A fabulous movie
on 7 November 2003
Having been an Eastwood fan for many years, I was overjoyed to see this film finally released on DVD. It is without doubt one of his greatest films, although Jeff Bridges steals the show, and received an Oscar nomination - in his first appearance!
The story is of the friendship between two very different characters, the old and seasoned veteran Eastwood, and the wild and irresponsable Bridges, who meet while Eastwood is escaping assasination by an old friend of Eastwood's, George Kennedy. Eventually they all get together to take on Montana Armoured Bank, with mixed results.
There's nothing new in the story or plot of this film, and admittedly it looks a little dated now, but the filmwork is outstanding, and Bridges shines. Coupled with a little action and a tragic ending, this film is truely wonderful!
