A Genuinely Good Film, Well Written, Very Well Executed.
With a cast like this, does anyone really expect a bad flick? Critics maybe, but what do they know? When I pay to see a film, it's because I want to be entertained and leave my worries at the door. In other words, I want to be pleasantly distracted and that's just exactly what this film delivers. There are no super heroes, or fancy special effects, or even big budget stunts, sans one great car chase. What this movie has instead, first and foremost is a lot of heart. It also has epic A-list talent and a good story, an even better screenplay and just the right technical talent (direction and photography) to produce just what it is: An A-list movie. While this film's not getting a lot of buzz and the naysayers are complaining about the age of the cast etc. Guess what ladies and gents? If you live long enough, you're going to get old too and know what? You can only hope to be as good in old age as the like of Stallone or Pacino. As for this movie, see it. You won't be disappointed.
