Touted as Robert Redford’s final acting role, the film is based on the true story of Forrest Tucker, who with 16 jailbreaks behind him goes on a spree of bank robberies at age 70. Wrapped up in the pursuit are detective John Hunt, who becomes captivated with Forrest’s commitment to his craft, and a woman, who loves him, in spite of his chosen profession.
Equally crucial to the film’s craggy appeal is the easy comradeship between Forrest and his “over the hill” gang – Danny Glover and Tom Waits (a particular delight). It would require a true curmudgeon to not derive pleasure from this twinkling performance from Redford, radiating smoothness, wisdom and charm to the very end.
