Wildly electrifying, "Bonnie and Clyde" kicked off the evolution of cinema during the early days of the American New Wave.

This snappy, energetic and shockingly violent crime dramedy is wonderfully disorienting. A standout in the 60s film movement, with 2 fantastic lead performances, it's a sly and immensely entertaining critique of Western manhood, the American dream, and our futile search for fictional fame and Hollywood adventure.

Dull and flawed, Bonnie and Clyde is an overrated tale of a potential entertaining story - but it nonetheless brings some fine acting to compensate, especially Faye Dunaway's star turn.

Was impress by the movie upon 1st viewing. Ending is consider violent for its time. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway met while he is trying to steal her mum's car.

A true gangster classic. Both Beatty and Dunaway are superb in this biographical account of the ruthless murderous couple. Just as impactful as it was back in 1967. It won the Oscar for Best Picture.

A classic film of American cinema, Bonnie and Clyde is led by strong performances from all of its main and supporting characters as well as a fairly accurate portrayal of the lives of the infamous criminals. Bonnie and Clyde is one film that you should for sure watch once in your lifetime

Bonnie and Clyde is a great crime drama.

A Hollywood benchmark with its depiction of violence, sex and women.

Violent and bloody for the ending. Great performance from Blanche! She is hilarious. The story is quite entertaining. "We rob banks!" I can't help falling in love with the bad guys!

"Oh lorde," is right. Major technical failures throughout, in addition to headache giving dialogue just makes you want to scream that.

-IGNORE THIS "OUT OF FIVE" RATING
4/4
One of the greatest movies ever made, a milestone of American cinema detailing famous outlaws and their publicity from regular citizens. Broke the rules of violence shown on film (that stirred quite an amount of controversy in its day, and shocked audiences) but was raved by critics and now it's rightfully regarded as an American classic; many film buffs consider this to be the movie that was responsible for launching several careers. Estelle Parsons took home Best Supporting Actress Oscar although every performance is parallel. Burnett Guffey's audacious Cinematography also Won an Oscar for this masterpiece. Director Arthur Penn's best film. Don't miss this!

Loved it, but hated glorifying these murderers.

It is said that the culture of my own country, does sometimes make heroes out of criminals (19th century bushrangers for example).

Apart from the violence, I had to ask myself, if I was being persuaded to feel sympathy for these characters? I do not know.

Good performances and cinematography with a style somewhat ahead of its time. This movie is more comedy and romance rather than drama and violence. Considered to be one of the greatest gangster films of all time. AAN 1001

Very slow, with an erratic story line. It's only saving grace is the chemistry between the lead actors.

One of the films credited with dismantling the Hayes Code, Bonnie and Clyde didn't just challenge the choking standards, it beat them up and took its lunch money. Journalists Robert Benton and David Newman mined Benton's childhood memories of hearing folk tales about the titular 1930s bank robbers and splayed it out into a tale that was condemned for glorifying vigilantism, sex and violence. Unschooled in three-act structures, Benton and Newman didn't worry about consistency of tone, preferring to emulate the mercurial mood of the French New Wave classics they idolized by writing a script that was funny, romantic, sad and violent all at once. Arthur Penn was entrusted with the reins, directing almost everyone to an Oscar nom and using camera methods that seem beyond the technical limits of the time. So, controversy AND quality? Why did this formula die?

A movie that has managed to become as iconic as the real life criminals it portrays. It is interesting to watch considering it was so "bold" and "controversial" when it was initially released. Tame by today's standards, the film is still solid. The movie star turns by Beatty and Dunaway feel false, but supporting cast is amazing -- particularly Estelle Parsons. And, the final scene remains surprisingly grim.

Best Love-Story ever made..

unconvincing romantic angle is portrayed by Bonnie and clyde and a loose plot serve to undermine the heist action and shootouts
