Finally something that's not a trilogy, or recooked after several servings minus the blood, senseless guts, and gore. For those who remember these times, you're well aware of the varied militia actions. This isn't for everyone, especially in these moments following the Boston tragedy, but release dates hold no crystal ball. The film was interesting, with some questionable character reactions but that's what makes the story move. The hilarious point for me, if the press is that far ahead of the Federal authorities, we're in trouble....but it's only a film.

Movie was gripping, fast-paced and kept my attention. Thought the last 5 minutes were weak and the movie could have been ended more effectively. Other than that, well acted and a good experience. Would rate it a 4 out of 5.

A group of fugitives who committed crimes in the 60s in the name of anti-establishment principles unexpectedly get outed after one of them turns herself in. I'm sure there are plenty of leftist baby boomers out there who will love this movie for the memories it brings and the principles it preaches about, namely anti-establishment rhetoric. However, as a movie it plays like a second-rate remake of The Fugitive. The storyline is similar: Redford's character is unjustly accused and he goes on the run to prove his innocence. The premise is weak, since a women he once loved has to turn herself in and confess all, including Redford's character's non-involvement for it to work. Nevertheless, Redford is on the run in this movie and he contacts his old network of leftist revolutionaries to try and clear his name. All this is very entertaining and some of the moments are thrilling, but no enough to save the film from its righteous preaching and uninspired storyline.

This is an ideal movie for left wing radicals and cop haters. It glorifies criminal acts, senseless murder and anti-American behavior.
