Hell or High Water REVIEWS

  • Gritty and Engaging - Great Addition to the Crime Drama Genre!

    July 26th, 2016

    With Taylor Sheridan as the writer and David MacKenzie at the helm, I had high hopes for this movie. Both of their last respective projects (Sheridan - Sicario, MacKenzie - Starred Up) were gritty, violent, and engaging. All of those hold true for Hell or High Water.. The main characters, Chris Pine and Ben Foster turn in great performances. Ben F...

  • Refreshingly original, brilliantly acted, thoughtful western/crime film

    August 13th, 2016

    In a summer (or should that be year or decade) of vapid sequels, remakes, and overblown superhero catastrophes, who would have expected an entertaining, intelligent, well-crafted, suspenseful, character- driven, modern-day western with a brain. Riding on Taylor Sheridan's razor-sharp script and David Mackenzie's nuanced direction, Jeff Bridges, Ch...

  • Best Film This Year

    August 21st, 2016

    You need to see this movie. That could be this entire review, but I think I should describe how amazing this film is. Unlike most summer movies, the writing is fantastic, keeping me and the rest of the people watching with me attached to the movie and its characters even when they are just talking in a diner or something. Also unlike most other su...

  • So entertaining!

    June 21st, 2016

    The American western seems to be slowly making a comeback in recent years. With films such as The Rover, Slow West and True Grit there have been some interesting and unique approaches to this old genre. Hell or High Water fits right in with these mentioned films by containing a lot of comedy, engaging characters, and no holds barred violence. . Ch...

  • An Acting Clinic ... and a Great Film

    November 10th, 2016

    Jeff Bridges and Chris Pine put on an acting clinic.. Bridges at 66 has enough swagger, 'tude and testosterone to be an action figure.. Pine, always reliable as a A-lister, takes his craft to a whole new level. He is as far from Captain Kirk as the earth is from the moon. Superb work. And unforgettable.. The script is to die for. Intelligent to a ...

  • A Terrific Movie!

    August 16th, 2016

    David Mackenzie's 'Hell or High Water' is A Terrific Movie, that turns out to be an unexpected delight of the Summer. With underwhelming superhero movies or reboots doing the rounds, this Heist/Crime Motion-Picture offers a Solid Story, that is Sharply Written, Expertly Directed & Very Strongly Acted. . 'Hell or High Water' Synopsis: A divorced da...

  • Nothing like a real great modern day western movie!

    August 15th, 2016

    Look at Chris Pine trying to prove he's not just a pretty face doing these small films that show his range, and show how he can do accents, but seriously, Pine was totally in his element here.. Jeff bridges gave a great performance that matches his cowboy ethics in True Grit, playing a very old school Texas Ranger hunting down Pine and Ben Foster ...

  • A film worth seeking out.

    August 21st, 2016

    'Hell or High Water' is a bit of an odd duck. Mainly because it got a wide release. This is the only great film that has released in 2016 that got a wide release. I mean, there are only four or five films that I thought have been really great and all of them have either got basically no theater release or a limited viewing. I truly hope that this ...

  • Flawless bank robbers vs Texas Rangers action-drama and characters study

    August 19th, 2016

    "Hell or High Water" (2016 release; 105 min.) brings the story of two brothers, Toby and Tanner. As the movie opens, we see them rob two Texas Midlands Bank branches in rapid succession. It's only later that we learn why. After the second heist, the Texas Rangers are informed, and Marcus, who is going to retire in three weeks, wants to do one fina...

  • Excellently-written and acted

    August 20th, 2016

    This is definitely the type of simple film that many might dismiss when first hearing about it or seeing the promotional footage of it. What's really surprising about it is the amount of emotional and dramatic weight that it carries. It's not primarily interested in gun fights or car chases. Instead, it's interested in exploring the dynamics of ra...
