Roger EbertFull Review Very Good ...make no mistake, you'll think about this film. It'll be a line of dialogue, or an image of Redford's charm or Spacek's laugh or Affleck's attitude—it's just one of those movies that keeps sneaking up on you in memory. Like Forrest himself, it refuses to go away. And like Redford himself, it's unforgettable.
NY PostFull Review Good Don't come to "The Old Man and the Gun” looking for a tense caper. It's probably the most relaxing movie you'll ever watch about a serious criminal. ..."Old Man” isn't hilarious or sleek. It's mellow, like a campfire tale, or your grandpa's stories set to whiskey. Redford's voice never becomes louder than your average therapist's.
Slant MagazineFull Review Average Chemistry counts for something, and actors Robert Redford and Sissy Spacek have it in spades in the trifling-at-best, galling-at-worst dramedy... a self-aware victory lap for the Sundance Kid as he goes gentle into that good night. ...
