Maybe 2 1/2 out of 5 stars. Definitely not as good as it could've been. Kind of reminded me of a bad talent bomb indie movies that Miramax would've put out in the mid-90s. The performances are fun enough even if the story isn't entirely there. The mob retelling of The Last Detail description I read here isn't unfair at all.
This is supposedly some kind of decadent gangster/dark comedy, but while the funny moments are not so funny (poorly written dialogues, wrong timing, the few actual kick-ass scenes are highly predictable), the constant feeling of death is so overwhelming and greatly portrayed by these 3 giant actors belonging to a disappearing generarion that you'll eventually leave the cinema feeling awkwardly sad and a bit lonlier.
This was a very unremarkable film I only saw because a friend wanted to see it, so I came along. It's very meh and occasionally funny. I really don't have much more to say about it other than that because it is, again, very unmemorable.
Not the best film but I enjoyed watching it just to see Pacino, Walken and Arkin acting their age and hanging out together. Everything goes about where you expect it to, so don't expect surprises. There are some cool moments and the Arkin section was the most enjoyable. If you're a fan of those three guys you might like it, but otherwise probably not much there for you.
Considering the deader than dead 'gangster buddy' genre, this was a pleasant surprise. The direction keeps things moving at a steady, lighthearted pace and Pacino and Walken haven't been this much fun to watch in ages.
Un trío de viejos cacos se reúne, luego de que uno de ellos sale de la cárcel, sólo para enterarse de que su mejor amigo tiene el encargo de matarlo. Aunque tiene momentos inverosímiles, la película tiene algunos también divertidos, incluyendo corazón, y un lado emocional que te toma desprevenido. Además, es irresistible ver a tres gigantes del cine demostrando que aún tienen energía de sobra.
