ABOUT

“You’re never too old to get even.”

A remake of the 1979 comedy of the same name.  Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, lifelong pals Willie (Morgan Freeman), Joe (Michael Caine) and Albert (Alan Arkin) risk it all by embarking on a daring bid to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money.

REVIEWS

Call it the old-dudes-acting-up genre. It’s always good for a pleasant, non-taxing romp, and that’s precisely what the caper film Going in Style delivers. . . 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.”  New York Times

The geezer humor is just as funny here as it was in the original version of this film, which starred George Burns, Art Carney, and Lee Strasberg. I mean this as a compliment, although it’s, admittedly, a bit backhanded. Theodore Melfi updates Martin Brest’s 1979 screenplay, but the details of the story and how it’s told are not nearly as interesting as watching (in both instances) three consummate actors bouncing off one another and delighting in the interplay. Go for the actors, stay for the popcorn and the sight of Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and Alan Arkin allowed free range to do their thing.”  Austin Chronicle
