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.
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.
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.
