Cowboys, Gangsters, Guns, Outlaws - It All Sounds So... Lawless!
Just imagine the brutality of the Wild West, throw in some Tommy guns, stir that up with some angry outlaws, throw in the Mafia, turn up the violence a teeny bit - and there you have Lawless.
Firstly, we'd like to point out that the book Lawless is based on (The Wettest County in the World) was taken from true stories by the author's family. This makes everything that happens in the film seem ten times as awesome!
With the hard man of Hammersmith, Tom Hardy, Transformers hero Shia LaBeouf and absolute legend Gary Oldman, it is impossible for this film to be anything less than epic.
As bootleggers turned legendary criminals, the Bondurant Brothers illicit local business grows and grows, attracting the unwanted attention from the bigger fish in the sea of the criminal underworld.
It’s not long before they come face-to-face with the big dogs - not just the gangster kind, but the long, violent and strong arm of the law kind, too.
If all of this isn’t enough, the luscious likes of Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain join the awesome cast as a little sweetener for us lady lovers.
Lawless was adapted for the big screen by music legend Nick Cave, who also wrote the soundtrack, adding to the list of A-list names and reasons for us to desperately need to see this as soon as we possibly can.
Lawless is released September 7 2012. So be a good fella, invite your god father whether they’re good bad or ugly and get your ass down to the cinema or you’ll be sleepin’ with the fishes!
