Some films try to bring out the best in their cast...Other movies just want to coast on the charisma of their stars without bothering to make an effort in any other department. Going in Style falls firmly in the latter category.

It's a crying shame that a cast this talented is saddled with this tire fire.

The "go big or go home" mentality of the plot doesn't particularly mesh well with the low energy screen adaptation, making Going In Style a largely forgettable movie.

Going in Style isn't offensively bad. It's just a lame waste of time. It is the type of film that kinda makes me feel bad for everyone involved.

Gives these three old pros a chance to showcase their talents quite well. Their talent might be a notch or two above the level of the script, but they work so hard you can't help but be marginally entertained.

Going in Style is an inoffensive, unimaginative comedy that coasts on the charms of its leading trio while leaning heavily on broad comedic sitcom tropes.

What's not to love? The script, for starters.

The performances of Caine, Arkin and Freeman actually feel wonderfully understated. They give these characters life and make their stories tremendously relatable.

... this remake is much less dark than the '79 original... [Full review in Spanish]

As the film progresses ... the inanity of the proceedings begins to take over the comedy, and no amount of performance magic can rescue the conclusion, enjoyably madcap as it may be.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

The second half is entertaining enough, the three stars and Ann-Margaret are endearing, and the situation is one that many Americans can identify with, no matter what political party they support.

A simplifying and reassuring fable, more propagandistic than sharp. [Full review in Spanish]

To cut a long story short, Going in Style is a warm and wonderful film on friendship and life post 60. Watch it with your best friends for life as some relationships are worth melting for indeed.

An entertaining comedy that leans on the talent of its stars, "Going in Style" is a fun way to kill 90 minutes in a darkened theatre.

This is Braff's first mainstream film effort, and he falls back on his sitcom roots, going broad with the humor and pretty pedestrian in style.
October 11, 2017
If you're going to make a film about three old geezers robbing a bank, then a cast really doesn't come much classier, stylish or, indeed, more authentically venerable than this trio of Oscar winners.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

This is like watching three master actors have a blast playing off each other. And it's a hard not to have get a thrill watching them in this charming and funny comedy.
