Movie Rating:What Doesn’t Kill You
I hadn’t heard anything about this when it came out. I completely missed it coming to theaters. Equally, even though I grew up in New England I had never heard of this story (armored car robbery and apparently a bunch of press about it.)
I’m a big fan of Mark Ruffalo, so this was a welcome find.
Ethan Hawke and Ruffalo play childhood friends Paulie and Brian, who are forced to survive on the tough streets of South Boston through a life of petty thievery. They join a local gang of criminals, but Brian finds it hard to reconcile his work and friendship with his wife, Amanda Peet (smokin’!).
It’s a great story, and Ruffalo conveys the trouble of blue collar addictions and the pressures that face ex cons.
This one’s well worth the money to rent. But I didn’t. I ripped the Blu-Ray version through handbrake. Great video, but audio wasn’t so good in only 2 channels. I need to focus more on how i setup handbrake.
