Format: DVD
Partially based on true events, Goldie Hawn plays a mother trying to get her son back from the state after being declared unfit for motherhood along with her busted out of prison husband. They take a cop hostage along the way and the rest is an absorbing road adventure.

Spielberg proves he was always a masterful storyteller. The film is paced well and we are shown the human but tainted side of our heroes each step of their journey. The cinematography and scenes are beautifully done. The movie reminded very much of Terence Malicks Badlands.

The acting is great and you really care about what happens to them which is a job well done. Spielberg proves right here like Lucas with American Grafitti that they did indie really really well when they had to. Pity they moved on to bigger fish (literally in Spielbergs case)....9/10

There is a certain quality about all films made around this time. The cinematography in this film is outstanding, the acting is good and although the film is fairly long, it moves at a fast enough pace to hold the viewer's attention. An absorbing road movie/drama based on a true story.

This is one of Spielberg's very best films, a low-budget road movie made after the TV film "Duel", and I rate it alongside Jaws.
Great cinematography, pace and some terrific acting (I especially love the dialogue between the old couple in the car at the roadside)
And although it's about a dysfunctional family par excellence, there's not a teddy bear or little boy looking for his lost father in sight.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The Sugarland Express is very loosely based on the true story in May 1969 of Robert and Ila Faye Dent. The film develops into possibly the slowest ever police chase road movie. There are lots of great set pieces along the way, and the cinematography is outstanding throughout.

This was Spielberg's first feature film, preceding Jaws by a year, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind by three. Previously he had directed a couple of TV films (Duel being the most famous), and a few episodes from shows like Night Gallery and even an episode of Columbo.

Despite playing unlikeable leads in a downbeat film, both Goldie Hawn and William Atherton give great performances. If you enjoy Bonnie & Clyde - 40th Anniversary Edition [DVD], Badlands [DVD], Dirty Mary Crazy Larry & Race With the Devil [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC], or just road movies in general then I am sure you will find something to like in this wonderful film.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By AK TOP 500 REVIEWER on 10 Jan. 2012
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Sugarland Express was Spielberg's first feature film (Duel (Special Edition) [DVD] was released in cinemas only after its success on small screens) and is one of the better road movies of the 70s. A young Goldie Hawn playing a mildly delinquent mother bent on getting her son back - after being declared unfit for motherhood - and her prison escapee husband decide to kidnap a police officer in 1970s Texas and they jointly undertake a journey to Sugarland to claim their son. The film is vaguely based on true events from a couple of years earlier.

The movie shows much of Spielbergs potential and is excellently shot. The acting is good and while there is certainly some sentimentality, it is very well done (so it's not of the soppy variety). What rather surprised me, given the topic, was the frequent and excellent sense of humour brought to the film. There are a myriad of scenes, which get lightened for the viewer by a judicious societal criticism or interesting potshot. On top of that, one encounters a very different police force from what one is used to in movies (even from the 70s), one that is much more bent on serving society than on shooting everything that moves.

Overall it is an excellent film and well worth watching. It will not have the wild chase scenes or societal comentary of something like Vanishing Point [1971] [DVD] but it is a well executed (semi-) debut, with some inspired acting, and a good many hillarious scenes along the way. I expect it is one you will watch more than once, too.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This movie is over 30 years-old, but holds up well. The story is moving, yet not all very sentimental. Many believe that THE SUGARLAND EXPRESS was a flop in cinema. This is not true. The original film earned over $8 million in the USA in it's original release which at the time made the movie a modest success. It wasn't until a year later with the release of JAWS that the first $100 million movie would be distributed, setting a new standard of success in Hollywood.

7/10

A good directorial Hollywood debut for Spielberg who does a moving road movie but this was just the start before he would real talent in his film which would be big and that film was Jaws.
