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
This is a superbly written heist film that is my favorite since Heat. I never get tired of watching it and it's an edge of your seat thriller with hair-raising and nail-biting moments.
Films like this are why we watch movies in the first place.
the reason it caught my was was because of chris pine
now that that is settled
the overall cast for this is AMAZING!!!
the story is simple and yet super effective! everyone carries this movie the way they should! their roles are perfect for them. the ending for this was ruined for some but i thought it was good!
just a simple bank robbery movie done the right way
Hell or High Water was very watchable. Drew me in and held me till the end.
Good performances from Pine and Bridges and Chris Pines brother. An intensity and quiet dramatic build to this one.
Had a rugged nearly western vibe (though set much more modern day).
Worth a watch.

Absolute classic... as good as a film gets in every facet. Amazing casting throughout led by Bridges, Pine, and absolutely riveting Ben Foster. The screenplay written by Tyler Sheridan is beyond impeccable in every detail. The perfectly detailed plot, character development, story arc and scene set ups are pure craftsmanship and then the dialogue which is intelligent, observant, funny, and on . No where near enough words to applaud it. Best screenplay in years and one for the ages and the Librarynof Congress collection.
