It seems the only way "The Newton Boys" can make good is by goin' bad! Faster than you can say "nitroglycerin," they've knocked over more than 80 banks from Texas to Canada. Now their sights are set on a multimillion-dollar Federal Reserve train robbery, but the Feds are about to turn up the heat! Based on the true-life chronicles of the Newton Boys, four brothers who arguably were the most prolific bank robbers in American history (circa the 1920's) and whose "crowning achievement" -- the $3 million heist of a mail train, the biggest haul ever for such a robbery -- was also their downfall.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: The Newton Boys uses a sharp cast and absorbing period detail to help make up for the frustrations of a story puzzlingly short on dramatic tension.
Fact-based, slow-paced '90s Western has some violence.
