Critic Reviews for The Last Run

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

In any guise, George C. Scott is worth watching, though his performance here seems haunted by the same tedious resignation that atrophies the script.

The movie forgets what kinds of characters it's developed and gives us an ending we can't accept.

July 9, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The scenery is breathtaking and the mountain road chases better than average.
