Tanner Howard is an ex-con with a wild streak. After ending his childhood abuse and several stints in jail, he has reconnected with his brother, Toby, to make things right. Toby Howard, recently divorced, has mounting child support payments and no work in sight. The two brothers learn that that their mother, recently deceased, was conned by the bank when she got a reverse mortgage on her land. The brothers come up with a plan to rob the banks that robbed her. Meanwhile Texas Rangers, Alberto and Marcus are pursuing them. Marcus is just weeks from an unwanted retirement and loves to tease is partner, Alberto. Alberto, annoyed by Marcus, looks forward to having a career as long as Marcus. Even though each man is strong, they are wise to the future in front of them and acknowledges it. With Toby and Tanner on a ticking clock, they must rob the banks, but only time will tell their true motive and if they will be caught by Alberto and Marcus.

This western, with a showdown, is a classic for modern times. Although it does reference the housing crisis, its not preachy. They cinematographers use the landscape and people to show the plight of the towns. The writers uses the wit everyday conversation to connect to the audience. Every characters back story is given and heartfelt and even the smaller roles are handled in a way to make all the actors shine. And the ending will leave you satisfied. It is a good movie to watch and contemplate on the terms ‘good guy’ and ‘bad guy’. This movie is the true definition of “must see”.

I give this 5 out of 5 stars

You want to talk about these bank robberies or just sit their and let the Alzheimer run its course – Alberto

I’d never take you as the go to guy for house cleaning – Toby

10 of me. I told you – Tanner

Well that looks like a guy that can foreclose on a house – Marcus
