Stand Up Guys

Really enjoyed the movie. It was nice to go to a movie that wasn't high tech special effect overkill. There was actually a story to this movie that you understood almost immediately. Pacino and Walken have a chemistry that makes it believable and you find yourself liking their characters. The actress that played the waitress (Addison Timlin) seals the deal with her genuine likability and heartfelt smile. Tremendous acting throughout (no Pacino over-acting) Not sure why the critics are so harsh on this one because if you want to see a good movie without over theatrical over-hyped stunts, this is a definite see!

I enjoyed this movie and the characters. had a good story, and decent action, and even a little comedy. The critics must of seen a different movie. Sure it wasn't great, but it was worth it.

These guys feed off each other quite well. Pacino as the ex-con who knows he is going to get clipped and Walken as the only friend he has. Story moves good, the repribution scene for the lady who was attacked...was classic. This felt like an indie film....much like 7 Psychopaths. Alan Arkin is great also..in his limited screen tme.

Destined to be a classic...

This movie has the same feel as a Quentin Tarantino film. When you put Pacino and Walken together on screen the result in this movie is magic. Alan Arken's arrival is when the movie peaks -- and the story is not the star, but rather the stars in this movie shine. Pacino was awesome. Walken was spooky odd and strange as usual. The moral of this movie is don't take more than 1 viagra :-) Will definitely buy the BluRay too. Go.

Just incase you didn't know - Fisher who directed this has an Oscar in his pocket for The Cove, a beautiful documentary. This has a stellar cast - give it a shot, it's worth it just to see them together playing!
