Charley Varrick Reviews
Walter Matthau and Andrew Robinson attempt to rob a bank in small town, and get away with it - getting rid of dead wife (who was shot in the process of driving) by burning the vehicle and her body in it. The two change their getup and vehicle with Crop-Duster van. They come to realize that they have stolen money from mafia, as bank manager discloses the amount less to reporters; as compared to bulk of dollar bills. They must go through planned scheme to evade getting caught.
It started robustly, I thought (believe me) I was going to watch a comedy film, but soon realized upon shoot-to-kill process that this was utterly different to my expectations; and no sooner did I lay my eyes on Walter's expressions, I knew the guy is something of a mystery man. Walter gives strong and occupying performance in this chase-thriller. It is fast and entertaining. Too much in too little rates, is good enough. If you are fan of 'heist' movies , this is it really.
