      j f Could have benefitted from 5-10 more minutes for plot development. And I could have done without hearing "uncle" so much. Almost a really good movie. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I wanted to like this film, having kind of a throwback style of story about old-timer George C. Scott as a former getaway driver being brought out of retirement to pull one last job with some young punks. I've always liked the archetypal "old-timer" story, whether it's Humphrey Bogart as an aging gangster in "High Sierra" or whether it's Lee Marvin as an aging cowpoke in "Monte Walsh." What I think I liked about those films and others like them is that the aging characters were now people who the times have passed by. This film, however, is a forward straightforward caper film with double crosses and populated with uninteresting characters. John Huston was the original director on this film, but her reportedly clashed with Scott and subsequently quit. I can't help but think that Huston's vision for the film would have been much better. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Scott is good, but Musante is not. the star is the Supercharged BMW Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member another driver pic like 'drive' or 'the get-away' Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Started by John Huston ,but director Richard Fleischer ,stepped in after Huston had a massive falling out with George C Scott during the films production. The film does lack a little in places thanks to the director change midstream ,but on the whole this is another solid 70s action thriller. Harry Garmes is a mob driver who comes out of retirement to carry out the last run of the title which involves transporting a young hood and his girlfiend to safety. Needless to say things dont go as planned and Garmes and his companions are pursued halfway across Europe. C Scott is excellent as Garmes who has seen it all and just wants to live in peace ,his interaction between himself and the cocky Paul Ricard played by Tony Musante is one of the highlights of the film . We also gets some cracking dialogue and a snappy chase sequence which helps the film along. If your a fan of Walter Hills Driver , Or Nick Redfns Drive ,then you really should seek out this lean and tough thriller. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Movie 2 of 2 in my "Aged American Criminal Abroad" film fest (THE AMERICAN being film one.) As a driver for the mob, Scott takes a backseat to cocky, loose-cannon fugitive (Musante.) What should have been a classic character study is a fairly unexciting chase picture.

      Margaret Hinxman Daily Telegraph (UK) In any guise, George C. Scott is worth watching, though his performance here seems haunted by the same tedious resignation that atrophies the script. Jun 8, 2020 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times The movie forgets what kinds of characters it's developed and gives us an ending we can't accept. Rated: 2/4 Jul 10, 2018 Full Review Dilys Powell Sunday Times (UK) Stirring. Jun 2, 2020 Full Review Tony Mastroianni Cleveland Press The scenery is breathtaking and the mountain road chases better than average. Apr 4, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Downbeat but well-crafted crime thriller. Rated: B Dec 28, 2015 Full Review Read all reviews
