When a desperate father (Pine) learns the bank is going to take his family's land, he and his ex-con brother (Foster) are left with no choice.

Following a series of armed robberies at a number of branches of Texas Midland Bank where very little money was taken, we learn that the motive of unemployed oil and gas worker Toby Howard (Chris Pine) and his brother -- just released from prison -- is to raise enough money to pay off the reverse mortgage that will forfeit their recently deceased mother's ranch if not paid off. Oil was discovered on the ranch and in order to secure the future of his sons and ex wife, Toby needs $43,000. After two of the robberies, curmudgeonly Texas Ranger Marcus Hamilton (Jeff Bridges) and his American Indian deputy partner pick up the trail and just miss foiling the next, and last robbery.
A divorced dad and his ex-con brother resort to a desperate scheme in order to save their family's farm in West Texas.

Hell or High Water Movie Reviews

  • Terrific!

    Great acting. Beautiful cinematography. I appreciate the imagery and culture of the desolate landscapes and culture of of Texas. To the extent that the writing is authentic and true to the people it portrays, the "Southern" cinema is relevant to the understanding of the American political and cultural fabric.

    This film is truly wonderfully written and shot. Every scene has significance, right down to the soundtrack. It's more than a thriller or true crime. It's a classic Western in the greatest tradition of the genre. It manages to include the tropes and themes of Gothic Westerns in the present day. All three of the leads did a wonderful job. Magnificent!

    This movie is so good I'd watch it over and over. There are parts that kids shouldn't watch but other than that it's a good movie.

    Being Texas born and raised for 40+ years this is SPOT ON! Well directed and great cinematography that makes you feel like you are truly in W. Texas. Loved all the comments and hilarious dialogue from Jeff Bridges. WELL DONE!
  • Modern Americana at its best! A cinematic masterpiece!

    Great film and story line; a thinly veiled jab at the modern American economy of banking and corruption, twisted around love for family and the desire to break the chains of poverty. Definitely worth the rental money.
  • Top notch film of the year
