    This is a lovely little film. I loved it. Great cast & storyline. Moves along at a perfect pace. Robert Redford is still one of the best! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž
  • They forgot the story...but it does not matter.

    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. Updating my earlier (rather negative) review. The image of Mr. Redford on a horse in an Indian blanket has stayed with me. I did rewatch some of his earllier films, but even though I still feel like the cast could have had a little more story, the tone of this is just right I think - for me. Who could be this seedy and charming all at once? A gentility will have passed when he has gone and this reminded me of that.

    A beautiful story, written very well and directed imaginative. Brilliant motion picture.

    I enjoyed the movied a lot. Its good for me if I feel I got my money's worth for the time I gave to it. It gave me plenty of satisfaction. I hear that Mr. Redford has decided to retire from acting after this one. Just want to say, 'Thanks Robert Redford'.... I've never been in your life, but you've been in mine since the 60's...

    Fist robbery with Butch Cassidy and the juxtaposition was w0nderfully done. A nice film- what twists we see when we get old.

    This is an enjoyable film with well executed acting and a creative storyline. We felt it was worth the rental. The poor reviews below may have been from viewers with expectations of an action flick or the pace & sequencing of a modern superhero movie (understandable with their current popularity); however, if you enjoyed movies like Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid, Unforgiven (Eastwood), and Gran Torino (Eastwood) with slow developing stories then you may enjoy this one. If this is indeed Robert Redford's swan song then we wish him all the best. Nicely done and thanks for the years of entertainment. Break a leg.

    Not quite sure why this movie has such high reviews. It is mediocre, at best. It seems like a lot of this is the nostaglia factor, or because Robert Redford is in it? I really like Redford and Sissy Spacek, and Butch Cassidy is one of my favorite movies, but this film is simply not very good. The entire film is Redford being snarky and clever, it gets old after ten minutes. If there was not a high-profile cast to carry this movie, it would be completely ignored.
  • Not worth $5.99

    Maybe .99cent rental I'd recommend, just for pure mindless nothing else to rent kind of night. Very slow and really not well acted movie. The preview is all you need to see.
  • Negative Reviews Are Misleading

    All of the negative reviews I am seeing sound like they came from ignorant individuals who didnโ€™t read up on the movie beforehand and had no clue what to expect so they just expected it to be as action packed as a movie like Mission Impossible. To clarify, this is a delightful, low key film that severs as a beautiful swan song to a legendary actor. It was not meant to be action pack nor made for people who only waste their time watching blockbusters. This film is made for individuals who enjoy independent films and are able to enjoy the beauty and subtleness of a film.
