Who vs. Who: Jim Luther Davis (Christian Bale) vs. Gangsters
In the slept-on thriller Harsh Times, Christian Bale plays an ex-Army soldier who's got a few loose screws. The film's best scene is a scathing beatdown of some troublemaking Mexican gangbangers, clad in standard apparel: black hoodies, long-sleeve flannels and low-top sneakers. Aside from the accessories game being on-point complete with lapel pin, all-black watch and signet ring, this scene provides an instant quotable from Bale: "Badass kicks, dawg. You're lucky you got little bitch feet, or else I'd be stompin' around in them motherfuckers."
