Hell or High Water - Tough guy movie for men!

Hell or High Water is that rare crime drama that has a timeless appeal to it. Despite clearly taking place in 21st century Texas, it harkens back to the westerns of old. The impressive cinematography and the scenery is beautiful;proof that a dark story with mature themes does not need to look like it was shot with the lens cap on. Chris Pine and Ben Foster give great performances as two brothers turned bank robbers. Jeff Bridges and Gil Birmingham play the Texas Rangers assigned to track them down. It's a tense game of cat and mouse that is surprisingly humorous. Kudos to the script for making both sides endearing to the audience. Summer 2016 was perhaps the worst in years for movies, but this is an ideal alternative for those bored of blockbusters.

This naturally woven subtext is all in service to story and can be embraced as much as the viewer pleases. The main focus here is character. These four main players are absolutely terrific in their respected roles. We feel the same amount of sympathy and determination for each pair of opposing forces. The two c...
