Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: If this proves to be his swan song, [Redford] couldn’t have picked a better one.
  • David Crow @ Den of Geek
    • Excerpt: A deliberate echo of Redford’s early iconic work, Old Man acts as a bookend to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, the George Roy Hill film that turned Redford into a movie star in 1969.
  • [New] | Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: The Old Man & The Gun isn’t flawless, but for the most part, it’s a warm, nostalgic film anchored by a wonderful performance from Robert Redford, who makes his self-professed “final performance” one that reminds us all why he’s one of the all-time great actors.
  • Chris Feil @ The Film Experience
  • Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
    • Excerpt: While there’s not much to the plot, I’m not sure you can exit the theater without a smile. It’s a slice of life with plenty more before and after what’s seen and yet we feel as though we know everything we need.
  • [New] | Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
    • Excerpt: Gunning for emotion.
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: This laidback crime caper could have gone down a number of different avenues to tell the story of a real-life career criminal, but when the camera accomplishes so much with slow push-ins on old man Redford’s very likable face, why make things more complicated?
  • Ron Wilkinson @ It’s Just Movies
    • Excerpt: Brimming with rascally good cheer, Redford churns out another feel-good flick mostly for the old folks.
