The movie was the best thing, which could happen to me in sneakpreview. I laughed so often, an wonderful story combined with greatactors and Zach Braff, who made a great job to transform the old movieinto todays background. I'd like to see more movies like this, than thestupid standard comedy from Hollywood. I recommend everyone to see thisfilm and have great two hours. A quick summary: perfect chosen actor,sa bit predictable, but i liked it anyway, jokes,jokes,jokes... GO watchthis film !

A story about 3 elderly gentleman wanting to rob a bank in retaliation for not receiving their pension funds is something out of a yahoo news article 3 pages down. But as ridiculous as the premise is, there's some unexpected enjoyment to be had here.
Going in Style is directed by Zach Braff of all people. The guy who brought us Garden State? Yep. I imagine this was a situation where he saw an opportunity to work with three of the greatest actors of this generation and took it, instead of this being some sort of passion project on his part. But that really is the selling point of the movie, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and Alan Arkin. Each are legends on their own, but seeing all three of them together is a pleasure for any film fan. These three have taken some heat in the past about appearing in mediocre films and giving mediocre performances, with some even accusing them of "mailing it in". Luckily, there's none of that here. You can tell the three of them had a blast filming together and it clearly shows in the final product. The film won't knock your socks off, but I'll watch anything with these actors.
It's not all giggles, though. There's a deeper message in Going in Style about living your life until the very end, and not sitting back and letting others ruin your life. I'm not sure the film truly succeeded in that sense or I was getting a little sad at potentially watching my favorite actors realize their own mortality. Strangely enough, this is where the film is at its best. Whether its watching these guys tear up at the site of the granddaughters, or just busting each other over the smallest of things, I felt like I was watching them go through real-life issues. It sounds silly, especially considering they're all doing just fine financially in real life, but I felt really bad for these guys.
However, as expected, this movie is just plain ridiculous. The believability is off the charts and the writing is not good, to say the least. I like Theodore Melfi a lot, actually. St. Vincent is one of my favorite films of all time and Hidden Figures is gold, but I can't get behind his work here. I'm not sure whether it was a choice of some of the supporting actors, Braff's call, or in Melfi's script, but there's some really dumb stuff in this film.
As a whole, I had fun with Going in Style. It's far from perfect, and it can even be cringe worthy at times, but the emotions I got from seeing three actors you love truly sink their teeth into real- life problems of mortality was enough for me.
+Actors having a blast
+Well put together goofy heist film
-But sometimes it's a little too goofy
So here's the thing: if you told me, out of the blue, with no contextwhatsoever, that there was a heist flick with Michael Caine, MorganFreeman, Alan Arkin and Ann-Margaret (or you could have me at justCaine) where they plot to rob the Brooklyn bank that's screwed themover after a royal f***-over from their blue collar job, I'd say 'signme up!' That it would also be a comedy wouldn't be so bad an enticementeither; one might be reminded of something that could've starred thesesame actors from the 70's (ever seen The Hot Rock?) and spiked withsome relevant social issues. Matter of fact, as I only recentlylearned, this is a *remake* of a movie from the 70's (whether it hadthe same horrible-bank horrible-company thing I'm sure I don't know).
The problem is it's now 2017 and their age can't be taken out of thetext of the film - this is the Grumpy Old Men or even The Bucket Listof NYC heist movies - and the director Zach Braff is a hack. Sorry,but... no, I'm not sorry to type that. While I haven't Wish I Was Here,Garden State is not simply in retrospect but what I knew at the time tobe an unconvincing and cloying indie that had some decent acting and(not mutually exclusive) some highly self-conscious directorial movesand writing that... well, it didn't date well then much less now.
I don't mean to beat up on Braff's film - good for him for making amovie, it wasn't a crime or anything - except to point to how in histhird film out he has moved up to now making an unconvincing andtypical and safe middle-brow comedy. It's not that the trailer evenshowed anything like an edge, but... damn, he could've tried, not tomention some twists and reveals near the end that made me groan so loudI got looks from some of the AARP folks in the theater. Oh, and thesocial issues are dealt kind of up front and we only sort of see theconsequences/ramifications of what this does to people (it's closer tothe depth of something like Tower Heist in that way).
And yet I have an admiration for this movie getting to see these facesand, at the least, Braff doesn't get too much in the way of Caine andFreeman and Arkin to do what they can with Melfi's also safe script.They work well together and I found myself laughing more than Iexpected from if not all of the dialog (though there's one or twoclever moments from Melfi) then from how they deliver it. There'slifetimes of experience and knowledge and depths of pathos from theseactors, even with Arkin who always seems to be Cranky-Ass Arkin (butthis is likely an act, so to simply be this personality so convincinglyis impressive), and they play off with as much comedy as they can getfrom the supporting cast like Christopher Lloyd as a dementia-ishKnights of Columbus fellow and Ann Margaret as Arkin's would-be loveinterest.
The heist itself is shown in broad strokes and we can buy it because,um, movie. I was fine with most of it, up until it strains credulitythough this is largely when the alibis have to come out and all of theloose ends come together (and even here I could believe it, at least inthe predictable-safe world its set in). Maybe my critical standards aregetting rusty and I should harsher on this, not the least because itfeatures a set-up involving a botched preparatory theft of...ingredients for Chicken Cordon-Bleu from a small super-market that ispaid off in a way that makes less sense than it should. I wanted it todo a little more, but what it gave me was fine - I may just be a suckerfor this cast and that, for what morsels they're given, they do as muchand then some with it. It's an excellent Laundromat Movie: if it cameon while I was doing/waiting for my laundry, I'd be highly satisfied.
In a theater.... ehhh... Extra points too for Matt Dillon as anon-plussed cop and a humorous Keenan Thompson as the security hack atthe super-market.
