Three kindly old men, indistinguishable from the half-forgotten ranks of senior citizens you might pass on any city park bench in warm weather, decide to light up the dimming twilight of their lives with a last blaze of glory - by sticking up a Manhattan bank in broad daylight. A very distinguished, not to mention award-winning star trio - George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg - generates just the right charm, crust and comedy as the not-yet over-the-hill desperadoes in this slyly funny and unexpectedly moving feature film directorial debut of Martin Brest (Beverly Hills Cop, Scent of a Woman). For lump-in-your-throat laughter Going in Style is an entertainment steal.
