Going in Style is a 2017 American heist comedy film directed by Zach Braff and written by Theodore Melfi. A remake of the 1979 film of the same name, it stars Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Alan Arkin, Joey King, Matt Dillon, Christopher Lloyd and Ann-Margret, and follows a trio of retirees who plan to rob a bank after their pensions are cancelled.
Oscar winners Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”), Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules,” “Hannah and Her Sisters”) and Alan Arkin (“Little Miss Sunshine”) team up as lifelong buddies Willie, Joe and Al, who decide to buck retirement and step off the straight-and-narrow for the first time in their lives when their pension fund becomes a corporate casualty, in director Zach Braff’s comedy “Going in Style.” Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, the three risk it all by embarking on a daring bid to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money.
The film premiered at the SVA Theatre on March 30, 2017 and was released in the United States on April 7, 2017. It received mixed reviews from critics and has grossed $70 million worldwide against its $25 million budget.
Joe, Willie, and Albert are senior citizens and lifelong friends. During an unpleasant appointment at the bank, Joe is one of the victims to witness a robbery in progress carried out by three individuals wearing black masks. During the robbery, he notices the leader bearing a Mongol warrior tattoo on his neck as the only lead that could help the police identify the culprit. However, the leader sympathizes with Joe when he finds out about his current financial situation brought up by the bank. Then, the robbers manage to escape with over $1.6 million.
When the company they worked for is bought out, their pensions become a casualty of the restructuring. Joe is hit particularly hard and finds out that he, his daughter, Rachel, and granddaughter, Brooklyn will be homeless in less than 30 days. Willie finds out he’s gravely ill from kidney failure and needs a transplant and is even more frustrated because his financial situation forces him into a long-distance relationship with his daughter and granddaughter. Desperate, the three friends decide to rob the bank that is going to restructure their pension funds and take back what is rightfully theirs.
Inspired by his experience of the robbery the other day, Joe originates the idea, at first Albert and Willie are appalled, but eventually agree when they later learn that their bank intends to steal their pensions. Trying to shoplift some items from a grocery store, where Al’s love interest, Annie works, results in a comic disaster and the trio turn to Joe’s former son-in-law, Murphy and a criminal working as a pet store owner named Jesus to teach them the ropes. They plan an alibi using their lodge’s carnival as a cover. They disguise themselves as members of “The Rat Pack” (Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis, Jr.) and use guns with blanks so that no one gets hurt. The robbery almost goes awry when Willie collapses briefly and a child witness partially pulls off his mask and she sees the wrist watch he wears with a picture of his granddaughter on it as he engages in a friendly conversation and sympathizes with her so as not to let her feel intimidated about the robbery in progress; however, the three manage to get away with over two million dollars. They are soon arrested on suspicion by FBI Agent Hamer after the manager from the grocery store recognizes Al’s walk from the video surveillance cameras, but they all stick to their alibis.
Hamer then puts them along with some other senior suspects into a Police lineup using the child witness who partially took off Willie’s mask, but she refuses to identify Willie; leaving Hamer with no case. Willie suffers total renal failure and is near death until Al agrees to donate a kidney. While part of the money is used to help the three friends with their financial situations, the rest is given to their families, friends, co-workers, and fellow members at the lodge. Joe finally gets his granddaughter a puppy he promised her if she got A’s in every subject at school; courtesy of Jesus, who is later revealed to be the leader of the robbers from the robbery Joe witnessed and has laundered the money that they stole. The movie ends at Al and Annie’s wedding as the three friends celebrate their good fortune.
A remake of the eponymous 1979 classic, Braff’s ‘Going in Style’ has three spectacular actors cast perfectly in the roles of retired fogies who plan a bank heist after their pension fund is dissolved. With the opportunity to do so much more, Braff unfortunately sticks to the predictable and familiar, making the 2017 remake a reel of clichés.
Braff gives his impressive cast characters that have very few layers. Joe (Caine) is a retired man with a heavy mortgage who is supporting his ..
