Let's get the cheap lazy jokes out of the way at the top:
It's Catch Me if You Can on Geritol.
It's The Great Train Robbery (Seniors Discount Fare).
It's The (All-You-Can Eat) Italian (Pasta-Buffet) Job. Okay. Enough.
What writer/director David Lowery's The Old Man & the Gun actually turns out to be, of course, is exactly what it looks like: a defiantly unhurried and genially old-fashioned cops-and-robbers yarn, built around a wry, wistful central performance from Robert Redford.
