Must go. Intelligent and thought provoking. Professionals at the top of their game

Many remember the days of riots and ruination; 1968, the Democratic Convention in Chicago gave birth to the “Chicago 7”, “Weatherman” “Weather Underground”, “Revolutionary Youth Movement”; sad, delusional, debilitating time when young people worldwide violently protested America’s involvement in Vietnam; a war that altered America forever; creating the division between modern and post modern society; people of promise, jailed or living lives of manufactured identities...
Redford’s valiant effort to produce a thriller from the novel by Neil Gordon, lacks the intellectual helium to soar; listless, stale, wizened reminders of time’s destined role to bestow perspective, wisdom, eventual oblivion...

Good, edge if you seat, story. Great acting. How an you miss with Robert Redford, Julie Cristie, Sam Elliott to name just a few!!! And Jackie Evancho seems to have an acting career in her future. Only disappointment was that she didn't sing!!!

Our whole family are huge Redford fans - 3 Days of the Condor and Jeremiah Johnson being all time favorites, but this movie, which comes off like the Geratol version of 3 Days was a huge disappointment. A stellar cast: Robert Redford, Susan Sarandon, Shia Lebouf, Chris Cooper, Nick Nolte, and Terence Howard, could not rescue this sleepy drama.
I came expecting "3 Days of the Condor" revisited, or something akin to "The Fugitive", but instead, it was duller than "the Bridges of Madison County".
In the last act, I found myself falling asleep, waiting for some drama. There just really wasn't any. Nice to see some favorite actors, but this one won't win any awards and will be best appreciated at nursing homes.
