Hell or High Water is a modern version of its genre that does not disappoint. It is so entertaining seeing a western come to the big screen…it had a feel of a classic John Wayne movie. Sheriff Marcus Hamilton (Jeff Bridges) is coming to make an arrest in going after a divorced dad Toby Howard (Chris Pine) and his ex-con brother Tanner Howard (Ben Foster) who resort to a desperate scheme in order to save their family’s farm in West Texas.
Chris Pine and Ben Foster as the bank-robbing brothers share great chemistry and draw sympathy from the audience with compelling performances. Jeff Bridges stands out however as the hardened cop tasked to track down the brothers.
