THE BANDITS MOVIE PAGE




BANDITS(2001)


Bruce and Billy Bob play, what else, bandits who knock
over banks. This is the story of their crime spree from
Oregon to California, and how things got out of hand.
A pretty good movie! B


From a reviewer at Amazon.com:

Chemistry and quirkiness--and a stellar cast--help make
Barry Levinson's Bandits more than just another comedy
about ill-matched outlaws. Levinson's deft touch in Rain
Man is evident in the film's road-movie structure, which
follows bank robbers Joe (Bruce Willis) and Terry(Billy Bob
Thornton) on a crime spree from Oregon to California.
They're eventually joined by an aspiring stuntman and
getaway driver (Troy Garity, son of Jane Fonda) and a
neglected housewife (Cate Blanchett) who falls in love
with both Joe and Terry after escaping her boring marriage.
As scripted by Twin Peaks alumnus Harley Peyton, Bandits
shifts from character comedy to crime thriller with reckless
abandon, and the humor (particularly Terry's multiple
neuroses) is occasionally forced and flat. Levinson
compensates with offbeat moments of unexpected
tenderness, allowing his cast to express depths of character
not necessarily found in the script. A twist ending won't
surprise attentive viewers, but it gives Bandits the extra
kick it needs. --Jeff Shannon
