Review: What Doesn't Kill You

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.
