Going in Style Reviews

Going in Style has a good heart. And while the humor is surprisingly clean, its optimism is tempered by the pessimistic reality that banks and corporations are greedy and callous, and people you care about are going to get hurt.

Bad movies can reveal more about actors than great ones. Going in Style should confirm Caine, Freeman and Arkin as legends.

Like its three incomparable stars, "Going in Style" knows how to take its time. That means, for viewers, patience is required. And rewarded.

An escapist delight that has us all backing the proverbial little guy, whatever might happen.

The modest pleasures of Going in Style come from watching three old pros expertly and enjoyably playing off each other. They may not be quick... but they have skills and experience, a point that applies to acting as well as armed robbery.

Fine, sufficiently funny remake of the long-forgotten 1979 comedy starring George Burns about three geriatrics who rob a bank.

Stay away. I wish I had.

Although it intends to show old folks in a positive light, most of the jokes revolve around them looking stupid at worst, and creaky at best.

April 28, 2017
This lackluster if good-natured remake clearly targets an older demographic that might find the jokes nostalgic instead of stale.
April 27, 2017
Caine, Freeman and Arkin are all much, much better than the material they're saddled with.
April 26, 2017
It's comfy, familiar, and trading on an established reputations.

April 25, 2017
Despite Going in Style's interest in aestheticising the past, its three main characters never have a very convincing shared history. They're likeable enough, but it's hard to care when they decide to break bad.
April 24, 2017
The retirees condemn international outsourcing of jobs and Wall Street greed and then hatch a sweet get-even scheme. Their real-life equivalents voted for Donald Trump.

"It's funny 'cause they're old" is the driving principle behind just about every frame of this film, and it gets it half-right (Splice Today)

It's worst crime is wasting a brilliant cast, who are valiant in defeat.

April 21, 2017
Originality is not the purpose of Going in Style, the kind of old-fashioned entertainment that gives old-fashioned entertainment a bad name.

Freeman and Arkin are spot on, but it is Caine who stands out.

April 21, 2017
This is a lousy remake of the "old guys rob a bank wearing rubber noses" bleak comedy from back in 1979 that starred George Burns and Art Carney.
April 20, 2017
Michael, Morgan and Alan roll out more than enough of the old magic to keep the proceedings enjoyable.
