'Out of the Furnace' reviewed: Film spoiled by unsatisfying ending
The film is about Pennsylvania steel mill worker Russell Baze Bale , and his Iraq war veteran brother Rodney Affleck who cannot adjust to civilian life. Rodney makes money fighting bareknuckle for bar owner and small-time criminal John Petty Dafoe , who runs illegal gambling operations, but becomes so indebted due to gambling losses that he begs Petty for a big money fight. After Petty reluctantly arranges this with a ruthless backwoods criminal gang, Rodney disappears and his brother tries to find out what has happened. The film received a limited release in Los Angeles and New York City on December 4, , followed by a wide theatrical release on December 6. After getting off work at a North Braddock, Pennsylvania steel mill, Russell Baze sees his brother, Rodney, at a horse racing simulcast , where Rodney had just bet on a losing horse. Rodney reveals he is betting with money lent by John Petty, who owns a bar and runs several illegal games.

Weeks before I took the time to see Out of the Furnace on its opening day today, I saw an interview with the cast where star Christian Bale made a comment about how the script and the character really stuck with him before he'd ever agreed to take the role. It's a good thing I tend to go with my gut, because if you watch for two hours with an open mind, Out of the Furnace is certainly filled with dilemmas people across America STILL face on a daily basis -- and that alone is why it will hit too close to home.
For co-writer and director Scott Cooper, that twist was intentional.

Charlie Schmidlin. In the economically dire steel town of Braddock, Pennsylvania, Russell Baze Christian Bale enjoys a modest life toiling in the mill during the day before returning to his girlfriend Zoe Saldana , and also paying visits to his sick father at night. Popular on Indiewire. As Russell drives home from the bar one night, he T-bones a reversing car pulling out and kills all inside, including children; the drunken manslaughter charge condemns him to a brutal prison stay while Rodney witnesses his own horrors overseas. He is, at first, nothing but an oppressive force of evil, and as he devises a match with Dafoe for Rodney to take a dive, the question of just how many more genre tropes can fit into a single narrative emerges. As fatalistic ciphers their arcs are fairly clear, but the instinctive, measured way in which Cooper treats each conventional story beat—prolonged enormously in some cases, simply a brief scene in others—surprises you with its execution. Bale embodies Russell with perhaps his most unshowy performance to date, letting his drawled lines fall from his mouth with a trembling smile as matters quickly turn grim—a scene between him and Saldana who otherwise gains little traction in her role as he realizes their new relationship after prison is especially affecting.
