren bijzonder kort en gingen vlot van de ene naar de andere. Persoonlijk vind ik dat meer bij een passen.
Excerpt: Wij vonden dit een goede film. Er wordt mooi in beeld gebracht dat als je in bepaalde situatie zit het moeilijk is om uit te komen. Een vader die soms dingen moet doen die hij liever niet wil, maar hij moet voor zijn gezin zorgen.
Excerpt: I hadn't heard of this movie, but decided to pick it up as I enjoy a lot of the stuff that Mark Ruffalo has done. This film is very realistic for a gangster flick, obviously as it's based on a true story, but not as loosely as most such films are.
Summary: Well-made with engaging performances and a good script, 'What doesn't kill you' makes for an afternoons decent entertainment. Allegedly based on real-life events which is a scary thought that life can be so hard for some people.

Excerpt: Every now and then a movie gets released and bypasses theatres or it gets a very limited release and ends up on the rental shelf. No word on how good or horrible it can be.

Summary: This powerful true story is brought to life with great directing and the amazing acting of both Mark Ruffalo and Ethan Hawke. Everything in this film screams "real". Realism is the key as the film captures the story of two men trying to live their life with the 'cards they've been dealt'.
Summary: This is a very underrated film. I think its a shame it never has gotten publicity. I randomly picked it up on the fly for free a local library on DVD and was amazed that I never even have heard of it. There are no gimmicks or high wire stunts this was true to life.
Summary: The guys who made this movie sure have a lot of heart, the title says it all. A beautiful movie that holds at its centre a story of personal transformation. While Paulie (Hawke) tries to play the best hand with the cards he is given, Brian (Ruffalo) plays along, craps out and eventually learns a...
Excerpt: Movie - Ok so I never seen the Theater Preview for this film. I only seen this film being previewed on TV for it's Blu Ray launch. Let me tell this much. I had very high Hopes for this film. BUT! Oh Boy! this film was a disappointing failure. It failed all kinds of ways. The story was mediocre.
And yet another kids to criminals to wake up call movie
7 May 2009
Summary: This film is yet another rehash of that glut of films about kids who begin lives of crime early on, go to jail, and come out either enlightened or unchanged. Set in South Boston, WHAT DOESN'T KILL YOU happens to star some fine actors in Mark Ruffalo, Ethan Hawke, and Amanda Peet, and their presence...
