O que se diz lá fora sobre LAWLESS, de John Hillcoat:
«LAWLESS is a well-made film about ignorant and violent people. Like the recent KILLER JOE, I can only admire this film's craftsmanship and acting, and regret its failure to rise above them.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«There are too many action-movie clichés without enough dramatic purpose, and interesting themes and anecdotes are scattered around without being fully explored. This is weak and cloudy moonshine: it doesn't burn or intoxicate.»
A.O. Scott, The New York Times.
«If LAWLESS doesn't achieve the mythic dimensions of the truly great outlaw and gangster movies, it is a highly entertaining tale set in a vivid milieu, told with style and populated by a terrific ensemble.»
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter.
«Hardy, speaking in low, flat, almost musically macho tones, has the bruiser charisma of a caveman Kevin Costner. It's not the money he's clinging to — it's the freedom.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
«LAWLESS offers a compelling, gruesome and instructive time-travel exercise.»
Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com.
