Brilliant cast and superb writing about three old-timer gangsters who still have their values. Pacino Walken and Arkin are sensational in this drama that goes from bitersweet comedy to violence to philosphy for life. Totally enjoyable--will probably become one of those littale talked about classics.

I love all the actors in the movie. I do. but these guys bless their heart could barely walk around in each scene. NO, no no, no..you go see it and you will realize you donated your money to them. sitting in the theater, its a tough decision to finish the movie or get up and leave

Al Pacino and Christopher Walken ,either few minutes of Alan Arkin was great they are THE ACTORS , Pacino reminds me great Jean Gabin !!! Not Hollywood money maker movie, but excellent piece !!!!!

This is a good movie for everyone; but a great film for us baby boomers. Pacino's and Walken's performance's are wonderful. The film has a great storyline consisting of love, caring and fond memories that we have as we grow older. I found that the friendship aspect of the film being so true to our real lives. For all of us baby boomers the soundtrack is fantastic. I think the 35 and under crowd will enjoy this film as well; but they might not truly appreciate the loyalty and friendship of it to the fullest. I enjoyed this film and I hope that you give it a look too. It's worth your time and money.

This is not a great film. Some parts that are meant to be humorous were milked too long and it became tedious, like Val's attempt to overcome his "performance problems" early in the picture. In addition, there is a lot that is derivative from older movies. For example, the camaraderie between two old gangsters that life has passed by, see "Tough Guys" with Lancaster and Douglas. For the final scene of the film, see Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, with Newman and Redford. That being said, watching Pacino and Walton work is an acting lesson all by itself, and it looked like they enjoyed playing off each other. Would I add the DVD to my collection? Probably not. Did I enjoy the hour and a half watching it in the theater? Yes, definitely.
