Lawless-Great Story

I really wanted to like this movie so I didn't read the reviews before going. Considering how good the story is and wonderful performances I left the theatre wishing their was more. The story unfolded so slowly and the relationships between the characters was left wanting during many scenes because so much of the time was spent on violence.

My husband took me to see this and i'm not really into that type of story plot, but I loved it! It was exciting and the actors played the parts well. It also had some humor in it which made it even better. Took my 15yr old and she also loved it. Good movie !!!

back country brothers and prohibition

It's like a really great back story behind the TV show Boardwalk Empire, but the movie brings a brotherly attitude and a motto amongst them that is original and all its own. Similar feel to No Country for Old Men and Last Man Standing.

This movie paid great attention to detail and kept it true to the times. The actors all seemed to be 100% dedicated and lost in their roles. The entire movie kept me paying attention and waiting for the next scene. I am definitely buying this movie and will be seeing it in theaters again. 100% a 10/10 all the way!

Left unfulfilled

This is one of those kinds of "based on a true story" movies that you can't help thinking the actual true story just might be better than this film. Although the cast is superb, it always felt as if they were being held back, allowing the movie to just skim along the surface of what could have been a much deeper story. Perhaps their target audience are the younger set that just wanted to see LeBeouf in a role unsupported by Optimus Prime and then fill it in with lots of action and mixed facial expressions as he tries to grow emotionally though the scenes. The Optimus Prime in this film is played perfectly by Tom Hardy - deeply moving in his restraint. This is the only character where holding back makes his character stronger and more engaging. Also how was a great actor like Gary Oldham totally unused in this film. I was kept waiting for his character to emerge through the story. All in all, I wanted to know a lot more about these characters and was left unfulfilled.
