Movie Review - Forged

About the Movie
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.
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 Take on the Movie
A powerful, deep, and somewhat dark movie about redemption and what a father will do to make atonement for the sins of his past. Just in time for fathers day this movie reminds viewers that the love of a father knows no bounds and even those that may have sinned greatest in their lives may still be able to come back from the brink to find their humanity, their soul and their purpose, though not always in the way that you would imagine.

A riveting movie!
