Out of the Furnace (2013)

Russell Baze has a rough life: he works a dead-end blue collar job at the local steel mill by day, and cares for his terminally ill father by night. When Russell’s brother Rodney returns home from serving time in Iraq, he gets lured into one of the most ruthless crime rings in the Northeast and mysteriously disappears. The police fail to crack the case, so - with nothing left to lose - Russell takes matters into his own hands, putting his life on the line to seek justice for his brother. More »

    @bawnian-dexeus@thedude-abides -- Seems like we're all in the same boat, here. I gave it a 3/5, as well.

    @thedude-abides 2013's Drive, in a way. Like that woman that wanted to sue because she was expecting a Fast and Furious type of movie and got art.

    @bawnian-dexeus I'd say that's a fair assessment. Your 3/5 is equal to my 2.5 outta 4, so it seems we're in agreement here. Not sure where all the hate for this one is coming from, but it reeks of personal disappointment rather than objective opinion. I guess some peoples' expectations were set too high going in.

    @thedude-abides I'm giving it a 3. Performances were brilliant in Bale, Harrelson and Affleck. The supporting cast could have been explored a bit more as could the story, which in my opinion felt traded for the characters. Review is almost done, but this is the general idea of my thoughts :)
