A great movie. Not a realistic portrayal of the true Bonnie and Clyde. A lot of actual portrays of them but Hollywood dramatized. Story line of their life of crime but not their real characterization. It's a good movie to watch with great stars.

BONNIE AND CLYDE
A 1960's film told by writer Robert Benton, Producer Warren Beatty who also played Clyde Barrow in the film
and Director Arthur Penn who is Actor Sean Penn's father, incase you didn't know
Filmed in 1966 but set during the 1930's
based on the Gangster couple Bonnie parker & Clyde barrow who were bank robbers during the 1930's
a Great film version of Bonnie and Clyde i think, brilliantly written by Robert benton & Brilliant Directed
also very well acted, Great performances by Faye Dunaway who played Bonnie parker
Warren beatty who played Clyde barrow
and Gene Hackman who played Clyde barrow's brother Buck,
one of Gene Hackman's first films aswell Great performance
the film was released in cinemas 1967 and caused alot of controversary with the amount of Violence in the film
mainly the scenes where Bonnie, Clyde and Buck and trying to fight off the cops
with lots and lots of Gun fire, very well Directed in my opinion
the last scene in the film which actually happened to the real Bonnie & clyde
is the Highlight of the film where they think they have got free from the Law and they Drive off
but they were actually ambushed/taken by surprise by the Cops/FBI and brutally assassinated by machine Guns
you see all the blood spurting out from the Squibs in the close up shots
pretty Violent scene back in the 60's, looking at the scene now 50 somethin' years later
it still has an impact i think
the whole Violent scenes from the film still has an impact today
but probably not as hard hitted as it was back in the 60's

in my opinion one of the best films made from the 60's
Great writing, Great Directing and really Great performances the film still holds up today for sure.

the Blu-ray release is the version to get of this classic film, better than the 2 Disc DVD set
a all new HD blu-ray transfer has been given and a new master audio track has been given aswell
the picture quality looks amazingly clear not much Grain, better than the old dvd release that's fur sure
warner bros have made an effort for this film

the special features,
the blu-ray has the exact same special features carried over from the 2 Disc special edition dvd years and years ago
the 60mins making of Documentary REVOLUTION is a fantastic Doco
most of the cast and crew from the film have been interviewed
Arthur Penn, Robert benton,
Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, Gene Hackman, Michael J Pollard, Estelle parsons
and some members from the crew aswell
lots of behind the scenes photos during the making of the film
the History channel Doco Love and Death- the story of Bonnie & clyde goes for about 45mins
is on this blu-ray
the Deleted scenes/Additional scenes from the film are included on the blu-ray aswell
the original cut of the film ran for about 130mins, the Executive at warner bros thought the film was way to long
so it was cut down to 111mins before it was released to Theatres
i watched the Deleted scenes after watching the film
i felt that some of the Deleted scenes made the plot/story line more Deatiled
and could've been left in the film to make it run for about 120mins at least.
and as usual the Theatrical trailer is here aswell

if you have the 2 Disc DVD set anyway well keep it then up to you.
but this blu-ray version has much better picture quality than the dvd version
plus all the special features are on 1 blu-ray Disc
i gave this blu-ray 5 stars

I saw this classic film many years ago when I was stationed in Germany courtesy of the U.S. Air Force and I remember being in Paris when I saw the lines for this "event" film. When I finally saw it in a theater on base, I was awe-struck by the vituosity of Arthur Penn's direction and the performances of Beatty and Dunaway. Now finally after 40 yrs this film has not lost its impact since we are now in disasterous recession. It's lost none of its luster and on Blu-ray--it seems like it was made just yesterday. BTW, do check out the special features which includes interviews with Gene Hackman, Estelle Parsons, Michael J Pollard, Arthur Penn, David Benton and of course Beatty and Dunaway--this will definitely add to the enjoyment of this masterpiece of a film. At the moment if you're unable to get this in Blu-ray, the HD DVD disc is even cheaper at $9.99 and looks the same.

