About the Movie
They were brothers who became outlaws, and outlaws who became heroes...The three Bondurant boys (Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Jason Clarke), along with their sultry new hire (Jessica Chastain), command the most lucrative bootlegging operation in Franklin County, Virginia. The locals consider them “indestructible.” But the law—in the form of a corrupt special deputy (Guy Pearce)—wants a cut of their action, at any cost. When youngest brother Jack (LaBeouf) gets a taste of power with a deadly gangster (Gary Oldman) the whole business blows sky high. Based on the astonishing true story, the Bondurant brotherhood is the stuff of legend.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: With a dynamite cast, an iconic screenwriter in rocker Nick Cave and an Aussie director in John Hillcoat, you assume a new classic. What you get is an ambitious try.
Fresh: Much of the action may be nearly as grim as in director John Hillcoat's previous feature, "The Road" - "Lawless" is very bloody - but the scenery and production design are a whole lot nicer.
Fresh: You can sense the filth, and smell the rust, and feel the ingrained poverty that might well convince a family of survivors (of World War I and the Spanish flu) to make their fortune selling moonshine to their neighbors.
Fresh: It's slight and casual to the point of laziness, but it's straight fun, done with knowledge and a laconic pleasure. You could do far worse.
Incredible cast with zzzzz dialogue if you're fortunate enough to understand any of it. Bain has maybe 60 words the whole movie and Mr. Transformers is his regular quivering mess. Character development is virtually nil. Oh, I forgot about the 20 minute! courtship Mr. Transformers pulls to eat up the time. 4+5 stars is a joke.
Best action movie ever loved the conflict
Had me tensed up from the start!!
