Excerpt: Hell or High Water utilizes similar themes of determined, smart vengeance and bittersweet resolutions [as Sicario], it’s carefully-drawn characters caught in the complexities of their lives with little to combat a trajectory seemingly destined from birth. They’ll try their hardest to overcome their presumed fates, but they’ll be ready should it meet them along the way.
Excerpt: Methodically paced, Hell or High Water envelops audiences in the desperation of its setting, and the attitude of its people, who have authentic grit thanks to the casting of supporting players with character to their faces, and curves (some sensual, some sagged) to their bodies.
Excerpt: With Hell or High Water, Mackenzie and Sheridan have created a stunning tale of morality that both glorifies and critiques the outlaw myth, exploring all aspects of modern America in an easily digestible tale of good vs. evil.
