Editorial Reviews

From Scott Cooper, the critically acclaimed writer and director of Crazy Heart, comes a gripping and powerful drama about family, fate, circumstance and justice. Russell Baze (Oscarr Winner Christian Bale*) leads a dead-end life - he works a meaningless steel mill job all day, and cares for his terminally ill father at night. When Russell's brother Rodney (Casey Affleck) returns home from Iraq, he is lured into one of the Northeast's most ruthless crime rings and mysteriously disappears. When the police fail to solve the case, Russell puts his life at risk in order to seek justice for his brother. This absorbing film features a knockout cast that includes Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe, Zoe Saldana and Sam Shepard.

Format: DVD
Dark, gritty, and saturated with rust, dust, and smog, Out of the Furnace is both a compelling ode to the people of the Rust Belt, bravely persevering through urban decay and rising crime...and a rather predictable thriller elevated by stunning work from Scott Cooper's amazing cast.

Main star Christian Bale continues to enthrall and impress, and he portrays blue collar worker Russell Baze with a gaunt, world-weary pride. Casey Affleck furthers his streak of edgy, excellent roles with Iraqi War-vet Rodney Baze, which might just be his best yet. Woody Harrelson's Appalachia crime boss is unpredictable and repulsive, with the size and strength to go head-to-head with Bale. Rounding out the terrific cast is a riveting Willem Dafoe, a sturdy Forrest Whitaker, and an underused Zoe Saldana. As I said before, it is thanks to Cooper's winning cast that his movie succeeds as it does.

Technically, the movie is excellent. The cinematography is saturated and grey almost to the point of post-apocalyptic-wasteland, but often strangely beautiful. However, if FURNACE has a fault, it would be that it is too focused on being gritty and grim to give any real insight into the people of the Rust Belt.

Continuing with cons, the thriller aspect of the film...is sadly, rather predictable. The plot is hardly original, with everything happening in exactly the way the average moviegoer forsees it to happen. This predictability hampers the film and reduces suspense.

Format: DVD
"Out of the Furnace" (2013 release; 106 min.) brings the story of 2 brothers, Russell and Rodney Baze (played by Christian Bale and Casey Affleck, respectively), living in a depressed steel mill town near Pittsburgh. As the movie opens, we witness a man (played by Woody Harrelson) getting into an argument with his date while they are watching a movie at the drive-in, leading eventually to the pummeling of a bystander who wants to stop the abuse. It makes for almost uncomfortable watching but it certainly established the Woody Harrelson character (we later learn his name is Curtis DeGroat) as one of the more brutal, mean and outright sadistic characters on the big screen in a long time. Meanwhile back to the Baze brothers, Russell causes a car crash, sending him to jail. Rodney is back from another tour of duty in Iraq, and dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder which lead him to get involved with illegal/underground bare-knuckle fights. Then Russell gets released from jail. At this point we are a good 30-35 min, into the movie. To tell you more of this plot-heavy movie would surely ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Several comments: this is the second movie from director Scott Cooper, after 2009's excellent "Crazy Heart" (the Jeff Bridges vehicle). Here again, Cooper tackles a tough relationship drama, albeit in a very different setting. Second, the parallels between this and "The Deer Hunter" are striking: both are set in a dying steel mill town, both deal with post-war stress (then: Vietnam, now: Iraq), both provide hunting as a possible form of temporary stress relief (down to the one-on-one confrontation between the hunter and the deer).

Format: DVD
Russ Baze (Christian Bale) is a blue collar worker in a mill town working at the local furnace in North Braddock, Pa. His father (Bingo O'Malley) is in his death bed, have given his life to the mill. Russ has a girlfriend Lena (Zoe Saldana) who lives with him. His brother Rodney (Casey Affleck) has a gambling problem and owes John Petty (William Dafoe) a bar owner who also sponsors unlicensed fights.

Russ becomes a guest at the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections after a drinking and driving accident. His dad dies, girlfriend leaves him and Rodney comes back from Iraq with some mental issues, but still owes John Petty. Rodney participates in the fights and becomes involved with the "Jersey mountain inbreds" of which Harlan (Woody Harrelson) is the worse with his own anger management issues and sense of ethics. This does not go well and forces Russell to get involved to the dismay of local police chief (Forest Whitaker) a man who is now living with Lena.

The acting was good. Woody Harrelson could have been on the screen more for me, but it appears they maximized his minor role with the opening scene. The film was more drama than the action thriller I was hoping for. Christian Bale's character was slow and thoughtful, yet he found himself in the kind of trouble generally reserved for those who are less so.

Very good second effort for director/writer/actor Scott Cooper.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

Check out the actors. All do an admirable job. One take on a man who has lost it all. Another movie with powerful silences. The only negative, lots of mumbling, causing the viewer to say "What?". This movie stays with you.
