    It understands that its first job is to make us believe in Bonnie and Clyde and commit to their story. And that it does, perhaps not brilliantly, but well.

    This elongated version makes its own mark, although certainly not an indelible one.

    This Bonnie & Clyde, taken on its own terms, is a perfectly entertaining gangster picture, not to mention an interesting experiment in its simultaneous propagation and subversion of feminist doctrine.

    Both Hirsch and Grainger do a creditable job of getting into the skin of their complicated characters.... The supporting cast is filled with familiar faces doing competent work with a short amount of screen time and a sometimes programmatic script.

    Bonnie & Clyde really is just another biopic with superior production values, a few good performances and a pair of protagonists who deserve no sympathy, and receive none here.

    It's mildly entertaining, but Outlaw TV it ain't.

    There are some artsy shots underscoring Clyde’s premonitions and Bonnie’s obsession with a music-box ballerina, but they’re throwaways at best and lend absolutely nothing to the saga.... The performances here are fine.

    Bonnie’s panic attacks and Clyde’s crystal-ball premonitions add hokeyness to an otherwise decent drama, whose biggest crime is being stretched over two nights instead of one.

    Dont understand all the negative reviews this miniseries was interesting, smart, and fun to watch. The story about Bonnie and Clyde was toldDont 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 »
