Hal, wayward prince and heir to the English throne, is crowned King Henry V after his tyrannical father dies. Now the young king must navigate palace politics, the war his father left behind, and the emotional strings of his past life.
The outlaws made headlines. The lawmen made history. From director John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side), THE HIGHWAYMEN follows the untold story of the legendary detectives who brought down Bonnie and Clyde. When the full force of the FBI and the latest forensic technology aren't enough to capture the nation's most notorious criminals, two former Texas Rangers (Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson) must rely on their gut instincts and old school skills to get the job done.Written by

During When Frank Hamer's talk with the gas station attendant, the attendant says that Bonnie and Clyde "only rob banks" . While it is true they did rob banks, they actually robbed more stores and gas stations by far.
The station attendant's statement-while factually incorrect-was most likely meant to reflect popular misconceptions that began while Bonnie and Clyde were alive and have persisted to the present day. Due to their less spectacular nature (and generally lower body counts), the Barrow Gang's numerous robberies of gas stations, grocery stores, and assorted small businesses were under-reported at the time, with some not being attributed to the gang until months or even years after they occurred.

This is the True story of 2 Texas Rangers who both came out of retirement to hunt down the notorious Bonnie and Clyde. Frank Hamer (Costner) and Maney Gault (Harrelson) team up and hit the road after being hired by Texas Governor Ma Ferguson(Bates) and the Prison Warden(J K Lynch) from where Barrow escaped.
Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were as famous as Movie Stars back in the 1930's and this is effectively portrayed especially at the end. Costner and Harrelson pairing works well and though maybe a bit long the Movie does its Job and so did the Bullets!
