No character development or anything beyond "the chase"

I think people might just be nostalgic for movies like this, but there is not much redeeming or interesting about this search for Bonnie & Clyde. No character development of the Highwaymen, just references to their past - but no real depth. Is it a chase? is that it? what about the politics that are just shadowed - the power of the Texas Rangers to kill with immunity? So so disappointing and a waste of my time. :(
