Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford) has been on the wrong side of the law since he was a teen. He grew into a career bank robber who broke out of prison 18 times, including a daring escape from San Quentin at age 70. The film covers his twilight years, and an unprecedented string of daring heists that confound authorities and enchants the public. Wrapped up in this chase are a detective (Casey Affleck) who becomes captivated with Forrest’s commitment to his craft, and a woman (Sissy Spacek) who loves him in spite of his chosen profession.

"The film is fizzy, lightweight fun with some real moments of genuine heart. Redford... has left movie lovers with one last gift that will put a smile to your face."
- Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
"The various marvels of the movie aren’t just the sparks between Redford and Spacek or Waits’ dry humor but often, Lowery’s inspired direction. "
- Gregory Ellwood, The Playlist
"The Old Man & the Gun eschews pastiche for a sweet, affable character study that resurrects Redford’s original star power with a wet kiss. The entire picture amounts to a low-key cinematic resurrection. "
- Eric Kohn, IndieWire
"We’re treated to a series of breezy heist/cat-and-mouse montages and a lowkey, conversational charm that are combined to hammer home the idea of how great a feeling it is to love what you do. "
- Josh Lewis, The Film Stage
"People don’t forget a performer like Redford, whose movie-star charisma idles low and sexy like a Harley Davidson motor even when he’s not doing anything, and that means a movie like David Lowery’s The Old Man & the Gun — a dapper, low-key riff on the bank-robber genre — can play things soft, counting on Redford’s charm to fuel the show. "
- Peter Debruge, Variety
"True, she is an anchor for him - a savior - but Spacek finds depth in the performance that doesn't seem to be in the script. It is in her eyes, twinkling with the wisdom of a lifetime on screen and off."
- Sasha Stone, TheWrap
"It's a light, warm story that's punctuated by the power of Redford's smile, one of the best special effects in movie history."
- Adam Graham, Detroit News
"If there's a reason to see the movie, it's Redford, whose charismatic, mature presence argues that age has done nothing to diminish his ability to command the screen."
- James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"[Redford] delivers a glorious, sly performance in a gloriously sly movie that masks its idiosyncrasy in brisk and breezy storytelling."
- Richard Brody, New Yorker
"A puckish film with a wistful quality, a gently comic end-of-the-line adventure about doing what you love, the passage of time and the things that might have been."
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"Warm and funny and mesmerizing in its understated perfection, The Old Man & the Gun is a splendid experience."
- Rex Reed, Observer
"Robert Redford robs banks and steals your heart. And whether David Lowery's exuberant gift of a film reps his final bow or not, Redford gives a virtuoso performance that feels like a valedictory. You want to salute him."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"A love letter to a cinematic legend, serving as a perfect final film for someone who long ago surpassed mere actor status to become an icon."
- Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
