HELL OR HIGH WATER – Rated R
Starring Chris Pine, Jeff Bridges and Ben Foster
When left in a desperate situation to save his family’s farm, one divorced father and his jail-bird brother turn to bank robbing as their only choice to make thing’s right in their world ~ This is HELL OR HIGH WATER!
Divorced, yet trying to provide for his ex-wife and sons the best way he knows how, Toby Howard (Chris Pine) hatches a plan with his brother, ex-con Tanner Howard (Ben Foster), to save his family farm, after the death of his poor sweet mama.
With the bank breathing down their necks, wanting to foreclose on their homestead, Toby and Tanner decide the best way to stop the bank, and save their families home, is to acquire enough cash ~ and fast ~ to make the bastards go away.
When a slew of bank robberies are reported to lawman Alberto Parker (Gil Birmingham) he decides that this might just be the perfect case for soon-to-retire fellow Texas Ranger Marcus Hamilton (Jeff Bridges) to take on as his last hurrah…
As Parker and Hamilton soon find ~ these aren’t your average bank-robbers ~ as they apparently have a liking for hitting just one kind of bank, and aren’t stealing exorbitant sums of money either…leaving our lawmen searching for more clues…as, none of this case is really making sense…
I give HELL OR HIGH WATER a rating of MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN ~ From the intense and powerful storyline from Taylor Sheridan (He also wrote last year’s SICARIO) to the gritty, commanding and epic performances hitting the screen from Pine, Foster and Bridges, HELL OR HIGH WATER is one incredibly raw and penetrating depiction of what lengths a man will go to, to save what his families worked all their lives for. This film is by far the best action-packed, cowboyesque film I have seen in years, so whether you have a love for lawmen, the picturesque states of Texas or New Mexico, or you just have a longing for Chris Pine’s baby blues or Jeff Bridges gravely voice, doesn’t matter, you just need to head on out to a theater near you this weekend to catch HELL OF HIGH WATER, as catching it on TV later, just will not to this film justice!!!
