This movie was pretty violent, gritty and kept you on the edge of your seat. We really enjoyed it. Enjoyed might not quite be the right word, perhaps enthralled or riveted would be better words to describe how we felt. Some scenes were really horrendous. We found Jack's character a bit annoying because he kept getting everyone around him in trouble by not thinking things through clearly. The cinematography was wonderful and the acting was excellent. It was definitely worth going to but be prepared for violence.

Lawless is a great movies with a lot of action. My husband and I really loved the movie. The good guys were full of action and true to their character even if they were bootlggers. It show how the law and government was so crooked at that time (even now ). The movie was very exciting. We loved it. It is not for kids only over 16.

Incredible acting

One of the best films I've seen this year. Incredible acting, superb casting and directing. The intense mood grabbed me right from the start. Guy Pearce and Tom Hardy were both gripping in their roles. Plan to see it again tonight!

Academy Award Material for almost all the stars. This movie was great and it was a true story, which I like. After this movie I definetly want to learn more about these guys, and the 30's do seem like an interesting time. I loved the plot and the scenery of West Virgina was beautiful, despite the violence that took place but that's what was what the plot was about and it was never too gory, they showed enough to make it real. I would nominate Shia Lebeauf as Best Actor and Tom Hardy and Guy Pierce for Best Supporting Actor. This is for people who the read the book, and the people who want to see a good drama and action fans, but take my word for it, see it for yourselves.

We liked the movie a lot. There were no bad performances-great acting and casting. Guy Pearce is the quintessential smarmy bad guy. Jessica Chastain and Mia W. were especially beautiful and all the male leads were first rate. The plot (based on a book & apparently a "true story" as they say) was gripping. If I don't have to check my iphone for the time, I know I'm enjoying a movie. Beautifully filmed in a smoky, gloomy, prohibition-era style. This is appropriately rated R because of the violence. This is not a good movie for kids. Yes, there is foul language a little nudity, but it's the violence that's very graphic. Heed the rating for this reason.
