We have been cooped up because of an excess of snow here. I love heist movies, I was going to buy this one from the $4.99 bin at Walmart, but looked it up and turned out it’s on Netflix, at least for now.
HELL OR HIGH WATER- It’s a tale of two brothers robbing banks to save the ranch, I thought the acting was good, and it kept us on the edge of our seats. I give it 8.5 out of 10, had to knock it down a little because of a few times I had to suspend disbelief. Like facing down the cops with no cover here, the machine gun keeps them at bay, but he had to pause to change ammo magazines in the middle of it. There were a few other scenes that didn’t seem too realistic but it didn’t ruin the movie.
There’s just something about a bank heist. I remember back in the 90’s I stopped at my parent’s house, they were glued to the TV because it had a live feed of a bank robbery standoff in California.
Then again another time the TV was streaming a NASA control room, I forget why. They were like “Watch that guy with the pocket protector, he keeps getting up and whispering to that other guy. What is he saying?”
My parents were easily amused.
