Critic Reviews for Hell or High Water
Just as it taps into a dying corner of American society, Hell or High Water resurrects the power of western mayhem done right.
This neo-Western works splendidly as a self-contained tale of loyalty, loss and redemption, with polished turns from a smoldering Chris Pine and spunky Ben Foster.
All of the performers in this film, right down to the bit players, are quite good, but Bridges demonstrates yet again that he is one of the finest actors in America.
From a purely narrative perspective, there's nothing new here but like a new arrangement of a familiar tune, the slight changes make it fresh and enjoyable.
Hell or High Water isn't just a great time at the movies, it's one of the year's best pictures.
Audience Reviews for Hell or High Water
Fantastic neo-western with stellar acting performances, especially by Jeff Bridges. Each of his scenes is an absolute delight, from the hilarious humorous parts to the darker second half. The plot, dialogs and cinematography complete the engaging near-perfect picture of bank robbing and law-enforcement in Texas. Probably the most Texan film ever, I imagine.
Writer Taylor Sheridan pens another impressive story in Hell Or High Water. Led by solid performances by Jeff Bridges, Chris Pine & Ben Foster, the film is an intimate and striking tale that can hit home easily and keep the audience engaged. 4/5
A top notch cast delivers the goods in this primo modern day Western that doesn't forget the soul crunching loneliness of the wide open spaces as an unnamed cast member.
