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

"First viewing - June 22nd I wanted something kind of light or fun to watch, and for some reason went with a Sam Peckinpah movie instead. Ah well. I enjoyed it for what it is. The cast does an excellent job across the board, and the story was interesting and entertaining most of the time. Some parts didn't make much sense to me, but then if films followed logic at all times they'd be pointless. I would've liked a little more humor in it, but it's fine. Not sure I'd sit through it again, but as a"

"Typerä toimintaelokuva, jonka sivujuonena on häkellyttävän perverssi aisankannattaja-fantasia. Sam tykkäsi ryypätä."

"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 "
