Former bank robber Cain Vincent Dyer praised Taylor Sheridan's Hell or High Water for its realistic portrayal of bank robberies. Dyer commended the film for its attention to details, such as the characters driving with their windows down to blend in with other drivers. He also noted the robbers' preference for loose cash instead of bundles, as bundles may contain dye packs or tracers. Dyer gave the film a rating of 8 out of 10 for its realism. Hell or High Water, along with Sheridan's other works, has solidified his success as a writer and creator in the Western genre.
