Hell Or High Water is an emotional and thought-provoking movie from director David Mackenzie.

Starring Jeff Bridges (The Big Lebowski The DudeTrue Grit) and Chris Pine.

 

The movie is a story about two brothers. Toby, a straight-living, divorced father trying to make a better life for his son; and Tanner, a short-tempered ex-con with a loose trigger finger, come together to rob branch after branch of the bank that is foreclosing on their family land.

The hold-ups are part of a last-ditch scheme to take back a future that powerful forces beyond their control have stolen from under their feet. Vengeance seems to be theirs until they find themselves in the crossfires of a relentless, foul-mouthed Texas Ranger looking for one last triumph on the eve of his retirement.

As the brothers plot a final bank heist to complete their plan, a showdown looms at the crossroads where the last honest lawman and a pair of brothers with nothing to live for except family collide.

Five stars out of five. The movie ticks all the boxes for a crime drama.
