    It’s an uninspired melding of Lifetime movie and biopic, with none of the virtues of a Lifetime movie (not campy enough) and none of the virtues of a biopic (it is egregiously fictionalized).

    This miniseries is terrible, as close to a complete waste of time as I've encountered in my two years of writing for this publication.

    Dont understand all the negative reviews this miniseries was interesting, smart, and fun to watch. The story about Bonnie and Clyde was told well, even the origins before they met and how their relationship evolved. i enoyed the 2nd part more than the first as it detailed their outlaw lifestyle and showed how they were going down a path which they couldn't return from. the show is very true to the time period of the 1930s and i loved the transition from the show from black to white in certain scenes. the acting and and actors were also very good, looking and sounding the part. the only negative points i have to make is that it starts off pretty slow and doesn't show many of the heists go down (they get explained via newspaper articles and quick flashes of gunfights). but overall i really enjoyed it as i love outlaw and mafia type shows. Bonnie and Clyde is a worthwhile, fun, entertaining drama that is like a string of dynamite.... it starts off slow but ends with a bang 9/10 Full Review »

    Tough story but they stay true to the history Bonnie and Clyde were terrible and brutal people with weird personal issues. This ain't Shakespeare but if your are interested in the 1930s gangsters and don't believe the Hollywood hype of the time we'll it's worth your time. Full Review »
