The first hour of The Getaway King is a conventional and forgettable story of a charismatic thief; things only get interesting when characters turn themselves around unexpectedly. A criminal goes straight. A cop leaves the force and helps someone in need. A formerly pliant crew member goes rogue, sadistic, and vengeful. The oppressive government topples in favor of freedom. All of this redeems the movie and renews our interest in the characters and their situations.

Dawid Ogrodnik is a Polish Errol Flynn, fit, handsome, suave, dashing, and smiling, resembling a cross between Leonardo DiCaprio in Catch Me If You Can and the young Ernest Hemingway. The actor's overwhelming likability fuels a story that probably wouldn't work without him.
