Solid action movie

"You don't have to be Dillinger for this one."

Under the direction of Sam Peckinpah (who's also responsible for the amazing Western The Wild Bunch), The Getaway is both an excellent anti-hero action movie and a solid character study. This 1972 film is often considered one of Peckinpah's most commercial projects, but it nevertheless bears the director's distinctive stamp: a terrific ... read more

A good movie

Honestly, I had some pretty high expectations with this flick. I mean, come on, a movie directed by Sam Peckinpah and starring the king of cool, Steve McQueen, it really sounded great on paper. Indeed, I think that Steve McQueen was a really awesome actor and I try to catch up his movies whenever I get the chance and, this time, he was working with Sam Peckinpah so I thought this flick should be a... read more

"14.1, PC Vankilasta vapautuneen Steve McQueenin ja hänen poppoonsa pankkiryöstö ei mene suunnitelmien mukaan, joten McQueenin ja Ali MacGraw'n esittämä pariskunta joutuu pakosalle. Tapahtumarikkaassa The Getawayssa on hienoa pakoelokuvan tuntua, kun päähenkilökaksikko joutuu milloin poliisin, milloin kanssarikollisen jahtaamaksi. Näyttely on McQueenin ja MacGraw'n osalta toimivaa ja päähenkilöiden taustoja on pohjustettu juuri ja juuri sen verran, että suhdesotkujen selvittelystä "

" This is a cool heist action movie that suits the acting energies of both Steve MacQueen and Ali MacGraw well. Action is good and it is fast-paced but it is ruined a little by the fact that it feels it should have continued a little longer as it seem to stop when it is at it most interesting. Sam Peckinpah's direction is flawless but glossy and it is not as risk-taking as it other projects as it has been edited and recut by Steve MacQueen in post-production. Still it is a fun and satisfying watc"

" 31 March. Sam Peckinpah's turbulent crime caper and cat and mouse chase keep rolling through the charisma of its two lead stars Steve McQueen and Ali McGraw, make what seem to be incomprehensible situations believable. "

"Katsottu: 10.4.2016, DVD Ihan hyvä leffa. Välillä vähän tylsä, mutta loppupuolella nähtävä hieno ammuskelukohtaus nostaa leffan pisteet kolmeen ja puoleen. "
