Christian Bale knows how to play psychological parts really well, this being a prime example. The viewer can follow in the footsteps of his ensuing breakdown through his actions and the reasons he does what he does. His violent past plays a major role in th emovie and leads to the finale quite smoothly but predictably. Overall a good watch if given the time, not as much action as one would expect,... read more

An unconvincing urban road movie that would have little to no lasting effect if it wasn't for the brilliant Christian Bale and Freddy Rodriguez. This script is nowhere near as good as it promised to be, in fact the dialogue feels grossly outdated and almost childlike.

An average movie

Back in 2005, Christian Bale finally broke through with ‘Batman Begins’ but the same year, he also starred in this forgotten drama. Honestly, I thought it was not bad at all. I must admit though, the intro didn’t really convince me. I mean, it was one of the most cheap-ass war scenes I have ever scene and it was pretty obvious those were not done in the Middle East (apparently, the whole thi... read more

"Bale is an asshole and quite crazy. Him and Freddy Rodríguez smoke pot, drink and drive around doing small shitty things and "looking for work". I like Ayer's movies but this wasn't his best. The acting was pretty good and Bale's character going crazier (because PTSD) especially was good. Also there was a few minutes of J.K Simmons and Terry Crews."

"9/8 Freddy Rodriguez has to choose between hanging out at home with his girlfriend and finding a job, which would be the right choice because staying at home and finding a job symbolizes putting life on the right tracks, and hanging out with Christian Bale doing nothing, which would be the wrong choice, because Bale gives a bad influence and he has a post-traumatic stress disorder and even while being an ex-soldier who is searching for a career in law enforcement and is even somewhat successful"
