One Last Time
21 October 2018 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

If this truly is the last Robert Redford performance, boy did he go out on top. Forrest Tucker is just the perfect quiet bada** for Redford to go out with. As loved as he is, he's never quite been the star that I think he deserved to be, but quietly going about his business for the last 50 years. Tucker gives Redford a likable but yet complex character to dive into. Do you root for someone who has been robbing dozens of banks for years and in/out of prison? But because its Redford and his performance, it's difficult to not. To complement that, Casey Affleck is a uniquely fitted foil to Redford's criminal desires. An always entertaining and tension filled crime-thriller, but one for all audiences, The Old Man & the Gun delivers a poignant end to Redford's acting career.

8.8/10
