YMMV / Out of the Furnace

Go To

  • Complete Monster: Harlan DeGroat is a violent backwoods meth boss who begins the film at a drive-in movie with a date. When she thinks him having food poisoning is funny, DeGroat chokes her and beats her before pummeling a good Samaritan coming to her aid nearly to death. Later, when DeGroat is offered the chance to make money by a man who owes him named Petty, via Petty's fighter buddy Rodney taking a dive in a bare-knuckle fight, DeGroat ambushes them and has them both killed simply out of spite, pride and because Rodney did a bit too well before he took the dive. When Rodney's brother Russell tries to trap DeGroat later, DeGroat executes the unarmed, helpless bartender in the area before trying to flee.

How well does it match the trope?
