STARS NOT AS BRIGHT
on 18 January 2017
This 110 min REGION B/2 DVD was an ok film as far as I was concerned without hitting any heights. With such a host of top notch actors I thought the film would have been more appealing, although it was tense at times with plenty of action, violence and some nudity.
Set in the 1920s prohibition era America, Lawless is the true story of the Bondurant brothers. Brazen and fearless, these young rural bootleggers became legendary criminals. The youngest brother, Jack (LaBeouf) is ambitious and impulsive, the middle brother Howard is loyal but reckless and eldest brother, Forrest (Hardy), leads the family with a silent determination. As the Bondurant illicit business and legend grows, so too looms the danger of bigger fish, and its not long before the brothers must face the consequences.
