Going in Style (2017)

These action comedies about old people robbing banks and making fools out of themselves while they're at it... they're usually pretty depressing.

And so was this one. Though mainly because of the old age theme - not so much because of the foolery. That bit comes in moderate doses. They're definitely old, they definitely have their downs, but in the end... it's handled with style.

And they have all the reasons in the world to get that money! Righteous reasons. At the end you wonder if anyone wasn't at least a little suspicious when they all managed to turn their lives around, keep their houses and half their kidneys and even get a dog? Loose end.

It's not flawless but... it was a good session of fun and depression both. Well-filmed. Well-planed. Michael Caine, Alan Arkin and Morgan Freeman never disappoint either! Michael is the oldest in the group by a few years, and Morgan Freeman the youngest, though they're all over 80 y/o at this point! It's almost like they get better the older they get.

Also: pretty entertaining cameo with Christopher Lloyd! He's actually younger than all the aforementioned three. Age is a funny thing, huh.

This movie might have the oldest cast in a old-guys-rob-a-bank movie yet, and they're still all going strong. Forget depressing - that's pretty inspiring.

 rated 3/5: not bad
