A gritty drama which centered on a residents of a steel tow, This movie almost reminds me of "The
Deer Hunter," judging by the tone of the movie. Christian Bale returns home from prison where he learned that his brother,played by Casey Affleck who returned from Iraq is involving in pit fighting. When his brother was killed, he goes after the persons responisable. Bale and Affleck gave great performance. Woody Harrelson in a terrific person, can play off as a bad guy. He reminds me of the character Frank Booth which is played by Dennis Hooper in the 1986 movie "Blue Velvet," Judging by the an incident at the Drive-in in the first few minutes of the movie Harrelson can play bad. In light of the recent death of Paul Walker, I have this advive to give you; appeciate the talent you see on the big screen right now, because tommorrow you won't be able to. Yes, I am saddened by his passing just like the rest of you.
A dark, depressing story of a bond between brothers. When one brother continually self-destructs, its up to the other to continually bail him out. Unfortunately, the concepts of violence and revenge overshadow any redeeming value of brothership. Long and agonizingly slow, it takes over two hours for the real plot to unfold.
Completely uninspiring, I wouldn't have wasted my money had I known. Don't be fooled by the presence of big-ticket actors.
