Michael Caine is one of my favorite actors and his latest movie, Going In Style, is a fun movie to see. Especially, if you are, as they say in Spanish speaking countries, of the 3rd Generation! Three fellows who are terrific actors decide to rob a bank. I found the movie to be funny and found myself laughing in many parts. Aside from hilarious moments, there were tender moments also. Romance enters into the story and love is around every corner between grandfathers and granddaughters. I liked the tight friendship that the three men had and how they reacted toward each other.
All three major actors are academy award winners. Michael Caine for his two Oscars; The Cider House Rules and Hannah and her Sisters. Morgan Freeman for Million Dollar Baby and Alan Arkin for Little Miss Sunshine. How could a movie not be good with three great actors plus Ann Margaret, Christopher Lloyd and Matt Dillon thrown into the mix?
I found myself feeling a bit sad that we were all old and wondered if young people would enjoy the movie. There were many parts that I could identify with, like when Michael Caine tries to get out of a chair or when Alan Arkin tries to run.
Since most of my friends are older, I recommend this movie to them. I do believe they would get a big kick out of this clever movie. As I left the theater, along with many other senior citizens, all the remarks about the movie were great!
