Storyline Heading
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 is lured into one of the most violent and ruthless crime rings in the Northeast -- a mistake that will almost cost him everything. Once released, Russell must choose between his own freedom, or risk it all to seek justice for his brother.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This is an extremely violent crime drama aimed at adult moviegoers, primarily males. This is mainly a showcase for Christian Bale, but while some of the stars, such as Zoe Saldana and Forest Whitaker, have fairly small parts, others in the cast also have juicy roles, such as Woody Harrelson and Casey Affleck. Brutal violence, constant language, and some drug use make the film inappropriate for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Out of the Furnace features some nice performances and is deliciously atmospheric but it never achieves its goal of being a compelling meditation...

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average I wish there were more films like "Out of the Furnace," only good.

USA Today Full Review
Good Bale's is a pitch-perfect, understated performance in this involving neo-noir thriller. Just as impressive — and blood-curdling — is the menacing performance by Woody Harrelson as Harlan DeGroat, a vicious meth-dealer hillbilly with whom Russell and Rodney tangle.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Good ...a well-acted, beautifully filmed, utterly depressing chronicle of revenge and thwarted dreams in post-industrial America.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 100 moviegoers:
This is a classic example of why moviegoer reviews are so much better than professional critic reviews. Critics rated "Out of the Furnace" amazingly high while moviegoers were mostly disappointed. A small percentage of the adult males and females rated it very high but two-thirds to three-quarters of them rated it low to very low. Equally important is the relatively low percentage of moviegoers who indicated that they would recommend "Out of the Furnace" to others. It's actually quite rare to see a movie receive such a high percentage of mediocre to bad reviews.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Russell Baze (Christian Bale) and his younger brother Rodney (Casey Affleck) were born and raised in Braddock, Pennsylvania, a hardscrabble Rust Belt hamlet that has been home to generations of American steel workers. Russell followed their father into the mills, while Rodney took the only other option open to young men like him and enlisted in the Army, hoping to find a better life outside of Braddock.

But after four brutal tours of duty in Iraq, an emotionally and physically depleted Rodney returns to a recession-weary town that offers even fewer options than before he left. When a cruel twist of fate lands Russell in prison, his younger brother tries to make ends meet by betting on horses and competing as a bare-knuckle boxer. Mired in debt, he soon finds himself enmeshed with a vicious sociopath, Harlan DeGroat (Woody Harrelson), the leader of a ruthless backwoods crime ring in the New Jersey Ramapo Mountains.

When Rodney suddenly disappears shortly after his brother is released from prison, Russell descends into a corrupt and violent-fueled world seeking answers. Embarking on a road that few dare to travel, Russell will stop at nothing to bring his brother home.