I remember going to the theatre as an impressionable teenager in 1967 and sitting through this movie 5 times! I think it's probably hard for younger viewers to understand why "Bonnie & Clyde" made such an impact--there were BIG debates among critics at the time. There's even a case where one of the weekly magazine critics panned it one week and changed his mind and praised it the next. Part of the furor was over how it portrayed violence and violent characters and how it mixed comedy and drama. Early in the film in one of their comically botched hold-ups, Clyde shoots a man point-blank in the face through a car window. That was incredibly shocking at the time! Nothing had been seen like that before; and it was being done by a character we'd been set-up to like. From this point in time, the movie looks pretty tame--even naive. The locations and scenic design are still outstanding--which makes the widescreen DVD all the more appreciated--although Bonnie (especially her hair) looks more a product of the 60s than the 30s. And the finely-edited "dance of death" at the end remains strangely beautiful and horrifying at the same time. (PS: And keep in mind, this is a fictionalized account; it wasn't meant to be a documentary.)

i saw this movie when i was a youngster and it was a classic as much then as it is today. although it is not true to the actual bonnie and clyde, it is excellent storytelling and acting. casting faye dunaway as bonnie was superb, as well as gene hackman and estelle parsons. the real bonnie and clyde were more cruel and murderous, but because of their great romance people still loved them anyway. clyde was just a fella that could never catch a break, so he turned "bad." it is great entertainment.

Could not think of any ensemble cast of today's actors that could play the roles like that group did. I mean who is going to play Clyde Barrow like Warren Beatty? Ryan Gossling? I think not

I saw this film when it first came out. Back then I knew nothing of Bonnie and Clyde. Now I have read several books on them and wanted to see the film again. It is wonderful! Granted there is "artistic license" taken on many of the details of the film (it isn't a documentary or true to life...Beaty as director wisely took license to make the film entertaining and that is important!).
Additionally the 2nd disc, adds a lot of interest to me on how the film was made, decisions that were made, etc.
As for how the film differs from the reality of Bonnie and Clyde (if you wish to call these errors...they are really just artistic license)....Clyde almost always drove Ford V-8s..the film shows him in other engine Fords as well as other types of autos. The film shows them using the Thompson 45 caliber submachine guns..in reality Clyde burglarized national guard armories and stole many Browning Automatic Rifles (BARs), which was his weapon of choice. Clyde always drove in his sock feet, the movie shows him removing his shoes to drive in sock feet only in the final scene of the ambush. Clyde drove always, never letting the other gang members drive...and he drove at breakneck speeds, up to 80 MPH, the movie shows driving much slower. Bonnie and Clyde were both very very short, compared to the tall actors who portrayed them in the film. The character W.D. Moss is (as planned and explained) a composite character..which does simplify the plot. In fact the Clyde Barrow gang robbed very few banks, mostly robbing mom and pop grocery stores...compared to the film in which they mostly rob banks (again to increase the entertainment value).
And of course, the sexual aspect...in the film Clyde is portrayed as a impotent lover...when in fact he was as active sexually with Bonnie as any normal man. I think the sexual aspect was tied in with the true facts of Clyde being brutally raped for a year in the Texas prison farm, and the impact that must have had on him.
The murder of the 2 Texas motorcycle police at Grapevine, Texas, was wrong in detail as there were really 3 officers, one of who kept driving (he was in front) and the last two officers confronted the Barrows, and were murdered (the film shows only 2 officers).
Additionally Frank Hamer was never captured by the Barrows, although several other peace officers were...so the portrayal of Hamer being captured was a cinematic device to combine the actual capture of several other officers, with the story of Hamer.
Still the movie combines truth with enough fiction to make the movie a really enjoyable and entertaining film...filmed in the general locations the Barrows haunted in the early 1930s...in and around Dallas, Texas.
