Critics Consensus

Hatfields and McCoys is a violent and gritty spectacle that perhaps takes itself too seriously.

    Hard to believe it's been close to 7 years since this was made.. time flies indeed. One of the truly great TV miniseries, History hit lighting in a bottle with this one which they haven't came close to mastering in the years since. I do agree it takes itself a little too seriously; it isn't that fun in spots and the final climax is very negative and deep.. I was actually bummed out by it tbh. Costner's the likeable lead but Paxton makes it fun.. solid supporting cast too.

    This down-and-dirty epic doubles down on storied family intrigue while also emerging as the best made-for-TV western saga since AMC's 2006 Broken Trail.

    Amazing movie that gives a glimpse into the lives and fueds between these two families. The details in the sets, locations, costumes, and weapons used in this film were enough to make the viewer feel as though they stepped out of a time machine.

    You can say some of this story is cliche, but since it's all true (only a bit being reimagined for simplicity & drama) then you must realize any 'cliche' has been created by THIS.

    A melhor minisérie até os dias de hoje! Tudo é maravilhoso, o enredo, narrativa, fotografia, elenco, trilha sonora. É perfeito, aumentou o meu nível de exigência em relação a filmes do gênero.

    Excellent mini-series about the titular feuding families. Outside of Looney Tunes hillbilly versions of them, I’m not sure I ever really knew the true history of these families, which sounds as if this film was fairly faithful to the true story. Kevin Costner is the patriarch of the Hatfields and Bill Paxton is the patriarch of the McCoys. Both give strong and contrasting performances as once one brothers-in-arms fighting Union Army during the Civil War, now as men fighting each other over justice, revenge, and family honor. The film is naturalistically directed by Kevin Reynolds, who’s worked with Costner ever since the excellent “Fandango” to the infamous (though not nearly as bad as it’s reputation) “Waterworld.” The film is well writing and unlike many mini-series does not feel slow or drawn out. It also boast a strong supporting cast of many actor I hadn’t heard of before who are terrific, although there were song very good name actors in supporting parts including Tom Berenger, Powers Boothe, Jena Malone, and Mare Winningham. For fans of westerns or historical dramas of this time period, this is definitely one to check out.

    Gritty and dark... It will make you want to go apologize to anyone you've ever accidentally bumped into.

    Very well made, interesting and dramatic, the kind of show that catches your attention.
  • Jul 28, 2014
    Period piece that just drags on so dully that even the several fleeting bits of excitement are drudged.
  • May 05, 2014
    Strong performances and production values aside, the script by 'Deadwood' scribe Ted Mann offers both the miniseries' strongest and weakest point. It pumps up tension steadily and has a very realistic harshness to it, befitting the violent source, but it's often slackly paced, feeling better fitting for 6, 45 mins episodes than 3, 1hr & 30 mins ones.
