"Out of the Furnace" takes audiences on a wild explosive ride from calm reasonable beginnings to wild turbulent ends.
The film starts of slow but quickly grabs the audience's attention to lead them through the troublesome storyline which is sure to entertain.
Russel Blaze, played by Christian Bale, lives a hardworking in hopes of making a better life for him and his younger brother.
Russel goes to prison for a drunk driving car accident and younger brother Rodney Blaze, Jr., played by Casey Affleck, gets mixed up with underground fighting set up by John Petty, played by William Dafoe.
Rodney becomes involved with one of the most violent and ruthless crime rings in the Northeast and a vicious Harlan DeGroat, played by Woody Harrelson .
Rodney and John disappear after a vilify and violent fight set up by Harlan.
Russell must choose between his own freedom, or risk it all to seek justice for his brother.
Dafoe plays an underhanded sneaky character that from the start seems like a person to beware of. The character feels realistic.
Affleck is whiny and fierce. He embodies many of his character's complexity well and manages to bring his character to life with relatable traits.
Bale is the actor to watch in this film. His portrayal of his character is emotional and inspired. He keeps the audience on the edge of their seats. The manner of switching moods and is perfect for the twists in the story.
The ending is fitting and surprising leaving the story a well fit finale.
I give this film a 4 out if 5 Popcorns. It's a well acted story that thrills audiences with it's complexity. Bale drives the film forward with a magnificent manner of playing the moods subtly. The story is a bit slow and fits the story but may bore or distract the audience a bit. The fights are vicious and bloody but they do seem simple. Although it's a thrilling action movie it leaves some more action to be desired.
"Out of the Furnace" in theaters now.
