Edgerton, Morrison and Hardy are good but Nolte is just spectacular. Other than that, the movie is really fun but the story is nothing new and the ending is not even working.

The story isn't particularly new, but the writing and the actors do a REALLY convincing job of making you believe in the characters struggles. Don't expect the movie to deliver on the many promises it makes though, they cut the last 10 minutes of film too early. That's my biggest gripe with it and why I wouldn't give this a higher rating.
