Trivia

The film's screenwriter John Fusco had the rare privilege of spending time with the late real-life Texas Ranger Frank Hamer's son (Frank Jr) as a means of structuring the story as historically accurate as possible. See more »

Goofs

Among the weapons circled in pencil, presumably having been chosen by Hamer, in his firearms catalog while he is purchasing weapons for the pursuit is a pump-action shotgun labeled a "Remington 12 gauge, pump action." Then, while shifting his thumb to point at it as if to remind himself about it Hamer asks for "that Remington Model 11..." However, a Remington Model 11 is a semi-automatic shotgun and visually quite different from the catalog illustration. See more »

Quotes

Maney Gault: How many bullets you got in you?
Frank Hamer: Sixteen, I think.
Maney Gault: It might be good to have a doctor look at you sometime.
Frank Hamer: It might be good to have a doctor look at you sometime.
Maney Gault: I ain't got no bullets in me.
Frank Hamer: Because I was covering you.

The other side of the isle
29 March 2019 | by sudip-chatterjeeSee all my reviews

This story is told from the other perspective that we are used to see. Two aged, recommissioned(or, actually half-recommissioned) Texas Rangers take on Bonny and Clyde and hunt them in the end using same tactics that B&C used to kill lawmen. The tempo is slow at the beginning and builds up gradually until the climax. The sedate style of storytelling is intentional to give it a more realistic feel. The director Mr. Hancock achieves that masterfully! Set-design is excellent! Camerawork follows the happenings from the perspective of Pancho and Manny, and you get a clear idea of what they are facing while dealing with such criminals. There are some intense moments that will keep you on the edges of your seats! Finally, the acting. Superb! A plus straightaway! The screen chemistry of Costner and Harrelson works like magic, and their banter wont let you feel that you are actually watching a hunting party involving some deep criminals. The last scene is simply impeccable! I'd say its a solid eight-outta-ten!
