Product Description

The four Newton brothers have become America's most successful outlaws, holding up eighty banks from Texas to Canada. Their next robbery is planned for the Federal Reserve train, but this audacious stunt comes under threat when the Feds themselves start closing in on the notorious siblings.

From Amazon.co.uk

The Newton Boys were the most successful bank robbers in the history of the United States. They never killed anyone, never snitched and only robbed banks (just bigger thieves, in their opinion), until their final deal, which was a botched train robbery for $3 million. Engagingly played by Matthew McConaughey, Ethan Hawke, Skeet Ulrich and Vincent D'Onofrio, the Boys don't have the kind of flaws of more brutal criminals that make for more volatile dramas. The film ambles along in a leisurely way to tell its story of the Newtons' bank-robbing career, with an ever-present air of reverent Americana. This may make some viewers impatient and cause a glow in others. It seems like a departure for director Richard Linklater (Slacker and Dazed and Confused)--a costumer to be sure but Linklater's deliberately amiable pace perfectly balances the Boys' personalities. You may wander into this movie and feel right at home. The golden-hued cinematography of Peter James (Driving Miss Daisy) adds a level of comfort that makes everything warm-like. The end credits intercut archival footage of two of the real-life Newton boys toward the end of their lives, one from a 1980 appearance with Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show. --Jim Gay

For me this was a very slow, watching paint dry film. I have no doubt that it's factual and the times in which it happened were very well depicted. It simply made no sense in its laborious story telling process of a handful of thieves who robbed banks in the 1920's. I purchased it on the strength of the other reviews... I wish I hadn't.
