Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Old Man & the Gun tells a fascinating story… just not in a fascinating way. It’s not like the cast don’t deliver – they do and are by far the best thing about the film. But the direction and pace are so slow that even for a lean ninety minute run time the film feels slow. Redford is fun and for sure enjoying the (mostly) true life story of Forrest Tucker but there needed to be much more to this to make it essential.
Best Bit: Redford
