    A bit weird he’s “punished for being a good person” when he’s actually locked up for his criminal work and then acts as something of a contract killer.

      Yeah he’s a drug dealer. Don’t know where good comes into play.

        The movie does seem to try pretty hard to make you think Bradley is an awesome dude. Despite the fact he’s ready, willing, and able to murder and maim, and that his actions lead to his wife being kidnapped, the movie still seems to frame him as a paragon of noble necessity.

        That being said, maybe Zahler does have a more realistic idea of the character, and maybe he expects us to be able to decode that ourselves, but I did very much get the feeling we’re not supposed to think Bradley is a bad person.

          Obviously, super late to respond as I just watched the film, but that’s your sentimentalities if you think the movie is trying to portray him as an awesome dude it seems like you, yourself think of him as an awesome dude. The character is portrayed as someone who is used to everything going wrong and instead of making excuses just accepts what happens and does what he thinks is the best solution at the time. The character isn’t a mastermind there are a ton of ways to solve all of his issues better, but throughout the film, he sticks to what he knows and does his best to protect what he cares about. If you think that portrays him as a good or awesome guy that’s on you.
