Sometimes your battles choose you.


Out of the Furnace
Set during the time of the financial crisis back in 2008, in a so-called Rust Belt (depressed) area of the US, this is the tale of two brothers and how they cope. The younger one has already served three terms in Iraq and is suffering from PTSD, while the other finds himself in jail after an vehicle accident. When he gets out, his girlfriend is gone and the younger brother, who had been taking part in illegal fist fights, goes missing. The search is going to go into some very tough territory...

C. Fuchs quote iconThe film ends up coming off like a combo platter of things we've already seen, without putting enough of a fresh or interesting spin on the various elements, let alone the entire piece. That doesn't make any of those subplots or the overall effort bad by any means, but it does end up causing the offering to feel a bit longer than the nearly two hour run time.

Tomatometer quote iconWhile it may not make the most of its incredible cast, Out of the Furnace is still so packed with talent that it's hard to turn away.
