I think this movie was a bit of a cult classic, and I think there have been references to it.
I remember watching this movie when I was about 10, it was on TV and it was awesome! Basically (from what I remember) it was about an armed robber, he
robs a petrol station then steals a car to get away. In this car is a little boy, he can't go back because they will catch him, also I think he kind
of needs a hostage or something, can't quite remember.
Anyway! The two end up making some awesome bond, he starts stealing candy and toys for the kid, they become best friends and the robber sees the kid
as the boy he never had. (Spoiler alert) The end is mega mega sad because the little boy misses his Mum, so the robber decides to turn himself in so
the kid can be re-acquainted (at this point the police are obviously chasing him pretty hard to abducting a kid). There is a stand off where the
robber has snipers on him, he goes to give the kid a bit of memorabilia (something sentimental that was important to the guy), the cops think it was a
gun, the sniper shoots him and he dies in the kids arms.
I just thought about it last night at the pub and I can not find it on the internet... I just keep getting news reports about child abductions :/
Anyone know what movie I'm on about??
