Going in Style (2017) is directed by Zach Braff and written by Theodore Melfi. Stars-Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Alan Arkin, Matt Dillion, Christopher Lloyd, Joey King, and Ann-Margaret. Premise-After losing their pensions because of “generic Evil Corporation #9001,” three retirees decide to rob a bank to get their money back.
Apparently this movie is a remake of the 1979 Martin Brest film of the same name. Whatever. Either way, this movie is underwhelming. Allow me to weep for the crappy few weeks we’ve had in film. At this point, all I can hope for is entertainment without the stupidity or half-heartedness (this is why I chose Going in Style to review). The actors know they aren’t winning any Oscars for this movie, but at the very least they could provide some decent humor. Alright, alright. Let’s get down to business.
