Pacino, Walken, and Arkin were great together in this flick. It is by no means a masterpiece but it kept the audience involved and had a great plot. There is not much violence, but it is the story that captivates you. What would you do if you were in jail for 28 years and you finally were let out? Friends will stick together by all means. Go check it out. Great actors

I love all 3 of the actors in this movie, but found the script to be very broing & thoughtless. Everytime a line came up where we thought the movie was going to pick up turned out to be the only good line in the scene. Stop writing these pathetic roles for older actors...they are still better than all of the actors (most of which are just pretty boy celebrities that have no talent) of today & are still able to carry a good script...they dont need these token roles to keep them going. It was the most boring...seemed like 5 hours of my life.

I am a fan of both Pacino and Walken found the movie slow going but entertaining the ending was unexpected and left me thinking "Stand Up Guys TWO"?

Watching Arkin and Walken reminds you what real actors are like. And Pacino actually tried to not just play "Pacino" for a change. Plus it's great to watch a film that shows the back side of being a "gangster." Very enjoyable.

I expected a movie that was predictable and cliched but this movie was really well done. Like an indie movie with great characters, great acting, quirky story, There were some really touching moments and an unapologetic look at aging. It was hilarious and dramatic. Loved it. Would watch it again.
