  • Critic Reviews of "Harsh Times"

    New York Observer

    Harsh Times is an hour-by-hour diary of two crazy, unreliable, irresponsible dudes trying to find a way to fit into the same society they hate, facing one hurdle after another until they appear to butcher half of Los Angeles.

    Jim is such a psycho and Mike is such a patsy, we don't care about these guys. We've seen dozens of more interesting head cases in dozens of smarter films.

    Harsh Times is so into its own nihilism, it sometimes forgets the humanity beneath the hurt.

    Orlando Sentinel
    November 10, 2006

    Endless scenes of the two guys riding along, venting and cursing and chugging beers play like acting-class exercises, badly written ones at that.

    Seattle Times
    November 10, 2006

    Ayer makes his directing debut with Harsh Times, which is so relentlessly grim that it occasionally goes over the top and invites derision.

    San Francisco Chronicle
    November 10, 2006

    For a neophyte director, Ayer displays a lot of style.
    May 05, 2008

    A crazy little film, modest in its scope but grand in its ambition. It paints it's story in loud primary colors, with intense pressure cooker characterizations.

    Murphy's Movie Reviews
    July 14, 2007

    HARSH TIMES is a portrait of a male-dominated world and inChristian Bale's fierce performance, Ayer has found the perfect actor. It's just unfortunate that the screenplay feels like a left-over from an era that has passed.

    just like its protagonist, Harsh Times is fatally flawed, but in a manner that still remains compelling to watch.
    March 27, 2007

    A movie that seems gritty and pointless for its first third, begins to grow in meaning as the pointlessness snowballs into absurdity and then tragedy.

    March 24, 2007

    It's an amazing performance, one of the best of the year, with Bale truly making you believe in this over-the-top character.

    Cinema em Cena
    December 29, 2006

    Por alguns instantes, o filme parece ter algo relevante a dizer sobre a desumanizaĆ§Ć£o provocada pela guerra ou o niilismo de uma geraĆ§Ć£o entediada e descrente, mas constatamos que quer apenas chocar, desperdiƧando as Ć³timas atuaƧƵes de Bale e Rodriguez.
