I am no easy critic when it comes to films but this piece was so tastefully done in every aspect. I did not want to stop watching it and cannot wait to see it again.

Great movie although I think it could have been less gory. The plot was excellent and kept me on the edge of my seat. The ending was not disappointing either. I'd go see it again!

I really like Tom Hardy. All man. He is one of those bad-***tough guys that doesn’t talk ****. Doesn’t need to. He’ll just take your head off and be done with it. This is a characteristic I think has been lost in many of the tough guys in movies.
Problem is, this movie wants to focus on the exploits of Jack, the youngest brother. A conflicted and insecure vagina, totally out of place compared with his brothers. So, what could have been an interesting story about outlaws, like the marketing suggested, the film becomes a coming-of-age story á la “I’m OK You’re OK”.

Lawless is a film that you're either going to relish about, or going to completely shut out. I say this because, the movie is not fast paced, nor does it have a lot of action, and in today's society that is what most people want when they see films on the big screen. If you like action packed movies, this is not down your ally, and should probably check out Expendables 2, which I have not seen yet? I enjoyed the hell out of this film and defiantly will see this movie again some time in the near future. I was atonished by how the movie looked, the set pieces were right on point with the western feel. Good make-up effects for the bloody and beaten faces that most all characters went through in the film. With amazing acting, and great character development, Lawless ends up being worth the full price admission. Back to the question, does Shia LeBeouf finally grow up in this film? "Yes, he certainly becomes a man in Lawless," which i'm very glad to see.

Great movie...Good casting with the characters, and great acting. The scenery and the movie sets were very realistic and set the mood for the entire movie. It was very graphic with the violence and the blood shed and had to close my eyes a few times. Tom Hardy played a great role with little words, reminded me of a Kevin Costner type character and acting.
Very good with the type of subject matter being featured.
