... 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.

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.

There is a sweetness and a sadness to this film, but it is essentially a light-hearted piece with plenty of laughs to enjoy.

While it won't win points for originality or innovation, Going In Style is far from the cynical exercise that it could have been and instead proves to be a gentle comedy with an unexpectedly relevant voice.

Going in Style is far and away the worst thing [Michael Caine's] been involved with.
August 22, 2017
Because the movie's stars all qualify as treasures of the cinema, the best approach to Going in Style might be simply to sigh with disappointment and move on.
June 21, 2017
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.
June 16, 2017
Bad movies can reveal more about actors than great ones. Going in Style should confirm Caine, Freeman and Arkin as legends.
Full Review | Original Score: C
June 15, 2017
Like its three incomparable stars, "Going in Style" knows how to take its time. That means, for viewers, patience is required. And rewarded.
June 12, 2017
An escapist delight that has us all backing the proverbial little guy, whatever might happen.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
May 9, 2017
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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