Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This neo-Western works splendidly as a self-contained tale of loyalty, loss and redemption, with polished turns from a smoldering Chris Pine and spunky Ben Foster.
Fresh: Just as it taps into a dying corner of American society, Hell or High Water resurrects the power of western mayhem done right.
Fresh: The sad, dusty towns against which this classically-oriented story play out are breathtakingly evocative, as are the bodies and faces of all the Texans we meet along the way.
Fresh: This is a damn good film and your feelings about the characters will oscillate throughout.
Best movie of the year
This movie should get movie of the year, but it won't. That's a shame that it's not getting the national recognition that it deserves. The writing, directing, acting, cinematography, score, all great and worthy of best in every award show. This is a movie I'll watch for years to come, thanks to all involved for producing a great film.
A Fantastic & Old-School Movie
This movie has to be one of my favorite movies I've seen this year--to date. Acting, all three actors, is incredible and deeply thought-provoking and visceral. When this good of a movie is made, that isn't a tentpole/major studio project, we should celebrate it.
This film is masterpiece. Great plot the feels just right from beginning to end, and leaves you thinking about it afterwards. Gorgeous shots, juxtoposing the wide-open terrain of the south/mid-west with the quiet desolation left by poverty. Makes just enough poignent social commentary to be relevant without banging you over the head with it. From top to bottom, one of the best movies in recent memory.
