The Newton Boys Reviews

A handsome production that nicely evokes the 1920s and a likeable cast headed by McConaughey can't compensate for a Western-gangster film that's too diffuse and lacks a discernibel POV to be dramatically engaging.

Like the Newtons themselves, the film never goes for the kill.

Linklater seems to understand the root of McConaughey's appeal stems from his wild side. Casting McConaughey as someone noble and high-minded... is like hiring Madonna to play a housewife.

There's little nuance in the straightforward, chronological way the tale is told--it's hard to point to a scene that's worth discussing after you've left the theatre.

Linklater's genuine regard for his characters and fidelity to his setting are his strongest directorial traits.

Had this come out three months ago, it would be up for an Oscar for something.

These are fetching performers, but their built-in energy is about all The Newton Boys has going for it.
