Does anyone know what Harrison said after the final shooting scene? It sounded like Latin, maybe monus cerebrus but I can’t tell for sure.

I think you mean "manos arriba", Spanish for "hands up" as mentioned earlier.

That’s it. I don’t know why I thought it was Latin.

For as MEH as I thought Triple Frontier was I thought this was EXCELLENT. It’s no documentary but it’s a damn good flick with excellent actors, acting, set/costume design, dialog etc.

I very much enjoyed this and the period firearms were awesome.

I know they used BARs amount other high powered rifles to take down Bonnie and Clyde but is the Monitor significant or just a Hollywood choice.


There was a Colt Monitor used in the real life ambush shooting of Bonnie and Clyde, but there's some debate over whether it was Hamer or Gault who used it during the actual ambush. This Colt Monitor is on display in the Texas Ranger Museum.



The long guns used were reportedly:

Frank Hamer - Colt Monitor in .30-06, or Remington Model 8 with extended magazine in .35 Remington
Manny Gault - Remington Model 8 with extended magazine in .35 Remington, or Colt Monitor in .30-06
Bienville Parish Sheriff Henderson Jordan - Winchester 94 in .30-30
Bienville Parish Deputy Prentis Oakley - Remington Model 8 in .35 Remington, borrowed from Louisiana dentist Dr. Henry Sheheen
Dallas County Deputy Bob Alcorn - Remington Model 8, unknown caliber (probably .35 Remington too)
Dallas County Deputy Ted Hinton - BAR in .30-06, borrowed from the Texas National Guard

From what I've read, it looks like Hamer was armed with his .30 caliber Remington Model 8 semi-auto that had an extended (15 or 20 round) magazine.

In 1931, Colt introduced a BAR specifically geared for the law enforcement community. It was a commercial Browning Automatic Rifle with a pistol grip, shortened barrel and an elaborate compensator. The first two were shipped to Charlestown Prison (later to become Bunker Hill Community College) in Boston, MA on March 25, 1931. (Serial No’s C-102792, C-102793). The official factory designation was R-80 and commonly known as the “Monitor”.

The FBI purchased approximately 90 Monitors and put them on display in a series of propaganda films depicting Mr. Hoover overseeing some of his agents firing (with tracer) at cars. The Monitor did its job well and soon the cars were chopped to pieces by the armor piercing .30-06. This was Mr. Hoover’s weapon of mass destruction as it put his men on equal footing with the likes of Bonnie and Clyde. The Monitor was the first official “Fighting Rifle” of the FBI.

In the capture and shooting of Bonnie and Clyde, along with a multitude of weapons, BAR’s and one Monitor were used. The Barrow’s gang had two BAR’s, dozens of Colt 1911s, and a variety of other lethal weapons. Captain Frank Hamer of the Texas Rangers had the Monitor (serial number C-103168) that was allegedly presented to him by the Colt Company. The gang never had a chance to use their weapons because they were “cut down” before they could react.


So the Monitor was a modified commercial BAR. Very cool that they mentioned that—adds to the authenticity.

Last night for me as well, and, again, also enjoyed it. It's an interesting juxaposition against the Bonnie & Clyde movie starring Warren Beatty, to show the two different perspectives. I know of course that the Beatty movie showed a romanticized version of the two, but still, it's an interesting excercise in contrasting POV.

To get an idea of the danger B&C posed to cops, read up on their escape from the apartment in Joplin MO after the locals "surrounded" them.
And... the apartment is now AirBnB available. 84 bucks a night,
BAR not included.

Watched it this morning. I really enjoyed it and thought the acting was very good. I'll be watching it again soon to catch the subtle things that I'm sure I missed.

Some memorable lines/dialog/moments elevate an already good film.

In keeping with another thread here, anyone think the filmmakers could have had more fun shooting in black and white? It's already warm-toned, kinda sepia but Texas at that time in history, yeah, b&w could have stepped things up another notch.

One of many shootouts and escapes they made. I did some reading up on them and found out Buck Barrow died in the same hospital my mother was born in a couple months later.

The group of lawmen that killed B&C took grief from the "why didn't you give them a chance to surrender" idiots. In every other attempt to arrest them, the B&C gang used massive amount of firepower to shoot their way out.

I really liked it. A tad long, but good actors and a story that was long over due. Loved how little they showed B&C. Ending was wonderful on a number of levels.

It's a nickname for Francisco. Think Francisco "Pancho" Villa.

So any variation such as Frank or Francis is Pancho.

I've been wanting to watch this since it came out, but I've been busy at work. Finally got a night off and watched it after the kids and wife went to bed. Normally I'm not really impressed with Netflix produced movies (Wind River being a notable exception), but The Highwaymen was excellent. I had high hopes for this movie based on the previews, and I really felt like it met or even exceeded them. It's been a while since I've been able to say that about a movie. I'll definitely be watching this one again.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. So many decades later and people still complain about cops shooting assailants "too many times" or for not shooting the gun out of his/her hand. Roll Eyes

Just watched this last night, and I agree with the above. Their handling of B&C was outstanding, staying focused on the two main characters and only showing brief snippets of B&C, mostly from behind, far away, etc.

The only time we get a good, long look at the two bandits is the same time Frank Hamer and Maney Gault do. That's essentially when they became real. All of a sudden they were just "regular people." Obviously that was intentional as everything in the movie is from Frank's and Maney's perspectives, even some of the instances that turned out not to be accurate but were thought to be at the time the hunt was on. I enjoyed the movie.
