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

" Ah, at this is where we hit the wall with action films from the 60's and 70's. Car chases and women being slapped around. I had actually watched this film before but now remembered why I tried to push that out of my mind. It is a decent film from Peckinpah. He just isn't a director who is easy to watch."

"The king of sixties cool teams up with the queen of 70's sappy corn (that one chick from Love Story) in a on-the lam action crime film, the Getaway. In it, they play characters who are trying to...well, y'know....get away. Particularly from that one guy who go shot in the head in The Godfather. After starring in one of the classic car chase films of all time, Bullitt, Steve McQueen finds himself behind the wheel of another fast & furious flick. Oh okay, maybe it's not as fast or as furious a"

"October 9 I decided to take a break from horror just to make up for that average Steve McQueen movie. I enjoyed this much more than The Blob and I don't know why they remade it. Especially with an actor I don't care for."
