Have you seen The Highwaymen yet? Have you ever heard of Bonnie and Clyde? Do you really know anything about Bonnie and Clyde? The Highwaymen is a movie that will make you learn more about the famous gangsters, and make you want to read more about what actually happened to them after watching the movie.
The Highwaymen is a big Netflix original production starring Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson. There are more celebrities in the movie, but these are the main characters, and they are playing the roles as two Texas Rangers going out there to get hold of Bonnie and Clyde. It isn’t easy, and the police has been unsuccessful. The only thing they are able to do is to find the dead bodies left behind by Bonnie and Clyde. In a desperate moment, they ask Woody Harrelson and Kevin Costner to join in on the manhunt for Bonnie and Clyde, and with their special skills and brilliant minds (even though they are a bit old and out of shape), they are joining in.
What makes The Highwaymen a great movie?
I have got to say it, Woody Harrelson is a brilliant actor, and I like him almost everywhere I can see him in movies. And the way he partners up with Kevin Costner in this movie is simply great. They are fantastic together, and they manage to take us back in time and give us the feeling that we are actually audience to everything taking place back in the days when Bonnie and Clyde where out there. Their clothes, the mimics on their faces, and everything – it totally sucked me into the movie.
I had no background knowledge about Bonnie and Clyde before watching the movie, and that is why I sat with one question in my mind all the time while watching – is this based on reality or is this just an imagined story? Well, I got my answers in the end of the movie when they showed real life images of what happened to the characters, and it kind of answered my questions before I even had the chance to look it up in Wikipedia or elsewhere.
The best since Birdbox
The Highwaymen was the best Netflix original movie I have seen since the release of Birdbox. But, I have just read some people saying that The Silence is another great new Netflix original movie, much similar to Birdbox. They have gotten my attention, so hopefully, I will get to watch the movie sometime soon. If I do, I will write my thoughts here to share what I think about The Silence.
But until then, go ahead and watch The Highwaymen on Netflix first – it is a brilliant movie.
