Forged movie review

An ex-thug and his son attempt to find a way to move past impossible circumstances to forge a bond that has been forever broken by the murder of the child's mother.

Film Synopsis:
Set in the cold and rusty steel mill town of Scranton, Pennsylvania, FORGED follows Chuco (Manny Perez) on his quest to redeem himself committing a horrific sin — the murder of his wife. After Chuco’s release from prison, his now 13-year-old, abused and homeless son, Machito (David Castro), seeks him out and simply mutters: “You killed my mother. Now I kill you.” As Chuco’s guilt and Machito’s need for a father take hold, they must both find a way to move past impossible circumstances to forge a bond that has been forever broken.

Engulfed by a bleak and lonely air, FORGED tells a profound, introverted story that is both exhilarating and heartfelt — an exploration into the deep bonds of family when one man’s search for redemption might beg for more than he can give.

My thoughts-I am going to warn you that this is a racy movie. It has alot of scenes and issues I would not have my son see. With that said, it is a movie that takes us into a very different world that is not peaches and cream. The movie unveils how the past comes to haunt us, and how actions have reactions. It is a film that leaves you wondering, take that for what its worth my own opinion. If you like this kind of movies, then add this one to your list.

***Disclosure-I received a copy of this movie to review. No compensation was received. These are my honest opinions.
