Storyline

Tired of the daily grind, construction worker Charlie "Red" Redkin (Gabe Fazio, The Place Beyond the Pines) and his lifelong friends are fed up with the fight for money. When ruthless developer Gene (Ed Setrakian, The Sopranos) and his greedy son Ira (Lev Gorn, The Americans) force the construction business run by Red's father Senior (Bruce Kirkpatrick, The Wire) into debt, desperation and rage twist into a relentless need for revenge. As the pressure of a foreclosure threatens his family's home, Red and his friends are propelled into a life of crime to get cash fast. But when the deceit and corruption become too heavy a burden, "the boys" are pushed to the edge. Together, they are faced with a dilemma that will test their morals, faith, and ultimately, their loyalties to each other. In a world that refuses to let the workingman thrive, they want a better way. Their American dream was stolen, but they will steal it back. Written by Anonymous

Great DVD with Interesting Special features
14 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie grabs you from the first frame and grips you until the very end. There are no stereotypical characters in "Blue Collar Boys" that you're supposed to root for or are supposed to hate. You feel for everyone and are introduced to all of their internal struggles and you get to decide who the hero is and watch the characters progress, or regress, as the story unfolds. These characters are all at their breaking points and the audience gets to experience and feel their pure and raw emotion - something that is rare in films nowadays. The movie also deals with blue collar problems in an extremely authentic way and without an agenda. "Blue Collar Boys" is not just a one-dimensional genre picture, it's a real life film about real life people dealing with real life problems, which is very refreshing. Nothing in this film is idealized; everything from the construction sites, characters, situations, conflicts, and relationships is shown in a genuine manner. This is an uncompromising glance into the lives of everyday Americans dealing with the stress and struggle for money and how it can change your viewpoints on the world. "Blue Collar Boys" was such an innovative and frank film that I'm glad I got a chance to see it. I definitely recommend it! The DVD also has a very cool documentary about how the crew made the film.
