Review: The Highwaymen

The Netflix original film, the Highwaymen, is the true story of Texas Rangers Frank Hamer and Maney Gault who took down the gangsters Bonnie and Clyde.  Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson put on an acting clinic in this movie, and you will not be disappointed for taking the time to check out this film.

The movies starts off with Bonnie and Clyde helping some convicts make an escape from prison, and ultimately assisting with their crime spree.  The two Texas Rangers are recruited, un happily by Ma Ferguson (played by Kathy Bates), who is desperate to capture these criminals.  The film tells the story of these two lawmen who follow the trail of these two criminals to their end, when in a fierce shootout Bonnie and Clyde meet their demise.

We at 812review highly recommend The Highwaymen for an evening of entertainment.  Netflix is definitely showing their ability to attract great actors, and produce great films.
