Even if this film feels like it didn’t quite reach its potential, it’s still a fairly watchable Prohibition-era drama. The cast is excellent with Tom Hardy leading the way and picking up the slack for Shia LaBeouf. Gary Oldman was shockingly underutilized though and Guy Pearce is great for most of the film, but goes a bit off the rails at the end. The action is solid, however the story doesn’t really seem to go anywhere and set up a lot of lingering plot threads. Lawless isn’t a masterpiece by any means, but it’s a worthwhile watch.
Good gangster thriller
Lawless has it’s unintentionally laughable moments and annoyingly montages through some of the more interesting parts but it’s still a good gangster thriller. It’s got solid production values, John Hillcoat’s direction is really good and it’s beautifully filmed. The action is thrilling and the soundtrack is great. Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy both give great performances. Mia Wasikowska, Dane DeHaan, Jason Clarke, Guy Pearce and Gary Oldman are all really good but Jessica Chastain is unfortunately wasted in a bland role.
