VanityFair.com: It’s finally time we made it official: Chris Pine, jewel-eyed Star Trek hunk and onetime romantic foil for Lindsay Lohan, is a fine actor. We saw that in last year’s Z for Zachariah, and we see it here again in the similarly Southern-tinged (or, in this case, Texan-tinged) crime drama Hell or High Water, in which Pine plays one half of a brother-brother bank-robbing duo with a flinty stare belying a manly goodness. His brother, the volatile, devil-may-care one required of these kinds of movies, is played with effective energy by Ben Foster, but it’s Pine, with his terse solidity, who really makes an impression. Well, Jeff Bridges does too, as a rascally (and kinda racist?) Texas ranger on the hunt for the brothers, who are trying to raise capital to save their family’s ranch. Starred Up director David Mackenzie helms with muscle and panache, in both bracing action scenes and quieter moments of introspection, all framed gorgeously by cinematographer Giles Nuttgens. Sicario writer Taylor Sheridan’s script is sometimes not quite as profound as it thinks it’s being, but it has a nice way with words, lacing a pulpy modern-day western with traces of loss and despair. Hell or High Water opens in the States in August, so if you’re looking for a summer flick that doesn’t involve the destruction of entire cities but still packs a punch, this is a good bet.
