From director John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side), THE HIGHWAYMEN follows the untold story of the legendary detectives who brought down Bonnie and Clyde.

Goofs

Thick stands of pine trees appear in numerous scenes set in Dallas and other north central Texas locations. Pines are rare in north central Texas because the predominant alkaline clay soils stifle their growth, but they are common throughout northern Louisiana, where the scenes were filmed. See more »

Good, but Slow.
29 March 2020 | by magicmuffinman12See all my reviews

Haven't seen alot of Netflix movies but this is the best Netflix movie I have seen.

The acting of Woody Harreloson and Kevin Costner was superb.

The pace of the movie is quite slow and there were times were the movie was kinda boring.

I love the bathroom scene and the scene when they are playing cards and gives us a backstory of Gault and Hamer.
