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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Stay away. I wish I had.

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.

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

Michael, Morgan and Alan roll out more than enough of the old magic to keep the proceedings enjoyable.

The film can be seen with ease and sympathy. Maybe with too much sugar, but also with a certain containtment. [Full review in Spanish]

A well-intentioned routinary comedy, and let's face it, very charming. [Full review in Spanish]

"real elderly characters who, rather than being the butt of the joke, crack the best ones in the whole movie."
