But when a cruel twist of fate lands Russell in prison, his brother is lured into one of the most violent and ruthless crime rings in the Northeast - a mistake that will almost cost him everything. 

Once released, Russell must choose between his own freedom, or risk it all to seek justice for his brother.His one comfort is his relationship with the beautiful Lena Warren (Zoe Saldana). However, one fateful evening changes everything for Russell. When he returns to town, years later, his father has passed away, hes lost Lena to local sheriff Wesley Barnes (Forrest Whittaker),and his brother is gone.

Review :

It's the story of Rusell searching for his and his brother's freedom. Rusell fights everything out for his brother even he went in those area where law enforcement agencies have no reach.Its a bit predictable Heroic Affair where Hero wins at the end and the Villain bites the dust. Bale and Herrelson has acted their heart out like they always do specially Herlen DeGroat he is the showstealer of the movie,you dont see him like this oftenly and i was so stunned by his performance. 

I watched this movie just cause of Bale,but its not a memorable role by him and i was a bit disappointed here cause director could have used him more. Zoe Saldana,she was good and played her part well so as his husband the Sheriff nothing memorable at all. It was a adaptation of a novel so what should i say about the story i can just say the justice to the novel wasn't done. Scott Cooper's Crazy Heart was a good family Drama but this one is just O.K or i can say one time watch for Woody Herrelson. Bale Fans Dont Watch this one cause it has nothing special to offer.

"You have seen this type of cinema before,so if you miss this one
dont worry at all cause you have missed nothing"
