The Old Man and the Gun Movie Review

The Old Man and the Gun
Director: David Lowery
Writer: David Lowery
Cast: Robert Redford, Casey Affleck, Danny Glover, Tika Sumpter, Tom Waits and Sissy Spacek
Distributor: Fox Searchlight Pictures
Rated PG-13 | Minutes: 93
Release Date: September 28, 2018

Effective storytelling is something that is hard to come by, but David Lowery‘s The Old Man and the Gun does it so well, making the characters in the film storytellers who tell a mostly true story about wild and romantic tales of charming bank robberies and fascinating jailbreaks. It is not only a love letter to Robert Redford‘s career, it is also a terrific capper for the legendary actor who will be leaving the acting game on a very high note.

The Old Man and the Gun brings out the very best in Redford by letting him be himself: a charismatic, charming, warm, gentleman who loves what he does and does what he loves. Surrounded by a terrific supporting cast that consists of Sissy Spacek, Casey Affleck, Tom Waits, Tika Sumpter, and Danny Glover, Lowery’s latest effort is a nostalgic reminder of what makes character-driven stories so captivating and why we go to the movies. Check out my full review below.

Old Man And The Gun trailer

We are accustomed to seeing very aggressive bank robbers in films. Some so hostile they resort to taking hostages or mowing down people with their heavy artillery. But every once in a while, you get a different kind of bank robber. One that is unconventional. And that is what you will see in The Old Man and the Gun starring Robert Redford.

Fox Searchlight has released a new trailer for the film, which doesn’t hide the fact that it is partially based on a true story. But the most interesting thing about it is that this film feels unlike any other bank robbery or heist film in terms of its cast, how it was shot, and even the music. Everything about it feels like a callback to the movies of old. Check out the trailer below.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Image 06

Tell me if you haven’t heard this one before. Ben Affleck says he is dissatisfied with being the Batman in the DCEU and then backtracks on those comments. Then rumors of Affleck’s unhappiness appear once more only for him to “squash” them at SDCC.

This story has been reported on so many times it’s really hard to keep up. So, let’s just mark this as the third time that we’ve been hearing Affleck wants out. However, it’s not Ben who is saying it, but his brother, Casey Affleck. Get more on this story below.

‘The Finest Hours’ Interview: Casey Affleck On Real-Life Heroism, Working With Cold Water, and More

Casey Affleck in The Finest Hours

The Finest Hours is the true story of how four members of the coast guard braved a massive storm to rescue 30 sailors stranded on the SS Pendleton, which had been split into two. But what you may not realize that the film is also a story of survival. Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) the ship’s engineer, took it upon himself to be the leader of the 30 man crew, most of whom were frightened at the thought of staying aboard a half-broken ship and wanted to take their chances on a fragile lifeboat. But with a calm demeanor, Sybert rallied the men to work together to survive one of the worst storms recorded in U.S. history.

We had a chance to talk to Affleck during the film’s press junket where he spoke to a group of journalists about what it was like to play a real-life hero, the filming process, the research, the sets, and more. Check out our interview with the actor below.

But his next film sees him something that is based on a story, and has him captaining a ship of a different kind. In The Finest Hours, the actor plays Bernie Webber, a man who rallies a team together to head straight into one of New England’s deadliest storms to save 30 stranded men aboard a sinking ship.
