It was okay. A lot of violence. Not much of a story line. To me it seemed like something was missing. The movie kept me waiting for more of the story to be told. Especialy in the area of develping the characters.

Amazing acting and great plot based on a true story. I just can't get over how Shia LeBouf and Tom Hardy able to play so many different roles SO well. It's definitely got some bloody violence but it's not enough to avoid the movie if you're not a fan of that sort of thing (I know I'm not). Do yourself a favor and go see it!

Saw Lawless last night and I must say it was a really great movie. Being from the South we have a given understanding of moonshiners which fueled the incomes of many families for many years Go see this movie!.

I had read some pretty negative reviews, so was braced for an uneven ride, but Lawless is strong, confident filmmaking with great visual style and indelible performances. Like Hillcoat's "The Proposition," the storytelling is about a series of incidents accumulating tension between the characters, so it's not a nonstop action flick as some of the promotions imply. It's also about mood and especially about the creation of folk mythology, which is very effectively done. There's been some criticism of Guy Pearce's "cartoonish" performance but given the character's actions and the archetypes at work, it didn't strike me or my companions as inappropriate or jarring. This guy will show up in your nightmares. Shia LaBoeuf is fine, Jason Clarke gives solid support, Jessica Chastain quietly commands your attention in every scene and Tom Hardy is just ASTONISHING. On the downside, he & Chastain don't have a lot of chemistry, and the film runs about fifteen minutes too long
