Set in 1920s prohibition era America, Lawless is the true story of the Bondurant brothers. Brazen and fearless, these young rural bootleggers became legendary criminals. The youngest brother, Jack (Shia LaBeouf), is ambitious and impulsive, the middle brother, Howard, is loyal but reckless and eldest brother, Forrest (Tom Hardy), leads the family with a silent determination. As the Bondurants' illicit business and legend grows, so too looms the danger of bigger fish, and it's not long before the brothers must face the consequences.

This is certainly one of the best films of 2012 and a great 2013 bluray release with plenty of extra bonus features telling the true story behind the film! This is one quality gangster flick from start to finish with a great story backed up by a powerful cast, Tom hardy, Guy Pearce, Shia Labeouf and Gary Oldman are all impressively at their best and it's electric to watch them together!! There is plenty of bloody violence to sink your teeth into, overall its brutal fun and very entertaining and a must see, the bluray version picture is great.

Biblical brutalities, slit throats and not forgetting castrations. It's all just another day's work in the bootlegging business for the Bondurant brothers. Criminal honour dominates the core of this fact based story that's also based on Matt Bondurants book (The weestest county in the world), Jack (Shia LaBouf), Forrest (Tom Hardy) and Howard (Jason Clarke) are the Viginia Hillbilies makeing a killing while the Monnshine's good. That's until the outside world comes intruding. The film in parts echo's Casino, Lawless plays as the sympathetic study of a self contained criminal world before law and big business muscle in. This is a familiar world but the outstanding bluegrass music score and the woodland views add vivid old world life. The lead actors are brilliant Tom Hardy's gruff machoism, Garry Oldman (under used) Gang Boss and Guy Pearce (outstandingly nasty) psycho cop all leave a massive impact. It's a small gripe to say that Shi LaBeouf's moral arc and un-needed love story diminish his potency of being a very good actor. The women roles (Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska) are also underwritten but also give strong performances with what little material they have been given. But this is a grip as the steady pace of the film simmers with built up aggression leading to a blood splattered climax . In all apart from my minor niggles Lawless is an excellent movie that sticks in the memory long after watching. It's a film you'll appreciate more with repeated viewing.

based on true events during the 20's-30's american prohibition.
1931' the 'bondurant' brothers 'forrest' 'howard' and youngest 'jack' run a successful 'bootlegging' operation, the brothers were getting rich, however their success had been noted by gangster 'floyd banner' who along with corrupt officals wanted a 'cut' of the profits.
when a corrupt district attorney brings in ruthless 'special deputy' -'charles rakes' to close down the stills operated by the county's 'hillbilly's in 'franklyn county' .......until ....only the 'bondurant's' operation remained.
'rakes' will learn that messing with the brothers will be a declaration of war.
superior 'gritty' drama that will allmost certainly hold your attention throughout....................highly recommended.
