Unlike the Region 1 release this is a terrific widescreen transfer of this great Don Siegel thriller.

Format: DVD
I bought this many years back when this wasn't available on region 2. This is something of a less well known film from Don Siegel (Dirty Harry being the most obvious) However this has all the touches of a fine Siegel film including an excellent cast and storyline/script.

Walter Matthau plays the lead role of Charley Varrick a one time stunt pilot in his 50's who's living a fairly down and out/modest life in a caravan park. The opening scene of the burning overalls with Charley's name on it mirrors the ending where is becomes clear what's happened.
We start off with a bank robbery with Varrick and his main crime partner Harman Sullivan (Andrew Robinson) robbing a bank with Varricks wife Nadine (Jacqueline Scott) as the getaway driver, another gang member Dutcher is killed during the robbery and Nadine is also shot and dies shortly afterwards.

Despite the setbacks and less than ideal robbery execution Varrick and Sullivan head back to their caravan/trailer and discover a huge amount of money far more than a normal bank heist would yield. It soon becomes clear the pair have hit a "mob laundering" operation by pure accident. The rest of the story continues in the cat/mouse chase that follows the Mafia trying to get their money back, and the low profile Varrick trying to keep Sullivan under control, he's keen to spend the money and it brings attention to the gang. Hot on their trail is the mob "enforcer" in the form of Joe Don Baker (who plays Molly) and Maynard Boyle (John Vernon) is the mafia financial boss.

Format: DVD
Directed with immense old-fashioned professionalism by Don Siegel, this is a very entertaining movie whose convoluted plot clicks into place just perfectly at the end; you do have to attend very carefully to the details, but the pay-off is very rewarding. But there is, it seems to me, a sub-text to the goings-on which few critics have ever even noticed, much less confronted. What is this film really about? I suggest it's about movie reviewers and their hypocrisies - more especially, it's about the finger-wagging reviews which Siegel's immediately previous movie, "Dirty Harry", got in several quarters. That savage and terrifying picture was derided by some simply because its star was the Nixon-voting Clint Eastwood; it was called a fascist movie because its hero was a bit of a brute, and the ambiguities which Siegel was so careful to put in place were largely ignored. In "Charley Varrick", however, the star is a favourite of liberals, the urbane, amiable Walter Matthau; these same finger-pointers mostly found him much less disturbing. Yet Matthau's Charley Varrick, for all his good humour and likeable refusal to be cowed by the Mafia (or anyone else), and for all his admirable courage in relying on his brains and skill to win the day, is a terrible person, in many ways. Think about it - he's not only a bank robber and car thief, he's a gun-toting desperado whose botched heist at the film's start leads to several people dying (including a blameless police officer); more than that, he deliberately arranges for his surviving colleague in crime to be captured and tortured to death by the mob's sadistic enforcer, and he's even in bed with another crook's mistress mere days after the horrible death of his own, supposedly beloved, wife.

This film has obviously influenced later works at least up to the 1990s and could arguably be described as a milestone. There is somewhat unusually much violence for the early 70s, but - hey folks,it's a Don Siegel movie!
What I like best next to suspense and an interesting storyline full of suprises is Walter Matthau acting one of his few unfunny parts. He is Charley Varrick, an independent criminal and one of the very few professionals in a world in which by far most outlaws are rather imbeciles or psychos than professionals. Varrick knows most of the time what to do and even more important what not to do and with his indestructible will to survive he even manages to trick the Mafia. Are there many Outlaws that shrewd and cold-blooded in the real world? Let's hope not.

P.S.: Subtitles would have been slightly nicer for non-native speakers.

You do not need to have heard about the actor, Walter Matthau, to enjoy this move. One of the really good ones from back in the seventies..A really good script, and great and enjoyable actors, makes this film one of the " must have " for all your filmfans out there..ENJOY !!

Charley is a crop duster, a business which he has a hard time making a decent living out of if the trailer-park home he shares with his wife is anything to go by. So, Charley and his gang rob the occasional small-town bank to make a bit of extra cash. One day it all goes wrong, a cop gets killed, and the gang make off with far more money than they ought for such a small bank, and far more money than the bank is reporting stolen. Varrick correctly guesses that the bank has been laundering money for the Mafia, who naturally want the money back. Enter Molly (Joe Don Baker), a cheerfully vicious and amoral gang enforcer and generally unstoppable force-of-nature who is hell-bent on tracking down Varrick an his crew.

This is an example of how crime films should be made, films driven by superb scriptwriting and direction (Don Siegel), and dialogue and action delivered by competent actors. If this movies ever comes out on R2, I'll be first in the queue
