"Protagonist Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford) robs banks!" Great, but why does he "need" to rob banks? We know he can't "stop" robbing banks, but why does he "need" to rob banks? We, the audience, never learn why. And whenever I hear a character - "any" character in "any" scene - make a joke followed by saying "I'm just kidding" or "I was only joking," well, then, you've just ended the scene - it fell flat on its face and you've got nowhere else to go! This happened 2 or 3 times. Plus, there's a montage 10 minutes before the end of the film that doesn't work. That montage could and should be cut into the beginning of the film. And why shy away from showing any real affection between the two lead characters? There's one single, little peck of a kiss. What, older people aren't passionate, don't share intimacies between one another, kiss, and have sex? Pla-leeze!
