Just watched it this week.
this is like the 6th or 7th review/suggestion stating that this is a great movie.....gonna have to add this one to my ever growing Watch List!
I watched this on Netflix last week. I enjoyed it.
Long gone are the days when a man could walk into a gun store and buy machine guns without any kind of Federal approval.
I'm curious to know how close the movie followed the real history.
The best Netflix movie I’ve ever saw. Some liberty was taken with story line and weapons.
Watched It last night Really Good
That big pig was gonna light into the dude til that there ranger fella called em off!
I might actually watch this, but I will have to read up on Bonnie & Clyde first. Seen their car and read short monographs...
Yep! Watched it twice already. It’s great.
My Paternal grandparents are from that east Texas country that Bonnie and Clyde ran around in.
My grandma told us stories about how they were stopped one night out on a lonely country road by the law and approached with caution just because they might have been B&C.
Different times indeed! Those three boys put working hard building fence and not thinking anything about a guy pulling up to do target practice.
I highly recommend it to everyone.
Just to clarify The Highwaymen focuses on Hamer and Gault and their pursuit of B&C. I've talked about this film on other forums, greatly enjoyed it and accepted the historic liberties as it's a dramatization. Costner and Harrelson do great jobs with their characters. From the reading I've done over the years on Hamer I feel Costner really brought him off the pages.
The gunstore scene was especially entertaining.
My other favorite viewing on Netflix was "Bodyguard" (NOT the Whitney Houston movie LOL) but the British production.
Very well done. I never knew Bonnie had a limp, but in fact she did.
I really enjoyed it but it did take two work nights to get through so that says I wasnt totally grasped by it.
Long, but pretty good movie. I really should go by the B&C museum one day, I live not too far from where it ended.
I enjoyed it, especially when Hamer "went shopping".....Can you imagine how much fun that would be now?. I think I am going to have to put lighting off a Thompson on full auto on my bucket list. Have already "fam fired" an M60, SAW...and of course an M-4 that I also slept with a little. It was pretty cuddly actually along with my poncho liner...lol.
Yep. I’m watching that one tonight.

Watched this one recently as well and really enjoyed it, reminded me of "Public Enemies" to a degree.
I watched it a couple of days ago. Anymore, I seem to not be able to find anything worth spending my time watching. But this one kept my attention! Woody was great! Kevin played his role great too. This is back when criminals were not the VICTIMS that the left spins today.
The guns of Bonnie and Clyde! Taken at the Texas Ranger Museum in Waco Texas.
I don’t know about that BLT sandwich Bonnie had in her lap (in the movie) but for all you addicts, she did reportedly have a Colt 45 in her lap. It fell to the floorboard in front of her, where it was recovered. It’s in the Texas Prison Museum in Huntsville.
They’re buried here in Dallas (but in separate cemeteries).
I’ve got a question. Why only on Netflix
Why not release it on “the big screen” via cinemas?
(Or why not do both?). I’m sure there’s enough demand ($$) for a GOOD movie. Of all the crummy stuff presently at the cinema, I’ve got to believe a “good” movie would make millions.
“Follow the money” is usually always true but I can’t figure out why this was a restricted release only through Netflix. The question in my mind is still the “why” of it?
