Two desperate brothers -- one a divorced father (Chris Pine), the other a hard-living ex-con (Ben Foster) -- commit a string of bank robberies in order to raise the money needed to protect their family farm from foreclosure. Meanwhile, an aging sheriff (Jeff Bridges) tracks the heists in an attempt to hunt down those responsible. This crime drama was written by Taylor Sheridan (Sicario) and directed by David Mackenzie (Starred Up).~Daniel Gelb
I expected this to be a good movie, but wow was I impressed. A modern western/cops & robbers story with seriously high-level filmmaking. Sort of a sister film to No Country for Old Men in quality, themes, and style. Great, clear HD transfer as well.
I recently purchased a New Samsung Q90T 65" (2020) Q-LED TV and matching Q950T Samsung Soundbar and 4K UHD Blu-ray Player and wanted to purchase a few really good Blu-ray Movies to show off the picture and ATMOS surround audio. This DVD does not disappoint, saw it on Netflix long ago and it was really good. Best Buy had it on sale at a really good price! Great movie with plenty of action scenes with very good Surround sound. And again I got it on sale! Better than going to the Movies, especially now since COVID-19.
Great cast with well-rounded characters who really add to the realism in this film. Having lived in Texas for many years in the past, I felt this film really did a great job of capturing the "Texas" lifestyle and mindset. It also shows the struggle of many people living in rural Texas.
This movie was such a pleasant surprise. I picked it up because it was only $6 at a Black Friday sale. I figured it wouldn't be a big loss if it turned out to be mediocre. As it turns out, the movie is fantastic. Great cast, great acting, great storyline, great cinematography. I've watched it three times since picking it up in 2019, and I'd be happy to watch it again, any time. If you haven't yet seen it, you really need to give this one a try. It's an overlooked gem.
