  • The Newton boys were the most successful bank robbers in American history, up until the savings and loan bandits of the 1980s. Operating in the Roaring '20s, they hit as many as 200 banks and then pulled off the nation's biggest train robbery, a mail train heist in northern Illinois.

  • "The Newton Boys" helms a very lengthy script, not that it is too long, but the slow pace makes the film feel much longer than it's two hour run time.

  • Scored to a disarmingly quaint array of fiddle-and-banjo tunes, The Newton Boys has so little in the way of blood or rancor that before long, you begin to notice that there's no real drama in it, either. Read full review

  • The greatest appeal of THE NEWTON BOYS is the collective charm of its four handsome young leads, wearing pretty costumes and having a good ol' time with Texas accents, shotguns, and cowboy hats. Otherwise the movie often feels as if it's meandering from one fact-based event to another, without much regard for how it ought...

  • Considering The Newton Boys are my relatives I think this book is extraordinary! The detail is play by play as it happened. There is no middle ground. Willis Newton was a scoundrel no doubt but I love him anyway. It can be difficult to read because it is written in the way they use to speak back in the 1900 country. Enjoy! Nancy Newton

  • The Newton's work under a simple code of conduct, which states they won't kill, they won't harm or rob any women or children, and they won't snitch. Immediately, what The Newton Boys lacks is the element of perspective.

  • I was raised in a small town that the Newton Boys robbed and heard about it over the course of my life. I saw the movie when it debuted and loved it then. I ordered it because I wanted to see it again.

  • The Newton Boys Reviews. There's little nuance in the straightforward, chronological way the tale is told--it's hard to point to a scene that's worth discussing after you've left the theatre. Linklater's genuine regard for his characters and fidelity to his setting are his strongest directorial traits.
