Out of the Furnace (2013) Movie review; Woody Harrelson steals the show

You have some meaty strong performances in this flick which includes Casey Affleck who plays a returning soldier with mental issues, the dedicated Christian Bale who leaves his Batman uniform in the wardrobe for dark and moody performance which results in taking the viewer on a roller coaster of a journey which includes pit stops at sympathy city and cold heart mountain.

The man who really steals the show is … Woody Harrelson, man this guy is intimidating when he wants to be, with a wink back to his natural-born killers Woody let’s go with a stare that burns holes into your TV screen, good to see Woody back on top in a juicy role for a change.

As for the film, it’s a decent movie but the director ruins what could have been a thrilling movie and instead opts for a story that crawls into town and eventually rolls out, this is the difference between this movie being a smash and instead being what it is, an average film with great actors.

7/10

  1. Nice review. I really like Woody Harrelson (he was the only good thing about Now You See Me). It’s a shame that this film didn’t live up to the actors’ potential though.
