Lawless (2012) - Crime | Drama

Lawless (2012) - BAD MOVIE

  The film is supposed to be based on a true story. I am sure that there is a grain of truth in that. Yet, it doesn't come out in the finished product. Good old boys just out to make a living are by far too good to be true. The big smoke villains are government officials, which had gone rotten past the core, are more than a tad too villainous. And the ending goes beyond the call of duty to show that the problem was (an by implication still is) with the big government. If only, the good old country folk were left to themselves to sort their problems.
The film is also badly paced, the script is jerky and the anticlimactic finale is the final letdown. Skip it!
