About the Movie

Double Academy Award winners' Kevin Costner and Clint Eastwood confront each other from opposite sides of the law in A Perfect World, an acclaimed, multi-layered manhunt saga (directed by Eastwood) that rumbles down Texas backroads toward a harrowing collision with fate. Costner plays Butch Haynes, a hardened prison escapee on the lam with a young hostage (T.J. Lowther in a remarkable film debut) who sees in Butch the father figure he never had. Eastwood is wily Texas Ranger Red Garnett, leading deputies and a criminologist (Laura Dern) in a statewide pursuit. Red knows every road and pothole in the Panhandle. What's more, he knows the elusive Haynes-because their paths have crossed before.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: In going beyond chase-yarn duty, Eastwood and Costner do themselves proud. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 24, 2006

Rotten: Hancock's surface-skimming script is too formulaic for the job. There's enough material here for a crisp 90-minute entertainment. At 2+ hours, the leisurely, mildly engaging A Perfect World barely sputters across the finish line. – David Ansen, Newsweek, Feb 12, 2018

Fresh: Within its narrow, unambitious, commercial boundaries, the movie is highly watchable. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Sep 4, 2002

Fresh: This is a movie that surprises you. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

One of my personal all time favorites

I first saw this when I was nine years old, and I watched it again tonight, and to this day it hasn't lost a beat. The combination of Kevin Costner and Clint Eastwood both giving Oscar-calibur performances is truly what made this movie a masterpiece. How it did not get nominated for a single Academy Award or even a Golden Globe is beyond my explanation. If you haven't seen it, see it now! Either download it here, or go to your nearest rental store... and then download it here after you've watched it. Cheers, Clint!
