First Glance: “The Highwaymen”


Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson as former Texas Rangers hot on the heels of the infamous Bonnie and Clyde? I’m all in! Netflix continues to put out interesting projects and this one is right up my alley.

Set in 1934 during America’s gangster era, Bonnie and Clyde had become celebrities – seen more as glamorized legends than cold-blooded killers. Costner and Harrelson are commissioned to stop the famed duo’s spree of robbery and murder.

I have to admit, I’m pretty giddy for this one and we won’t have to wait long. “The Highwaymen” debuts on Netflix March 29th. Watch the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or giving it a pass.

  1. Netflix and Amazon sure have opened up the television market for a good job– I love it. I sure feel that the Hollywood traditional route is a thing of the past. Great roles seem to be in television and as in original series.

    • It’s funny, I still haven’t locked in and watched a Netflix television series. Even though many are packed with a wealth of talent, I’ve only stuck with movies. Not sure if it’s a time investment or what. Regardless, you’re right. They have invested a ton in original series. It seems there is always a new one popping up.

  2. Hey Keith! I’m actually looking forward to this too. I always like films that show another side of a classic tale, and I definitely like this cast!

    • The cast excites me. I’m still a big Costner fan. It’s good to see him get a meaty run. I do wish he would take one more shot at directing.
