    You can see the great movie that could've been when watching Going in Style, Zach Braff's take on golden oldies getting up to no good but unfortunately the great movie eludes Braff and his team of beloved Hollywood veterans in a film that never achieves great laughs nor great heist heights.

    Enlisting an enviable trio in the form of Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin, Braff struggles to bring life to this rather ho-hum story of a group of aging factory workers who are all starring down the barrel of debt and financial heartache after their pensions have been revoked with the trio deciding there's no better way to answer their money needs than by robbing a bank.

    It's a simplistic set-up in a lot of ways but one that could provide a lot of cheap yet hearty laughs but Braff who wowed many a critic around the world with his directional debut Garden State, continues on with his mediocre stretch that included his last passion project Wish I Was Here and fails to mine any solid comedic gold from his capable cast and potentially rip-roaring pensioner lead heist.

    Centred around Caine's good hearted Joe and his two best friends/roommates in the form of Freeman's Willie and Arkin's cantankerous Albert, Style does allow these three ageing acting heavyweights time to showcase their charisma together but you feel like a lot of laughs are missed due to some fairly pedestrian writing and plotting that never meets the stars at their level.

    Some rather easy laughs are bought to proceedings like the 3 old-timers gathered around the TV watching a Batchelor finale or enjoying each other's company at their favourite 24hr diner but a lot of larger scale jokes fall flat and while the heist does liven up proceedings slightly once it hits, the lead up and planning stage of it will have many napping like a nanna on the couch.

    Final Say –

    No matter how bad things threaten to get there's a joy getting to watch three esteemed actors enjoy themselves on screen but the material in Going in Style is not worthy of the actors reputation. Blowing a potential old-school comedy classic on an easy to digest crowd pleaser that will be forgotten before too long, this is another misguided Zach Braff outing that makes you wonder if Garden State was but a flash in the pan.

    Let's hope not, for a long time. While it's not a perfect movie, the 3 leads are so charismatic, they carry anything the movie throws at them. Some things may bit coincidental and may feel too convenient, but again you won't be thinking about that while watching the movie. You know a couple of things just by watching the movie and you can almost guess the "twists" entirely.

    That still doesn't take away too much of the fun you can have while watching it. Dialog is nice and they play into the generation thing (social media, wordplay and of course limitations of age). But all in a really respectful way and yet still funny. If you like to have a good old time (no pun intended), you could do worse

    A large part of the enjoyment of this movie comes from the fact that these three actors are in this movie. You will not find anything special in this movie, just a fun action movie that is slightly above in terms of quality.

    The positives of this movie include the performances from the three main actors. While sometimes feeling cheesy, they are still done very well. Also the general idea of the film is quite funny.

    The negatives of this movie mainly revolve around the fact that there is nothing you haven't seen before in these types of movies. Also I don't believe the script brings out the maximum amounts of laughs that you could in this movie. The Bucket List and Last Vegas already made the jokes about old people being old and seemed like the go to joke in this movie.

    Overall, I didn't mind this movie, it was a fun watch. While not a great "film" and not bringing anything new artistically, it watch a fun watch and a great movie that you don't take too seriously. People who enjoy movies that way will like this.

    This was a remake of the 1979 film of the same name. I haven't seen that, but I enjoyed this version. I did not say I liked, but very entertaining. From 'Grandma Gangster' to 'Stand Up Guys', there you could find a few more that all these films have commonalities. The old fellows try to do something out of their age and strength can cope. So, for fun, this film will do just fine.

    The poster says it all, but the film reveals much detail, like with small twist and turns. Three lifelong friends suddenly feeling the heat after their pensions got messed up. Apart from that, serious health condition and other financial struggle force them to rob a bank. The film is going to tell us their preparations for the action and post heist developments with some close encounters.

    No one particular, but all the three veteran actors were good. Good to see them in such energetic film, other than supporting roles in other big flicks. Zack Braff too was good at his direction. I did not like that much his previous feature film. This is a commercial film, but well done. He says it is a reboot, not a remake. And seeing decent success, there could be a sequel. Simply watch it and have fun, but don't analyse deeply, which might only disappoint you.

    6.5/10
