Russell and his younger brother Rodney live in the economically-depressed Rust Belt, and have always dreamed of escaping and finding better lives. But when a cruel twist of fate lands Russell in prison, his brother becomes involved with one of the most violent and ruthless crime rings in the Northeast - a mistake that will cost him everything. Once released, Russell must choose between his own freedom, or risk it all to seek justice for his brother. Written by Production

An authentic and good-looking film that rings completely untrue in its characterizations and script
14 December 2013 | by (Panama City, Florida, United States) – See all my reviews

It's unfair to label "Out of the Furnace" a bad film. It's well shot. The setting is effectively imposing and formidable. The performances are nuanced and engaging. The sense of time is easily understood. Unfortunately, the positives end there. While it's an authentic and good-looking film, the lazy, heavy-handed script offers very little originality and rings mostly untrue. "Furnace" could be accurately described as "gritty", a genuine look at blue-collar, lower-middle class people. It's a fairly simple "good guys vs. bad guys" revenge film that avoids melodrama by instead opting to be boring. As it slowly plods along, it becomes increasingly clear that it has no interest in allowing us to infer anything about the subtler points of the story. The emotions it forces on us are manipulative and unnatural, and the dialogue is so heavy-handed and full of clichés I felt I was watching a student film. And the score….ugh. Is there a more uninspired way of saying, "THIS MOVIE IS ABOUT NORMAL FOLK" than to have Pearl Jam playing throughout? The high-points are the performances, making this film more than a waste. Bale continues to prove he is our generation's Deniro, deftly bringing subtlety and gravitas to every role. Affleck is proceeding to best his more famous brother, Ben, in every role. Saldana is great, and hopefully will be given better material someday. Unfortunately, there is very little for any of these guys to work with here. So no matter how powerful the movie seems to think it is, the mediocre writing and poor direction prove otherwise.
