In this drama, Robert Redford is an ex-Weather Underground activist on the run from the FBI. This movie seems like a nostalgic tribute to American radicals from the 1970s. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but I found the film interesting rather than engrossing, as the dramatic aspects appeared a little flat. Also, and I say this with utmost respect to Robert Redford, he seemed a little old for the role. Shia LaBeouf’s pushy reporter is unbelievably unsympathetic and irritating, but Julie Christie’s hard, unbowed, anarchistic and inappropriately named Mimi is compelling.

"Who the Hell is 'The Captain' anyway?"
-"He is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension."- Anonymous
