A Tale of Cops N’ Robbers at its Finest
The first time I watched this, I turned it off at about the 5-minute mark. I thought it was another dumb movie about inept country-bumpkins, which would rely on a mixture of slapstick and overly-done sappy and violent scenes in order to create enough of a pull to keep at least some audience members somewhat entertained.
How wrong I was.
I finally sat down and watched it with friends who insisted it was not what it appeared to be within the first few minutes of the film.
Without giving too much away, and having to use a spoiler tag, Hell or High Water is a story about two brothers who after the death of their mother, organize a series of (justified?) bank robberies. What ensues is a catch-me-if-you-can scenario with the pursuing “law” hell-bent on catching them, and them hell-bent on not being caught. In short, it is a typical story of cops and robbers (or so you would think), with an atypical, uncommon and unconventional narrative.
Given the plot, the remote setting and the almost nostalgic atmosphere and ambiance of the film, it is honestly a miracle, and more than a pleasant surprise, just how very gratifying and outstanding this film actually is.
A definite must-watch.
Definitely a “10”
Films like “Hell or High Water” are simply few and far between. A director who knows what he’s doing, a writer who wrote an extremely tight script, and top-notch acting make this one you do not want to miss.
Tanner and Toby Howard (both played remarkably by Ben Foster and Chris Pine) are two brothers whose mother has just passed. Texas Midlands Bank owns the mortgage on the house they occupy and they both know that oil has been discovered there. They decide to rob several different banks, pay off the mortgage, and in doing so, get even with the bank.
Enter Texas Ranger Marcus Hamilton (played beautifully by Jeff Bridges). I do not believe I have ever seen Jeff Bridges in a movie I did not like. He is one of the few sensational actors left in Hollywood who tackles each of his roles with gusto. In this film, he comes across as the Texas Ranger (played by Tommy Lee Jones in “No Country for Old Men” and the codger in “Gran Torino” played by Clint Eastwood). Getting ready for his retirement, this is his last opportunity to feel like he still has live in him. He and his partner set out to catch the robbers.
In a year of half-a$$ed attempts of “blockbusters” who exhibit no soul, this movie was like a breath of fresh air. As stated before, the acting–from top to bottom–ALONE makes this a must-see. And if that doesn’t sell it for you, the scene with the punk at the filling station sold it for me.
Rated “R” for violence and language, “Hell or High Water” is definitely a 10. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
