A reboot of the 1979 movie that was directed by Martin Brest and featured George Burns, Art Carney, and Lee Strasberg. Three seniors, who are living social security check to check and even reduced to eating dog food at times, decide they have had enough. So, they plan to rob a bank...problem is, they don't even know how to handle a gun! A social commentary on growing old in America and what we are sometimes driven to, due to circumstances. Written by
Sir Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman had previously worked together on the Dark Knight trilogy. See more »
At the police identity parade the little girl deliberately fails to ID Morgan Freeman as one of the bank robbers. When she leaves the room, Freeman's daughter and granddaughter smile a thanks to the girl - but they could not have known the outcome as they weren't present at the parade. See more »
These banks practically destroyed this country. They crushed a lot of people's dreams, and nothing ever happened to them. We three old guys, we hit a bank. We get away with it, we retire in dignity. Worst comes to the worst, we get caught, we get a bed, three meals a day, and better health care than we got now.

Zach Braff, one of my favorite actors/Directors/ humans...loved every episode of Scrubs, loved movies Garden State, Wish I was here and now Going in Style. 3 friends Joe(Michael Caine), Willie( Morgan Freeman) and Albert (Alan Arkin) hang out together. Joe lives with daughter and granddaughter and Willie and Albert live together. All three have their share of money and health problems. The movie is about Joe's decision to rob a bank to end money problems and how little it takes to convince Willie that the idea is good. Albert the youngest of the 3 needs a lot of convincing to join the other two and get involved. Zach Braff focuses on simple minds and simple lives. Script is simple. Really liked the way Annabelle Chow as Lucy was important in the end and John Ortiz as Jesus who respects and follows Cult principles ended the movie. Nice direction. Glad I spend 1 hr 36 minutes with pleasant characters and good story/script. I look forward to some more good movies by Zach Braff.
