After falling in love with Andrea (Elisha Cuthbert), a caring social worker he can't provide for, he turns to robbing banks and discovers that he's exceptionally good at it. Under the guise of a security analyst, Robert begins flying around the country robbing multiple cities in a day, eventually catching the attention of national news outlets that dub him The Flying Bandit. Addicted to the rush and money that provides his double life, Robert eventually turns to loanshark and reputed gangster Tommy Kay (Mel Gibson) for bigger opportunities. But with Robert's notoriety growing in record time, he is put into the direct sights of a ruthless detective (Nestor Carbonell) who will stop at nothing to bring him down.

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      It struggles to consistently capture its fact-based story's stranger-than-fiction charm, but Bandit mostly works -- and Josh Duhamel has never been better.

      Cath Clarke Guardian One of those true-crime films where you come away with the impression that the film-makers have spent a bit too long hanging out with their subject, sitting in smoky bars listening to tall tales about the good ol’ bad days. Rated: 2/5 Feb 28, 2023 Full Review Dominic Baez Seattle Times Too few moments stand out because the film’s plot is just too disjointed. Rated: 1.5/4 Sep 20, 2022 Full Review Elizabeth Weitzman TheWrap That he captivates so many of his victims is only understandable because he’s played with so much elan by Duhamel. (It may occur to you while watching that the star would have made a great, old-school Bond.) Sep 20, 2022 Full Review Abhishek Srivastava The Times of India Bandit is a passable entertainment, but it falls short of being remarkable. It's an average film that is likely to be forgettable once it ends. Rated: 3/5 May 1, 2023 Full Review James Marsh Deep Dive Movie Reviews (YouTube) While perhaps not a classic of the heist genre, Bandit is a fun rollercoaster that comfortably holds its own Apr 4, 2023 Full Review Greg Hyde Under the Radar Bandit works well as a piece of lightweight entertainment that has clearly taken quite a bit of artistic license with the real-life events upon which it is based. Rated: 7/10 Oct 28, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Veronika T solido dramma poliziesco e una grande interpretazione di Josh Duhamel, l'attore principale Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/08/24 Full Review angela g one of the best josh Duhamel movies ever made based on a true story Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/06/24 Full Review Aaron C really liked this, Duhamel fantastic. good script too kidn of a catch me if you can vibe! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/02/24 Full Review Darren B Whilst not perfect, and straying a little from the true events on which it is based, it is a charming film about a charming bank robber. I found myself smiling at times during his interactions with the victims of his crime due to his disguises and personality. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/24 Full Review Giorgio G Well, it's neither a comedy, though it is partly comical, nor is it an action bank heist movie. It is rather a slightly amusing documentary, movie style, about a guy who actually did rob 59 banks in Canada in the eighties. Josh, clearly more handsome than the real-life bank robber, gives the movie and the character a certain charme, making this movie rather entertaining, though not a "must see". 5 1/2 of 10 points. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/02/23 Full Review Stephen M Loved it great movie...Mel Gibson delivers with a supportive superb cast. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
