Mediocre viewing - Going in Style review by SB

Spoiler Alert

Despite being some great actors found this film very mediocre. The acting wasn't great and the storyline predictable and boring. Felt it was similar to other movies with older guys going on adventures but not as well done - wouldn't recommend.

Good Entertainment - Going in Style review by DH

Spoiler Alert

Better than I expected to be honest. OK, it's a bit lightweight, and the plot's a bit silly, but it's well made, Michael Caine is good, and it's overall a feelgood film.

Sometimes funny, total hokum heist story, full of plot holes in contrived plot, but great actors too - Going in Style review by PV

Spoiler Alert

Well always a pleasure to see great old actors still working - especially male ones in this #metoo manhating age. Though sadly, that has infected even this movie, with 2 or the 3 old men having daughters with one grand daughter (one should have been a son at least!).

Some laugh-out-loud lines in this though, occasionally.

Kirk Douglas and Burt Reynolds (I think) did a similar old men fight back film in the 80s/90s. There have been a few.

Some massive plot holes. The FBI here seem not to know how to access mobile phone records, and DNA testing (first done in England in 1986) doesn't seem to have reached Brooklyn yet! The idea 3 old men could rob a bank like that is absurd anyway - there is SUCH security now that shutters would fall at the first sign of a robbery, plus ink spray on notes which all have individual serial numbers as new notes (so couldn't be even given away).

All very silly and unrealistic - a total wish fulfillment fantasy, getting back at the banks for the financial crisis.

SO maybe watch this together with the great drama about the 2008 crash MARGIN CALL, or other similar movies showing the more serious side of repossession and mortgages given by banks up till 2008.

This is all good fun, a contrived comedy with no serious injury of bad things - a fluffy cuddly Friday night popcorn movie.

So 3 stars.
