Veteran hunters are back for a heist operation, and this is how we can define the story of "Going in Style" in a single sentence. Starring Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Alan Arkin and Joey King in the lead roles, the film was released on April 07, 2017 all across the United States and Canada. This film is the remake of the 1979 movie of the same name, and it revolves around the life of three veterans who rob a bank to get back the amount they deserve from their ex-employer.

The film is directed by Zach Braff who has previously made the acclaimed movie, "Wish I was Here".

Just like his previous movie, this outing too is loaded with intense emotions of the lead stars, and with adequate elements of thrill, the director has reportedly delivered a classy entertainer.

But in some scenes, he failed to reprise the magic of its original, and it may not go well with the fans of the predecessor. Some humorous scenes are impressive, but in many sequences, the emotions go over the board.

Weak screenplay, powerful performance from the lead actors

Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin are three wonderful performers in contemporary cinema.

The director had a golden chance to reap the best from these actors, but Zach literally missed an opportunity to extract the maximum out of these stars with a lackluster screenplay. There are many loopholes in the flick, and most of the events iare predictable.

Box-office prediction

As this film locks horns with "Smurfs: The Lost Village", the box-office collections will not be that great in the opening weekend. The movie had its release in around 3000 centers in the US, and Canada, it is expected to collect around $8 million in its first weekend.

On an opening day, the film grossed $4.3 million.

The reviews surrounding this movie are mixed to negative, and by the end of the second weekend, "Going in Style" may say Adios to almost all the release centers.

Final Verdict

"Going in Style" is tailor-made for heist movie fans, but if you are the one who is looking for some genuine film viewing experience, then its better to stay away.

On Rotten Tomatoes, the movie has an approval rating of 51% based on 103 reviews, with an average rating of 5.4 out of 10. On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating, the film has a score 55 out of 100, based on 34 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews."
