The plot in this film is somewhat like an aircraft that spends a puzzlingly long time taxiing along the runway before it finally gets airborne. Even then, it is not until the final part that the joystick is forcefully pulled back, and with a great whoosh we are up for some very showy loop-the-loops and victory rolls. HARSH TIMES is both sophisticated and ambitious, with intriguing character development. Despite the slow start that had me, an avid fan of Christian Bale, shifting uncomfortably in my seat, it is never the less witty, ingenious, and a pleasure to watch. Christian Bale undoubtedly stole the show.
Way better than it seems
Harsh times is a very hard film to enjoy. Its a gritty drama, filled with violence, drugs and insanity. That’s why people seem to dismiss it, there’s so much in-you-face material that the deeper meaning gets ignored.
I can’t comment too much without spoiling, so I’ll just give a recommendation- watch the whole film and try too look past the IMDb score and your first impression of the characters.
Bale’s acting gets bashed a lot, but that’s part of his character. His psychotic behavior and insanity are part of the loud subtlety of this film.
Even if we ignore the plot, this movie has a great atmosphere that will appeal to people who enjoy realistic and dark portrayals of real life cities. It reminded me a lot of The Wire.
