The Old Man & the Gun is based on the mostly true story of Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford), from his daring prison escape at age 70 to a string of heists that confounded authorities and enchanted the public. Wrapped up in the pursuit are detective John Hunt (Casey Affleck), who is captivated by Forrest’s commitment to his craft, and the woman (Sissy Spacek) who loves him despite his criminal ways.

Why is it that the critics on rotten tomatoes can get it so wrong? This movie about a “polite” bank robber is so bad that the hacks thought it must be profound. Oh my God save your money and do anything else. Or watch the movie, open up a window and try to get the stink out of the room.
Well acted. Was a little bit on the short side
Uniformley fine actors (Redford, Spacek, Carradine, Moss, Glover, Waits, Affleck!) but seems like the director got lost in homages and the idea of Redford's last movie rather than making this a movie. Spacek character way too enamored way too soon over way too little. This is like 'someone's memory of' a movie.... Going to rewatch The Chase or Butch and Sundance I think.
Hllywd's 1:33 'blockbuster'. Give it 8 min for intro & credits. The 25+min with Spacek is worthless. Disappointed. Is Redford into making films like DeNiro now?
Slow - love the actors but the movie is very slow - we wanted to give up a few times. Definately not worth the money iTunes charges
What a boring, pointless movie.
I know Redford is an old guy,but someone should get punched In the face for this ....just saying...
Great story, movie and acting. Some of Robert's best work.
Love the actors but the pace of the movies was too slow and very little chemistry between the actors. If you are stuck on a trans pacific flight and need help with insomnia, this is your movie
I love this movie! I love the moment woman opens the door and Forrest just comes and kisses her! This movie makes me feel peaceful! Comfortable!Cozy!Excited! It also makes me feel younger! Lol
