A lot of why this works is because of [Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson's] chemistry together.

Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson on a mission to hunt down Bonnie and Clyde? It's a hard idea to hate, and this Netflix movie is easy enough to enjoy.

It's hardly an insult to acknowledge that The Highwaymen is no classic on the level of Bonnie and Clyde. But it is, in its way, the perfect corrective to Penn's film.

No film is ever going unseat Bonnie and Clyde as the "definitive" telling of the crime duo's exploits but The Highwaymen's different outlook makes it a worthy, if lesser, companion piece.

The narrative, occasionally, perhaps in a bid for authenticity, moves fitfully. But the ending is tense and Costner and co-star Woody Harrelson (as his former partner) enjoy a robust onscreen chemistry.
March 29, 2019
As a film, The Highwaymen has some potholes. But as an eye-catching, promotable and heavily watched attraction, it seems sure to go the extra mile.
March 29, 2019
"The Highwaymen" is built to play off the chemistry of Costner and Harrelson, but the pair lacks flair, and settle too easily into cranky buddy cop clichés.
March 29, 2019
Costner and Harrelson get to talking, the light lands on their features just so, and the film casts its own curmudgeonly spell.

As an excuse to spend some time with Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson doing what Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson do, it'll do just fine.

Everything about it, however, smacks of an old-fashioned TV movie, and a pretty mediocre one at that.
March 28, 2019
The Highwaymen should have taken note: sometimes a story simply has no heroes.
March 27, 2019
Morally dubious and ultimately suspense-less
March 27, 2019
Director John Lee Hancock doesn't lag far behind Arthur Penn for rat-a-tat horror. But the spectacle that stays with us here is slower, more sere.
March 26, 2019
The Highwaymen is a crucial reminder that good Dad Movies aren't as easy to make as they look.
March 26, 2019
A compelling period piece that flips the script on two near-mythical outlaws.
March 26, 2019
An ultra-conservative and criminally dull exercise in selective revisionist history.
March 25, 2019
Like its predecessor, there's lots of cultural commentary going on in the moody and enjoyable Netflix take - issues of criminal determinism, ageism, poverty, moral compromising and, of course, celebrity.
March 22, 2019
Director John Lee Hancock (The Founder) mounts a valiant effort to stretch a solid genre picture into an American epic with the tale of two ex-Texas Rangers who get pressed back into service...to stop the popular murder couple Bonnie & Clyde.

For whatever reason, The Highwaymen exists.
