Harsh Times, another Christian Bale movie. I love and adore all the acting that Bale does. This movie however fails to deliver in what I would normally consider the quality level that he normally lives up to. The movie is slow and sometimes painful to watch. With Christian Bale I never think twice about purchasing a movie. I should have done my research though on this one. Bale plays essentially a street thug that feels his life has fallen apart when he didn’t make it to the LAPD on his last attempt. He lives the drunken life of a street thug and the violence, while may fit the tone of the movie does not quite gel properly. The movie feels disjointed and awkward.
Unless your really bored I can’t really recommend this film.
