The Highwaymen

The Highwaymen

2019, R, 132 min. Directed by John Lee Hancock. Starring Woody Harrelson, Kevin Costner, Kathy Bates, Kim Dickens, John Carroll Lynch.

Not reviewed at press time. The pursuit of Bonnie and Clyde is seen from the other side of the chase in this Netflix original, with Harrelson and Costner as two Texas Rangers, pulled out of retirement and set on the trail of the notorious killers. Director John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side, The Alamo) paints a picture of old men facing their own mortality, and the galling truth that their greatest skill is in killing.
