Based on the true story of Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford), a bank robber and escape artist who famously managed to escape from San Quentin State Prison at the age of 70 in a homemade kayak.

Following his great escape, Tucker embarks on a four-year crime spree, eluding local police detective John Hunt (Casey Affleck), who passionately pursues the convict in a desperate game of cat and mouse. Meanwhile, Tucker finds himself drawn to a woman named Jewel (Sissy Spacek), whom he meets on the side of the road during a police chase after one of his bank heists. Now he must work to hide his true identity from Jewel and outrun the police, all while continuing his impressive high profile capers.

  • 2 stars "good story but very slow. Husband fell asleep."
  • 3 stars "I have to agree with the majority of the reviews .... kind of slow going story line . The true bank robber the movie was based on ,apparently led a pretty colorful career , why not show some of it in the movie ? A good idea for a movie ,was a fail in my opinion ."
  • 2 stars "Disappointing. Nothing really there except decent, not extraordinary acting, and a shallow plot/story line. Missable."
