‘Going In Style’ Is full of clever, side splitting comedy
I am a fan of good comedy movies. When the have the right cast, a good story and well thought out jokes they can be very good. Lately too many comedies go for the zany jokes that more often than not fall flat. Thankfully Going In Style is not that type of comedy. I was able to see it early and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for Going In Style here:
Lifelong buddies Willie (Morgan Freeman), Joe (Michael Caine) and Albert (Alan Arkin) decide to buck retirement and step off the straight-and-narrow when their pension funds become a corporate casualty. Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, the three men risk it all by embarking on a daring adventure to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money.
I had a lot of fun watching Going In Style. It has a strong plot, a good cast and a lot of really good jokes. The main characters are not perfect, but together they have a strong bond and seem to be able to accomplish anything. The film is full of a few surprises that I did not see coming which was a good thing. There were a couple of scenes where the audience thinks one thing is going to happen, but right before their eyes the tone changes, many times for the better.

Going In Style gets 8.5/10. It wasn’t the best comedy I have ever seen, but it was still quite good. The film is not perfect, but most people will really like it. It has a few adults situations, but nothing too extreme. If you are a fan of any of these actors, then this is a film you need to see.
