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!
Comedy Crime - Fans of the three leads will definitely enjoy this light caper
comedy, which is aimed at older adults. Language and some suggestive
humor and situations make the film not for young kids.

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average Going in Style is just as much a demographic-oriented product as any superhero or robot sci-fi movie. It's all about marketing with little concern for whether the core film is any good. This is at best made-for-TV quality with stars too big to allow it to go directly where it belongs.
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average ...its stars are such pros, they're so enormously charismatic and have such lovely chemistry with each other, it's hard not to be charmed by their mere presence on screen. ...the script is more of a crowd-pleaser—which makes sense, given that it comes from "Hidden Figures” co-writer/director Theodore Melfi—both in its characters' likability and in their purpose.
NY PostFull Review Average Despite the considerable charms and chemistry of Arkin, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman, this reboot of the 1979 George Burns comedy is as creaky as its would-be bank robbers' joints. The comedy also waters down its humor for the widest possible (read: not R-rated) audience, depriving its leads of some punchier fun.
Rolling StoneFull Review Average If you want to hang with a trio of old-coot charmers, you could do worse than Going in Style, a comic softball that, for the price of a movie ticket, puts you in the pleasurable company of Morgan Freeman, 79, Alan Arkin, 83, and Michael Caine, 84. The movie is no bargain, but the actors keep delivering dividends.
