CommentsThis film contains complex and mature themes of crime investigations, bank robberies, catching criminals and romance. These themes are treated light heartedly and sensitively with little to no sense of threat and menace, however the film does romanticize Forrest's love for robbing banks as it is shows it in an idealistic and unrealistic manner that makes his life of crime seem better than it really was for purposes of making the film more interesting rather than make crime an attractive way of life. Themes would not be appropriate for viewers below the age of 10 as the themes may be misleading and confusing for young and impressionable viewers who may misunderstand the film and its intention. Viewers aged 10-12 may find themes mature but not likely to cause harm, with parental guidance to provide reassurance, the film may be of entertainment and historical value.

Ann Hornaday quote iconRedford an adorable rogue.

Ilan Preskovsky quote iconWhether or not this is the last we see of Redford in front of the cameras (and as he himself said, never say never), The Old Man & the Gun is an unexceptional but highly enjoyable, if sleepy, little film on its own terms but is elevated to a must-see for fans of a guy who has been an exceptional force for good in cinema over the past half century (plus).
