#FUMovieReviews Out Of The Furnace [Drama] 8/10

A revenge film that bucks the usual clichéd Hollywood trends, turning it’s back on standards that have been played to death. Out OfTheFurnace is slow paced & beautifully shot, with understated turns from a star studded cast, including Christian Bale, Woody Harrelson, Casey Afflek, Willem Defoe & more. Although the lack of stereotypical turns does on occasion lead to minor plot confusion, thanks to beautiful cinematography & restrained performances it never loses the viewer, right up until the final shot, an ode to Francis Ford Coppola’s Godfather 2.
