I liked this movie, kept my attention all the way through. Not one that will get a golden globe but worth the time to watch it.

this film reminds me of joel & ethan coen's "no country for old man", & quentin tarantino's "pulp fiction" & "django unchained"!

Really intense movie.
The point of view of those whose lives were affected by Prohibition and its consequences.
Regular folks trying to make it by during hard times too.

A good movie about prohibition and its uselessness.

I enjoyed this movie. I especially like movies based on a true story. What I liked is that the brothers stuck up for each other and didn't let the newcomers take over their business of bootlegging. It's interesting to find out about your ancestors to learn about what interesting things they did in the past and to be proud of them ~ great movie, great actors ~ I enjoyed it :)

Just great! Backwoods justice; visceral. The bad guys may remind you of Matewan; the good guys may remind you of the bad guys.

Hillbillies! Moonshine! Prohibition! Hey, what could go wrong here? Maybe some power plays between the law and the lawless? Without trying to sound sexist I think this movie is more a man's movie than a woman's. I liked the music (Emmylou Harris), and I liked the casting. I gave the movie an extra star for Shia Labeouf who has become a consummate actor. I would say Labeouf carried the major part of this movie. I recommend it.

Don't waste your time. Slow, weird, and boring. I shut it off after about 30 mins.

Forrest Bondurant (to his brother Jack, who's been beaten to a pulp by Deputy Rakes): "...It is not the violence that sets men apart, alright... it is the distance that he is prepared to go."
