Hell or High Water was a surprising announcement for a Best Picture Academy Award nomination. I was excited to have to watch this film, and it didn't disappoint. It's an exciting film about two brothers who become bank robbers in an attempt to save their family's land. Jeff Bridges is the tough-as-nails cop who is determined to get them. It's a lot of fun, a lot of excitement, and definitely not the type of movie you expect to be recognized by the Academy. This is a must for any fan of the action genre.
Original theatrical aspect ratio: 2.35:1 (Digital)
Rated R for some strong violence, language throughout and brief sexuality.
