Originality is not the purpose of Going in Style, the kind of old-fashioned entertainment that gives old-fashioned entertainment a bad name.

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

Another of those films that pretends to show older people respect while actually treating them like comic nincompoops

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.

All three stars deliver exactly what you expect from them -- nothing more, nothing new -- but their onscreen familiarity is a strange comfort in itself.

You probably have to have seen both films to find the new one as infuriating as I did, but even if you haven't, there's no question that it's terrible.

There are weightier movies with more moral complexity, but this is just a hug from grandpa. And who couldn't use more of those?
April 7, 2017
It's a nice movie, but also an exceedingly safe one, and as such spending any more time than this handful of paragraphs to review just isn't worth the effort it would take to compose another sentence.

Yes, it's good to see these wonderful actors get together in, well, almost anything, but this broken-down jalopy of a movie is not, to put it charitably, an ideal vehicle.
April 7, 2017
Its stars are such pros, they're so enormously charismatic and have such lovely chemistry with each other, it's hard not to be charmed by their mere presence on screen.

Update of 1979's three-men-and-a-bank-robbery caper is no bargain, but it does let you hang with the A-list senior cast of Morgan Freeman, 79, Alan Arkin, 83, and Michael Caine, 84.

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.
April 7, 2017
Grab-bag references to comedy entertainment glory give Going in Style a soothing veneer but never cheer its hollow centre.
April 7, 2017
The movie will probably find a modest audience for a weekend or two, but it could have been so much bigger if it didn't reduce senior citizens to sympathetic data cards. If it truly gave us something to see.

It is such an undeniable thrill to see these three legends together, it really doesn't matter that the heist movie, directed by Zach Braff is nothing more than a pleasant stroll.
April 6, 2017
Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin are such a dream team that we almost forget how weak this remake of the 1979 George Burns "Going in Style" is.
April 6, 2017
It would be a stretch (although not much of one) to call Going in Style "wholesome" but it's dull and badly in need of an injection of energy.
April 6, 2017
A lazy hash of cheap geezer gags and spoon-fed sentiment.
April 6, 2017
The talents of three great actors -- Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin -- are lazily squandered in a rehash of a pensioners' bank heist story first made in 1979.
April 6, 2017
It's strictly comfort food, 99 percent predictable, though the 1 percent that isn't - you'll know it when you see it - is deftly executed.
