A snippet of my #MovieReview of #GoingInStyle: "First they try to shoplift a convenience store, which is actually quite a hoot to watch. Alas, their first baby step fails pretty miserably. Some extra preplanning is needed by an experienced professional, who coincidentally happens to be a #Mexican named #Jesus. Yes, I know: 'Wow. A professional #MexicanTerrorist in #NewYorkCity—exactly what our country could benefit from!' Seriously, such a casting decision in light of recent events is morally irresponsible.
Anyways, on they go into a month-long setup for the big day, a situation open to numerous narrative possibilities worth over four minutes of montage, even though it winds up doing just that. Too bad for us, as their plan deserves a much deeper exploration into the meticulous detail; but what we are shown still looks well thought out against the unkind legal system. While the #police force’s functionality may defy believability here and there, you’ll overall buy into their wild adventure against the law.
Then the mission’s stakes continue to get higher as they don '#RatPack' costumes at the official heist. Awesomeness lands in these three #old men’s endeavors of the little time they have left, especially when considering the individual conflicts each of them faces. Yet when the whole scene finally comes up, it does not last as long as desired.
Thankfully though, the attempted bond between the three leads should guarantee an impact, both with one another and their outside families. I say 'attempted' because none of the performances by any of the cast delivers any genuine sorrow for the quiet moments. All players here fall along the lines of poor, below average, or somewhere in the middle. #ChristopherLloyd gives the only good performance as the old loon who runs the men’s #elderly community, even though his dialogue suggests nothing beyond weak comic relief." #MichaelCaine #MorganFreeman #AlanArkin #FunnyMovies #CrimeMovies #Comedies #FilmCritic #BankHeistMovie #BankRobbery #OldPeople #SeniorCitizen #OscarWinners #Gold #WarnerBros
