THE HIGHWAYMEN (SXSW (South by Southwest) Film Festival Austin Texas USA 2019)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

The Highwaymen
unexpectedly turns into a great watch with no slack in its performance. It perfectly captures the mood of the era in which the story occurs and keeps its audience interested throughout despite running on an old and worn storyline of Bonnie and Clyde. Watch for that unexpected small twist at the end of the movie that leaves a viewer satisfied and feeling fully entertained. It wins its Bravo! and Wow!
