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.

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!

ELDERLY JUVENILES

It was OK. Wouldn't recommend it to any of the people I know. Only one or two good moments; the rest, juvenile humor. One hard-on too many.

A Genuinely Good Film, Well Written, Very Well Executed.

By Alon Patterson

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.

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!
