Synopsis


Harsh Times
An unstable Gulf War veteran with a savior complex receives a shocking wake-up call upon returning stateside and accepting a position with the Department of Homeland Security in the directorial debut of Training Day screenwriter David Ayer. Jim (Christian Bale) is a Gulf War veteran who believes his sworn duty to protect his fellow Americans extends to the streets of Los Angeles, and he longs to fulfill his destiny by joining the LAPD. Rejected by the force and left to ponder his future with his impoverished Mexican paramour -- whom he had intended on bringing to the city after joining the police -- the dejected and unemployed veteran is offered a second shot at helping his country when he is subsequently approached by the Department of Homeland Security. As Jim and his unemployed best friend, Mike (Freddy Rodriguez), carve a swath of chaos through the streets of Los Angeles, the weight of their American dream soon comes crashing down in a devastating blow that threatens to dash their high hopes for a bright future. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Outstanding movie that will keep your attention the whole time. The cinematography is great. I love the effects when Jim (Christian Bale) gets angry. The ending is unexpected and makes you think about what you would do in that situation.

    Bale playing a white ghetto boy is something different to watch but he pulled it off. That's why he's a great actor making great roles

    Harsh Times isn't a well-known movie and it's a gem. Christian Bale should have won some type of award for this movie.
