The Press Reviews

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

  • 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. Full Review

  • 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. Full Review

  • "Going in Style" never gets beyond mildly amusing. If anything, it uses its gifted veterans to disguise how tired, implausible and overly sentimental the proceedings turn out to be. Full Review

  • It revolves around a bank heist, but the real crime in Going in Style is its waste of acting talent. Full Review

  • A slick, no-surprises studio comedy that doesn’t make the most of its solid premise and star trio. Full Review

  • 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. Full Review
