There's a reason why you probably haven't heard of Frank Hamer and Maney Gault before, and this lightweight film doesn't make much of a case for them having a story worth telling.

The Highwaymen wants to plumb its themes' moral ambiguity, but it wants to have a cut-and-dry ending even more.

Given its 50 million dollar budget, I can't help but wonder how that could have been better spent taking risks on lesser known, but more inspiring stories than this.

Above all, what The Highwaymen is not is the Bonnie and Clyde story, shifting the focus in a way that proves unsatisfying.

The Highwaymen is made for a movie night in; unlike some of the platform's other offerings, no one will make the argument that you must see this perfectly OK film on the big screen.

John Lee Hancock's intentions are honored and pure, but the celebrity commentaries and aimed cinematic crosshairs miss a more significant mark of meaty execution.

The Highwaymen has plenty of promising qualities, but unfortunately, they're not quite enough to make it a memorable film.

The Highwaymen would have been behind the times even 50 years ago.
April 3, 2019
The Highwaymen is slow-moving and the dialogue is forgettable.

In an age when there's daily discourse on police brutality and mass shootings, the Highwaymen decides that now is the best time to tell the story of a couple of policemen who emptied 130 rounds into two twenty-somethings.

I don't see many people opening up Netflix, starting this, and then actually choosing to finish it.
April 1, 2019
Too bad 'The Highwaymen' plods along with so many similar scenes. Amusing banter between the co-stars helps but not enough to prevent the urge to nod off a bit.
April 1, 2019
Sadly, The Highwaymen somehow turns this true and exciting story into a drawn-out, sleepy road movie that fails to add anything to their world.
April 1, 2019
The Highwaymen doesn't belong on the road. It's a clunker in need of too many repairs.

Since we know what the ending is going to be, the journey in this film has to be interesting, and it just isn't, despite fine performances by Costner and Harrelson.
March 30, 2019
Costner comes close to bringing this one over the finish line. Some supporting players seem like they're playing dress up, but he's perfectly at home in this uneven tale.

Do Hamer and Gault get vindicated in this version? Absolutely. Is it worth a look? Well, If you are fascinated with the legend of Bonnie and Clyde, you will be intrigued. Chemistry and pairing of Kevin Costner with Woody Harrelson is perfect

The Highwaymen doesn't have quite enough gas in its tank to get over its steep hill.

A film condemned to go by unnoticed. [Full Review in Spanish]

The filmmakers here were seemingly so sure on which side of the line Hamer and Gault stood that they missed any opportunity to make the audience wonder.
