The unconventional but flawed comedy Going in Style mostly keeps our attention. Mostly.
Review by Matt CummingsThere's a trap in this business that many reviewers seem unable to avoid: they expect too much from movies, either in terms of story, characters, or other unrealistic forces. Not every movie needs to be an Oscar winner, nor does it have to be the best movie you've ever seen. Sometimes movies can merely entertain, like a light dessert that's instantly forgettable but still satisfying at the time. Such is the case with Going in Style, an unconventional comedy that spends way too much time building up its story, only to see it end exactly the way we predicted. Facebook.
