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.

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!

Shia Labeouf continues to suprise me, his performance is what we go to the movies for. Shia takes his character from a boy living in his brothers shadows to a man standing for whats right and defending his own. Tom Hardy is the strong silent type in this film, mainly does his thing with looks and grunts with sobering violence. That was my favorite thing about the film, the violence is so realistic and unsettling but it makes the movie so much more gritty which is perfect. The cast is right where they should be, i couldnt picture anyone else in their roles and the accent, being from the south myself was finally right for a change not to strong or over the top. Go see it and live along side these brothers for and hour and a half and you'll forget your even watching a movie and just lose yourself in this world.

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.

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”.
