The Highwaymen (2019)
The story about Bonny and Clyde seen from the side of law enforcement, more specifically the two former Texas Rangers Frank Hamer and Maney Gault, played by Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson. The story is fascinating enough, but as with several other recent Netflix distributed films, the production values are uneven, with set decorations and a few supporting characters coming off as anachronistic. The Highwaymen is marred by a slow start and unimpressive narrative drive; writer John Fusco is fond of his storytelling cliches, and director John Lee Hancock hasn't got the inventiveness to refresh them. Luckily, Woody Harrelson comes in and saves the affair. And the film's final ten minutes are well made and makes the ending just as harrowing as you would expect. Thomas Newman contributes a fine musical score.
