Hell or High Water

Another really good movie. Two brothers going out robbing banks, and two Texas Rangers trying to track them down.

Jeff Bridges did an OUTSTANDING acting job in this movie. He got west Texas down right.

You will get a good laugh from the "Rattlesnake" waitress and the banter between Bridges and his Ranger partner.

Two thumbs off. Bought it on I Tunes, to watch in between the election results coming in last night. Was well worth the money.

Solid, well written movie.

Dammit. I did a search also. That is twice this week. Apologize.

Guess I need to start drinking coffee again.

I've spent some quality time killing coyotes in West Texas.

B5R summed it up ... 'Texas as fuck'.

Excellent movie - well done.

Ha.

I'll chime in on this one though since it's at the top. I missed both these reviews, but caught the trailer watching another flick and had to see it. We watched it last night. Great great movie.

Super lines in it too, great writing. I loved the scene with the dipshit at the gas station threatening one of the brothers:

"Boy, you'd think there was 10 of me." Had to stop and explain it to the wife as she didn't get it but great line.

Great flick. Foster, Pine, and Bridges were all on top of their game.
Best Moments for Gumby2/6spoilers)
-the impromptu robbery by the crazy brother
-Foster scaring off the Texans with withering automatic wpns fire
-the last scene with Bridges and Pine.. "I may give you peace, if you show up".. paraphrasing.

The dialogue was awesome.

Marcus Hamilton: Care to give it a watch while I wander over to that burger joint?

Alberto Parker: Would you order me something while you're there? I'm starving.

Marcus Hamilton: I doubt they serve pemmican.

Alberto Parker: You know I'm part Mexican, too.

Marcus Hamilton: Yeah, well, I'm gonna get to that when I'm through with the Indian insults, but it's gonna be a while.



Marcus Hamilton: Oh, who knows. Maybe one of these bank robbers is gonna want a gunfight and I can dodge my retirement in a blaze of glory.

Alberto Parker: Well, I've seen you shoot. There won't be much glory in it.

I agree, the banter between those two is what made the movie.

Thanks to everyone reviewing this, I rented last night.

Over the top screen writing. I cannot remember the last movie I saw that the dialog was so dead on and unencumbered.

Perhaps it was just me, but it seemed the audio was shitty until the first scene looking at both brothers thru the front window of the car. At that juncture seemed to improve substantially. Also something I'm noticing in movies more and more. . . .crap audio.

Finally saw this. The wife and I agreed it is outstanding. I don't remember the last time we watched a movie that we observed was so well done in so many aspects. The dialogue was gold. Thoroughly enjoyed it, maybe because the two of us have spent so many years in TX and NM. We're quite sure we recognized some of the locations. Everything about it was familiar.

In our opinion, this will become the national movie of the Republic of Texas.

Really good movie. Thought the outlaw brother was a little too much of the same character we've seen a million times. Could have done without the select fire M4 blazing away at the posse part. Only complaints.

Bridges is the spitting image of one of my mentors in the incident management world. Very cool. Like the short work made of the tough guy at the gas station. Good story and movie overall.

So I'm sheltered and only came across this today. Classic Texas lawman movie. Characters and dialogue was great. Made even better since it was just me and the dogs at home, nobody asking for a rewind or a "What did he say?".
