Audience Reviews for The Getaway

Cool criminals cavort capriciously in this casual entertainment effort that's concerned about how cool everything looks and not about the complexity. Still fun.

A good action packed film with an array of well known actors. It has some great shootouts, stunts and steamy scenes with Kim Basinger! For some reason you can't get this on DVD region 2 so managed to catch it on TV. A good blast from the past enjoyable old school action film.

a) Because Steve McQueen and Ali MacGraw didn't get it right?

b) Because MacGraw wasn't blonde enough?

c) Because David Morse is a great actor who deserves to be in every movie possible?

d) Because Richard Farnsworth and Slim Pickens both played the same role well?

The correct answer is d.
