'Out of the Furnace' burns up the screen

"Out of the Furnace" wants to be a blue collar, gritty film, and it succeeds. Set in Braddock, Pennsylvania (near Pittsburgh) in 2008, the future for the steel mill workers looks about as bleak as the sky and the town. Two brothers pursue different paths: Russell still employed at the mill, younger Rodney floundering, heading off to Iraq.

This film needs sub-titles because either the actors are speaking Texan or they are mumbling or they are whispering. After a while, it hardly seems worth straining to hear what they're saying. It doesn't matter much because, in terms of action, the plot is not demanding.
