overcoming the banks ruthless plan to screw the commom man
Jeff Bridges has become one of the best actors around. He is so relaxed and convincing in this movie. Without him I probably would give it one star.
Anyone who rated this movie above a 1 must have not really watched it! One moment I think we are in the '80s with talk of VCRs and then the next a girl is sending a message on an iPhone with iMessage. REALLY!! This is the slowest movie ever :(
I've never actually seen this movie but if I had, I think I would've liked it.
5 out of 5 stars movie, not too often that can be said, highly recommended
Excellent movie! It doesn't seem like there will be any funny bits in it, but you'll be surprised how many times you have a chuckle. Highly recommend!
Excellent! The story, the acting, the ending..perfection.
Poor movie... maybe they could shoot it next time while Jeff Bridges takes the plug of chewing tobacco out of his mouth or ask him to speak like a person ...the story line made me think at the end-What was the point of this movie? I just didn't get it.
What a welcome return of the western maintaining many of the old west themes despite being so contemporary. Rancher v the bank, robberies of latter and male relationships even if they do involve a lot of guns. It's Bonnie and Clyde meets My Darling Clementine with a bit of Thelma and Louise thrown in - again male. Wouldn't change a thing. Such a worthy picture.
A near perfect package. Well thought out adult script and exceptionally interesting and developed characters. This should capture a number of award nominations. Best movie in the last few years.
Casting is great and all did a great job..directing however, is amateur...and storyline just idiotic at times...didn't flow as a good plot as it jumped around too much..and just awful lines for Bridges.
Very entertaining. Jeff Bridges awesome! A must see.
Excellent movie, great acting wonderfully cast actors, I am looking for Oscar nomination because its oscar worthy!!
Loved this movie.
I am a bug Beau Bridges fan and also Chris Pine. Both these guys were fabulous in this movie. It was a little different, sort of like an old time western, adventure, 2 Texas bank robbers. I noticed a mature audience, obviously fans of good movies!
Good storyline. Gripping; intelligent. Well worth the view
Interesting plot. Could have moved a bit faster. All in all, pretty good.
Really good movie that was very well acted and directed. A different kind of role for Chris Pine and he was terrific.
Great plot, great acting. Balanced portrait of the haves and have-nots in America today showing a broad perspective of what it takes to make a living, sometimes barely.
I thought it was great movie, very entertaining. Jeff Bridges was great, as was all the actors. loved seeing a bit of west Texas in the background.
good plot and puts at stake themes like the problem of native Americans and their forfeted lands, race amd inhereted poverty, Interesting sound track but slow rhythm , did not keep us engaged. Expected more.
Old and new wests collide as two brothers rob branches of a specific bank in order to pay that same bank off before it can foreclose on the family ranch. Two Texas Rangers are on the case, with one just about to retire. Smart, focused and timely. Sharp performances, lovely direction and a solid plot. One of the best of this or any other year.
Completely engaging. Wonderful performances, Chris Pine's best yet. Powerful story, well told.
Good first effort, but self-indulgent, maybe it's an American morality tale.
Excellent movie and much more than an action flic. Clever dialogue, great cast and beautifully shot amid the apocalyptic Texas landscape where the American dream went to die. Jeff Bridges and Ben Foster in particular are superb. As Bridges' character says "This will haunt you for the rest of your life" and that's pretty much how the movie leaves you.
