October 16, 2017
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.
August 24, 2017
Going in Style is far and away the worst thing [Michael Caine's] been involved with.
April 14, 2017
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 20, 2017
Going in Style is not a bad film by any means, but its biggest crime is being an unimpressionable one.
April 5, 2017
Going in Style is good-natured, spirited, and heart warming but may leave you wanting a bigger pay-off.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Going in Style is a baffling blend of tones that ultimately plays as a harmless piece of fluff devoid of any significant stakes.

April 7, 2017
Going in Style is a movie that could've been made by seemingly anyone, and it finds Braff creatively bankrupt.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

I didn't love it or hate it, but I'll definitely forget it.

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

Perhaps required a handshake agreement with Warner Bros. that [Braff] would be barred from including a Shins song on the soundtrack.

At 11 p.m. on cable, or even at the dollar theater, a reunion special can be perfectly good. But like the bank job their onscreen characters are struggling to pull off, Going in Style feels like a film that is just beyond salvaging.

I leave the cinema happier if I've been emotionally satisfied - if something has been risked, even lost, as well as gained. Having no emotional stakes leaves me cold, and leaves three cheeky actors with nothing to play.

As to which is creakier, the hips, the knees or Ted Melfi's script, I'm afraid it's a close-run thing.

For the most part, this Going in Style isn't going much of anywhere, and certainly not in style.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
April 6, 2017
There's a relatively charming, tender tone to this piece, albeit a throwaway piece of cinema that is unlikely to linger long in the memory.

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

Caine, Freeman and Arkin are all much, much better than the material they're saddled with.

This a movie that can think of nothing funnier than arranging three Oscar winners in front of a TV to make catty remarks about The Bachelorette.

It's worst crime is wasting a brilliant cast, who are valiant in defeat.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 6, 2017
No one in Going in Style seems to really know what the hell they're doing or why. And even though that goes double for the filmmakers, at least no one succumbs to taking any of it seriously.
