GO­ING IN STYLE (CERT 12, 96 MINS)

Evening Times - - TIMES OUT -

Joe (Michael Caine), Wil­lie (Mor­gan Free­man) and Al­bert (Alan Arkin) are life­long friends, who are mel­low­ing in re­tire­ment. Dur­ing a meet­ing be­tween Joe and his un­sym­pa­thetic bank man­ager (Josh Pais), three masked men with guns walk into the branch and con­fi­dently steal 1.6 mil­lion US dol­lars (£1.2m). Soon af­ter, the bud­dies’ old em­ployer an­nounces it is freez­ing com­pany pen­sions. Joe is apoplec­tic - with­out the money, he will lose his home - and de­cides to rob the Wil­liams­burg Sav­ings Bank, which is man­ag­ing the liq­ui­da­tion of the pen­sion fund. A dry run at a lo­cal su­per­mar­ket ends in hu­mil­i­a­tion and Joe re­cruits a crim­i­nal lowlife (John Or­tiz) to pull off the lu­di­crous scheme. Go­ing In Style is a warm-hearted re­make of the 1979 com­edy star­ring Ge­orge Burns, Art Bur­ney and Lee Stras­berg.
