Critics reviews

Matthau plays the eponymous Varrick, crop-duster pilot and small-time bank robber who must rely on his wits when he accidentally takes a huge score intended for the Mob. It’s a breathtaking performance, making full use of Matthau’s working-poor background… A very real sense of stubborn self-reliance inflects Varrick’s every move.
