Redford and Spacek are very charming and smooth talking but horrendously un-interesting. I would have loved to agree with the professional's rave reviews, but I don't have any reason to push this film as a "Classic". It just isn't. Bad script. Laboured and deeply boring. Avoid.

Really slow, unimaginative and laboured effort.Reviewed bypaulnbrowneVote: 2/10
This is one of the most boring movies I have ever been unfortunate enough to watch. I do not recommend watching this movie. Rather watch Stander. It is also about a bank robber, but the story is far more interesting and has some depth to it and unlike this, isn't the most boring story in the history of Hollywood.
'The Old Man & The Gun' is Robert Redford's final acting role. It's not quite a fitting finale - he's great as Forrest Tucker, the aging bank robber, but the overall film fall's a little flat. Based on a true story, most of his exciting adventures and prison breaks are glossed over, in favour of him finding late-life love with (Spacek). He can't curb his compulsion to rob banks however, and it assisted by Teddy (Glover) & Waller (Waits), but underutilised.
Detective Hunt (Affleck) is the Texas cop out to catch him - we also spend unnecessary amounts of time with his home-life. The chemistry between Redford and Spacek is good, and he's still as charming as ever. Affleck plays an exhausted cop as almost too dreary. Instead of seeing any heist planning or prison breaks (besides a montage), we instead get Redford and Spacek talking in a diner, walking, or making tea.
Thankfully, it's a quick 90min film, but the pacing and action could've been much better. Tehre's some chuckles, but nothing hilarious. You're better off re-watching 'The Sting'!
