Going In Style Review

Good

This is only technically a remake of the iconic 1979 film starring movie icons George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg. While that film was a bittersweet comedy about old age, this one has a lot less on its mind. Instead, it goes for more populist joys like slapstick and smiley banter, all based on the A-list casting of present-day icons Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin. At least they give it some oomph.

It all starts when Joe (Caine) is notified by his bank that his mortgage is overdue, but this is only because they tripled the interest rate. And the situation becomes even more desperate when the company where he worked for 40 years is sold to a multinational, which liquidates the pension fund, leaving Joe and his pals Willie and Albert (Freeman and Arkin) in serious trouble. So Joe hatches a crazy scam to steal the money back from the bank, and Willie and Albert go along with it. They get advice from low-level criminal Jesus (John Ortiz) to work out the details. Meanwhile, Willie is undergoing treatment for kidney failure, and his age has left him far down the donor list. And Albert finally gives in to the flirtatious advances of amorous shop-clerk Annie (Ann-Margret).

There comes a point in life where you get to a certain age and realise that right and wrong no longer means anything. Being a law-abiding citizen sure doesn't guarantee you comfort or security, so when Willie (Morgan Freeman), Joe (Michael Caine) and Albert (Alan Arkin) find they have had their pension payments cut off, they really have nothing else to lose. When Joe visits the bank to have a meeting about his mortgage repayments, he witnesses a professional bank robbery and is so impressed by the organisation of it that he decides enough is enough; he wants to get in on that kind of action himself. So these three long-time buddies band together to pull off the ultimate theft of the bank that is systematically destroying the lives of hard-working citizens, get their money back and give the rest to charity.

Michael J. Fox And Christopher Lloyd Travelled To The Real 2015 On Jimmy Kimmel - And They Weren't Impressed [Video]


Michael J Fox Christopher Lloyd Jimmy Kimmel

Back To The Future Day was on Wednesday (October 21st 2015) but people are still celebrating the legacy of this era-defining movie and stars Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd even reunited as Marty McFly and Doc on the latest episode of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'. Needless to say, they were pretty disappointed with the real 2015.

Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Lea ThompsonMichael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson were re-united for the film's 30th anniversary

So we don't have hoverboards, flying cars or self-tying sneakers in 2015 as opposed to what 1989's 'Back To The Future II' would've had us believe, but it's still a common agreement that technology has advanced a tremendous amount in the last thirty years, right? Well, Marty and Doc don't think so. When their time-travelling DeLorean landed in the middle of Jimmy Kimmel's talk show last night (October 22nd 2015), they were amazed at just how little the world had changed.

Back to the Future Part III (1990) - Clips


When Dr. Emmett Brown gets trapped in a Western world in 1885, it's up to Marty to rescue him when he learns of his untimely death. It isn't long before he runs into Biff's ancestor Buford, however, who doesn't exactly make it easy for the pair to get home. Plus, the DeLorean is out of gas which means they can't accelerate to the required speed anyway to travel forward in time. They have an idea, though, involving the use of a rail spur and a train to push them to the right speed, but before they can implement the plan Buford attempts to force Marty into a duel. And after Doc has fallen in love with a beautiful 19th century lady named Clara and been subsequently dumped after revealing his true origin, he's not in the best of moods to help them finally get home either.

Back to the Future Part II (1989) - Clips


Marty McFly and Dr. Emmett Brown re-unite for more adventures, but this time Doc is looking to the future rather than the past. He encourages both Marty and his girlfriend Jennifer to accompany him to 2015 and help out their future children. However, things take a shaky turn when Marty decides to buy a sports almanac in a bid to get rich through betting. Unfortunately, their journey to the future has been witnessed by Biff, who manages to steal the almanac and give it to his 1955 self. When Marty and Doc return to a dystopian 1985 they most certainly don't recognise, they are forced to go back to the past to rectify the situation - and prevent Biff from ruining their futures.

Back to the Future (1985) - Clips


Marty McFly is an ordinary high school teenager, with a passion for music and a talent for skateboarding - not to mention a beautiful girlfriend named Jennifer. However, his parents have it less easy; his father George lacks confidence and so is easily bullied by his boss Biff, while his mother spends her days drowning her sorrows and getting seriously unhealthy. Soon Marty meets an ageing scientist named Doc, who has built a time-machine into a DeLorean. But when the pair run into some trouble, Marty is forced to escape in the vehicle and winds up in 1955 - the year his parents first got together, despite them being leagues apart. Now not only has Marty got to find the younger Doc to help him get Back To The Future, but he also has the task of uniting his parents so that he eventually gets born.
