Out of the Furnace

By mamhowitz
Written December 07, 2013
Hey, I read the reviews, I saw the trailer, I loved the actors, I couldn't wait to see this movie. For a movie about revenge with a lot of guns and free-floating anger, there was little energy. Lots of smoldering from Christian Bale, lots of frenzied malevolence from Woody Harrelson but little actual movement. Worse, the movie was slow and boring. To even mention The Deer Hunter in the same paragraph along with this ultimately tame movie is a sacrilege. The only resemblance is that there was a scene about deer hunting. A disappointment.

A Great Film

Out Of The Furnace is and amazing film to see in a theatre. I loved this film, it was very well made. The story is original and entertaining. The directing, production design, cinematography and screenplay were very good. Christian Bale and all the other actors did an spectacular job. I also think this film has the best ensemble of the year. The ending part of the this film was intense, I recommend it.

Enjoyable drama that delivers the finish

Excellent cast, loved Willem Dafoe in his supporting role as the local numbers guy. Christian Bale was excellent, and the finish was gratifying no matter how much you don't like Woody Harrelson (also an excellent depiction of a psychopath.

Not what I expected.

It was a good movie nonetheless, but not what I expected. This is certainly no action movie. It's a drama. It's a little bit everywhere. There's alot going on and some of it seems irrelevant. Don't expect to be moved.
