Lawless is a solid outlaw adventure, but you can feel it straining for a greatness that stays out of reach. There's even a prologue and an epilogue, arty tropes signifying an attempt to make a Godfather-style epic out of these moonshine wars. Not happening. show more
Lawless is one of those films that, through seeming serendipity, has a cast that defines its moment. There have been others - "The Breakfast Club," "The Godfather" and "Silverado," to name one irrelevant and two relevant examples. But Lawless really lucked out. show more
A story of entrepreneurship, of family, of fighting for one's rights - the right to make white lightning, and money. It's as American as apple pie. show more
I felt like I had been transported back in time. I was in the year 1931.The film allowed me to feel the prohibition era through each of my sences. The only aspect that I felt was somewhat inferior was the final gun battle. In that scene. there appeared to be too much macho bravado and not enough common sence displayed.
Everything about this movie was well done. True to fact about the Proibition Era. A great storyline, with believable Actors. Recommened to all.
