"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)
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 23, 2017
It's worst crime is wasting a brilliant cast, who are valiant in defeat.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
April 21, 2017
Freeman and Arkin are spot on, but it is Caine who stands out.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Going in Style is not a bad film by any means, but its biggest crime is being an unimpressionable one.
April 19, 2017
Unfailingly genial, yet unrelentingly generic.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
April 19, 2017
For a story about geriatrics gone wild (played with affable crustiness by Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin), this work is very tame indeed.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

The film can be seen with ease and sympathy. Maybe with too much sugar, but also with a certain containtment. [Full review in Spanish]
April 17, 2017
A well-intentioned routinary comedy, and let's face it, very charming. [Full review in Spanish]
April 17, 2017
"real elderly characters who, rather than being the butt of the joke, crack the best ones in the whole movie."
Full Review | Original Score: 14.50/20

Going in Style could have at least been more enjoyable if it had fully embraced its goofiness, or even if it evolved into a clever heist movie.
April 13, 2017
Going in Style is that most irksome, instantly forgettable of films -- a remake that fails to make the case for not leaving well enough alone. It also fails to offer its cast material worthy of its talent.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
April 12, 2017
A certainly entertaining film decidedly turned to humor. [Full review in Spanish]
April 12, 2017
The three Oscar-winners [bring] their natural talent, presence and undeniable charm to the table, keeping things entertaining, even if it is largely forgettable.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 12, 2017
What one might not expect is a plot that's fairly heinous, both morally and logistically, with characters who remain justified and likable throughout.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
April 12, 2017
Another of those films that pretends to show older people respect while actually treating them like comic nincompoops
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 12, 2017
Having veteran Oscar winners Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin share a screen is a pleasure in and of itself, never mind what the movie is. In the case of Going in Style, the movie ain't much.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

All three stars deliver exactly what you expect from them -- nothing more, nothing new -- but their onscreen familiarity is a strange comfort in itself.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
