You will burst into laughter within the first thirty seconds of watching Hell and High Water, which is supposed to be a drama rather than a comedy.
To really get to the point of Hell and High Water, this line sums it up – delivered by a Texas farmer sitting in the town’s diner amongst his fellow farmers.
Long enough to watch the banks robbing-me for over thirty years
The Texas attitude and dry heat is finely depicted, together with the Texas drolling accent.
Hell and High Water is a good old fashion bank robbery film, which has the payback attitude that actually stems-back to The Great Depression era of the 1920s and 30s Amercia; when many people including the weathly lost everything and suffered miserably, which is what banks have been doing ever since – being protected by the government to steal from the masses!
The bank robbers are two brothers Tanner (Ben Foster), who is the eldest and has just got out of prison and Toby Howard (Chris Pine), who has been struggling in the dusty fields they call home.
Everything that is on the otherside of the tracks comes to an end, and justice becomes only an inch away, with lead Texas Ranger investigator Marcus Hamilton (Jeff Bridges), who takes his job seriously, but at the pace of an exhausted rattlesnake.
The end of the film is rather poignant and without spoiling it, you just have to watch Hell and High Water.
You will not be disappointed with Hell and High Water, as it has been well-crafted and perfectly delivered by all that star in this film.
