A pleasantly laidback genial movie abut an aging bank robber (Redford) and his efforts to remain one step ahead of the law. Based off the true story about Forrest Tucker, Robert Redford fits the part like a glove. Sissy Spacek is endearing as his love interest and Casey Affleck is quietly intense as the determined police officer aiming to catch him. It's a small modest story that's tastefully told and the cast is quite charming. Given the fact that this is Robert Redford's last movie before retiring, it feels like a swansong for him.

Its a dull, slow paced movie. An old thief robbes here and there, falls for an old lady and has ,,Robin Hood,, aura, but a hero without real adventure and motivation. He just does it, but we re not in any way obliged to agree, not even to watch this dull pelicula. Another great actor ,,bites the dust,, in a regretable movie. Shame!

Well, what do you do then?
Well, that’s a secret.
With “The Old Man & the Gun“, we probably say goodbye to a real film legend. According to some sources, Robert Redford wants to draw a line under his rich film career in a stylish way.

This 83-year-old actor conquered all the women’s hearts effortlessly when he was younger. And to be honest, he’s still got it. So don’t expect a gangster story full of violent bank robberies and wild chases. It’s reasonably friendly and cozy. You won’t see Forrest Tucker in the Top 10 of most notorious bank robbers of all time. It was probably not all that spectacular enough for that. So, no “Butch Cassidy and …

“And he did.”
The last movie I saw at LIFF (Leeds International Film) and the final performance from Robert Redford (apparently) - and what a way to end this year festival.
‘The Old Man and The Gun’ is one of most endearing and heartfelt movies about bank robbery. A simple story with miraculous results. By the end, I don't know to root for or against the robbers. Throughout the movie I kept being reminded of a similar heist movie that came out this year called ‘Kings of Thieves’, but done better.
David Lowery stylistic directing shines through out. From ‘Pete's Dragon’, ‘A Ghost Story’ and now this movie; Lowery is a special soul. He’s got a unique way of presenting information across, almost like a Edgar Wright type of style by cutting away the fat of pacing. For example: …
