During The Great Depression, famous outlaws or bank robbers are given celebrity or cult hero status because they have Robin Hood routines in their operation. The story of Going In Style is about three elderly men played by award-winning actors Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin as they resolve their solution by robbing a bank.
What made this comedy unique is that the protagonists are all elderly and they are out to do what is unexpected of them. They can do slapstick comedy but not like the Three Stooges would do. But there are also tender moments.
These three gentlemen have chemistry that I haven’t seen since Grumpy Old Men which also starred Ann Margret whom still got what it takes for a woman her age. I remember watching an old movie Bye Bye Birdie with the young Ann Margret. It was released before I was born and I was watching it in a TV station that shows these kinds of movies.
This is truly a movie worth watching and you don’t have to wait for it to be premiered on local television dubbed in Tagalog because the story is so simple that even a kid in elementary school can understand.
