Bale has given a number of memorable performances, but this just might be his best work to date.

It's Bale, and his almost biblical quest for justice, who burns his way into your soul.
Cooper seems to make actors feel safe and willing to expose themselves in ways they ordinarily might not, and time and again he takes scenes to places of unexpected emotional power.
In the meaty bad guy role, Harrelson entertainingly goes all the way, putting him way out there on the ledge with any of your favorite loonies, psychos and unhinged nutjobs.
Bale's is a pitch-perfect, understated performance in this involving neo-noir thriller.
Affleck, in particular, finds something fierce and noble in uneven material and in his character's rage. He's not like any other actor in American movies.
Cooper may have gone overboard in delineating the hardships of blue-collar life in Out of the Furnace. But he has a gift for getting actors to put some muscle into their work, and enough finesse to make sure the sweat doesn't show.
Devolves from an electrifying character study into a disappointing tale of trackdown and revenge.
