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.

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.

I was totally engrossed with these 3 brothers in that I wanted them to win their battle with Prohibition. I was brought into their world through suspense, action, inner struggle of survival, brotherly bond, and courtship. The different personalities of the brotherly bond made this a great story. I usually choose comedy over anything else, but this movie intrigued me. I am definitely pleased that I did and will see this movie again. Plus, Tom Hardy is not bad to look at either.
