Clint Eastwood and Jeff Bridges star as an off-beat pair of modern-day outlaws in this bold, action-packed crime thriller. Featuring outstanding supporting performances by George Kennedy, Gary Busey and Geoffrey Lewis, it's a crisp, well-written, witty, tough and superbly cast caper movie. John "Thunderbolt' Doherty (Eastwood) is a former thief whose razor-sharp wits and steely nerves made him a master of his profession, but he's about to re-enter the criminal world with a new partner: 'Lightfoot' (Bridges), a brash young drifter whose energy and exuberance give the veteran a new outlook on life. Their target: the seemingly impenetrable Montana Armoured Depository. After forming an uneasy alliance with Thunderbolt's former partners in crime (Kennedy and Lewis), they launch an amazing scheme that will test the limits of their endurance... and the power of their friendship.
