This is a very entertaining crime drama. The three male leads all do a great job with their roles. The script is well done and the director David Mackenzie has created the right tone for the film. Overall I would highly recommend this film.

Carried by a terrific script and great performances, this gritty but fairly standard heist/shootout film is raised to a worthy Oscar contender level. Make no mistake, it's not going to win points for originality. But the film has such character and added depth, it is a cut above the rest. It perhaps turns a little "shootout-ish" towards the end but the tense finale is worth it.

This modern day morality play feels a lot like it belongs back in a simpler time of film-making. With no frills and barely any action, the film uses its powerhouse performances to tell a story of desperation, brotherhood, and revenge. There are a few twists that you don't see coming, but the film is, first and foremost, about its characters over any plot points, which allows some of the more powerful dialogue sequences to really pack a punch.

the underlying political messages are delivered a bit on the nose, and the plot is pretty bare bones, but the movie is carried by some strong performances, notably by ben foster. doubtful if this was an oscar contender, though.

'No Country ...' Lite with Bridges performing as 'Rooster Cogburn' Lite. I don't understand why so many sources (Criticker included) give away the reason for the bank robberies in their film synopsis. It doesn't ruin the film but it would play out better not knowing this fact in advance. Some memorable scenes and photography, but overall this is only 'above average'.

Hell or High Water is one of the unexpected surprises of 2016. This is a story of two incredibly raw and character driven pairings with great performances from Outlaw Brothers Ben Foster & Chris Pine and Texas Rangers Jeff Bridges & Gil Birmingham. The overall direction, cinematography and writing is stellar throughout and this well executed western, thriller, family and heist drama is all rolled into one incredibly satisfying experience. The best film of its kind since No Country For Old Men.

A modern day western crime drama. Foster and Pine were likable as the outlaw Howard brothers and Bridges is sympathetic as the Texas Ranger in pursuit. Possibly a tale of our times.

Highly pretentious and a little boring, but cool enough. Well...kinda. It's just very underwritten. You know, too convenient/expositional/crude/predictable/bland...the works. And it's pretty silly at times, especially in the last act. I like the setting and the subject matter, though. And, of course, the acting.

OK it might not be as good as No Country for Old Men (almost a decade ago!) but the themes, though sometimes heavy-handed, could not be more relevant today.

En blivande Oscars-vinnare (best film)? Hell and High Water har en sorgsen grundton: ämnet är fattigdom och parallellen till Vredens Druvor är given. Banker är i enhetlighet med sedvanlig amerikansk populism källan till allt ont. Men filmen är emellanåt också hysteriskt rolig, mycket tack vare Bridges, men också några förbipasserande karaktärer. De tre skådespelarna i centrum övertygar samtidigt som filmens plot är genomarbetad och säger oss någonting. Jag har i alla fall inte s

What Hell or High Water does extremely well is paint a portrait of modern West Texas. The film doesn't do much more than that, but it doesn't need to. Jeff Bridges is great, but Chris Pine is too pretty for his role.

Eh, there is a lot to like about this film, just be prepared to temper your expectations. It's a solid contemporary Western/Heist movie, but when it tries to be more than that, and starts emulating No Country for Old Men it falls well short. Bridges does a good job, in the Tommy Lee Jones type role, but I don't know if it's particularly Oscar worthy. In fact nothing about this film is particularly Oscar Worthy. A must see for fans of Westerns, otherwise you can pretty much take it or leave it.

A smart(ish), atmospheric modern western about humanity getting crushed under the wheels of the faster moving society. The writing is mostly good but there's a tendency to favour telling instead of showing. The music is, of course considering the talent involved, excellent.

Fairly solid thriller which doesn't do much that we haven't seen before. It has sufficient of everything - charismatic leads, a grizzled lawman, tension, atmosphere, scenery and music which fits well aesthetically - without ever truly excelling. I suppose the main bit that stands out is the atypical ending - a showdown of words between two poker players who are too smart to call each other's bluff. Well made but lacks the edge-of-the-seat feel of No Country For Old Men or Place Beyond The Pines.

Had some good moments and ended well, but it moved too slowly in the first two acts. The story and overall tone also felt like pretty well-worn territory. Fortunately it featured some nice cinematography and performances.
