Great Cast/Great Fun

Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin are pitch perfect in their roles as washed-up bad guys on their last legs. The deadpan humor was hilarious with a touch of pathos for the situation they find themselves in. The ending (you have to see it) is perfect.

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.

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

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.
