Storyline

A clash of clans that evoked great passion, vengeance, courage, sacrifice, crimes and accusations, which changed the families and the history of the region forever. The Hatfield-McCoy saga begins with 'Devil' Anse Hatfield and Randall McCoy. Close friends and comrades until near the end of the Civil War, they return to their neighboring homes - Hatfield in West Virginia, McCoy just across the Tug River border in Kentucky - to increasing tensions, misunderstandings and resentments that soon explode into all-out warfare between the families. As hostilities grow, friends, neighbors and outside forces join the fight, bringing the two states to the brink of another Civil War. Written by History Channel Publicity

Little Education and Much Clannishness
25 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This long stretching out of the infamous feud is not bad just nothing special. There is nothing here cinematically, literary, or artistically that hasn't been seen before. It breaks no new ground and is an interesting piece of history but doesn't have enough diversity or depth to allow for such length. Therefore, the story and its machinations becomes repetitive and if there isn't anything in the style or packaging to endear it flounders and fails.

The performances are professional, but nothing to get all riled up about. Revenge, hate, misunderstandings, ignorance, blood lust, and not the least, stubbornness are all here in abundance but it is nothing we would not expect from the backwoods at a time of little education and much clannishness.

One historical theory...one wonders if Hatfield would not have deserted during the war in front of Mccoy, who stuck out "the cause" to the end and ended up being mistreated in a POW camp...would he have been as bitter towards his friend? That seemed to be where the seed of hate was planted.
