Exceptional cast delivers exceptional performances

Christian Bale is easily one of the great actors of the modern generation. In "Out of the Furnace" he shows why with gripping command. Casey Affleck & Woody Harrelson come very close to matching Bale's outstanding performance with their own characters. This is a must see film with a riveting story that also features exceptional work in direction and cinematography and great performances by Willem Dafoe, Sam Shepard and Zoe Saldana and supporting characters that include Forest Whitaker. MUST GO.

some moments otherwise slow

Overall, this movie was so-so. It was sort of slow and the ending left us wondering what happened. It is a tragedy, I guess, the fall of a good character. It is a bit unclear what happens at the end. Also the scenes were slow so I found myself listening to the music in the background (score) and wondering about the person whose job it is to write/produce the score to add to the mood of the movie.

Awesome Awesome Movie - Must See!

All around great movie. Not a huge Christian Bale fan but he deserves an Academy Award for this role. Plays it perfectly. I'm not sure how long the movie is I heard some people say it was a little over 2 hours but it felt like it was an hour long movie because you didn't want it to end. It wasn't the over the top action like most movies today and had just the right ratio of drama and action to keep everyone entertained. Probably my favorite movie of 2013.

Out of The Furnace

It'd been too long since I'd seen an awesome movie. Parts of this movie I felt were just getting slow, then a great part of the plot happened. The story and movie were complete and full, the ties portrayed between family, brothers and communities are solid and you can feel the pride. By the end of the movie everything felt completely justified. It's a tough movie, the scenes are awesome and I'd recommend it to anyone.
