The world's top assassin, Duncan Vizla, is settling into retirement when his former employer marks him as a liability to the firm. Against his will, he finds himself back in the game going head to head with an army of younger killers.
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
The strive for authenticity was so great that John Lee Hancock, the director of the movie, filmed Bonnie and Clyde's death scene at the actual spot where they were shot near Bienville Parish, Louisiana. See more »
The thug at the bar threatens Maney Gault with an Italian stiletto style switchblade, a knife style that did not appear in the United States until American servicemen stationed in Italy brought them home after WWII. Inexpensive switchblades were widely available in the United States in the 1930s, as modern legal restrictions on these knives were yet to be enacted, but most looked quite different from the one in the film.

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!
