A reboot of the 1979 movie that was directed by Martin Brest and featured George Burns, Art Carney, and Lee Strasberg. Three seniors, who are living social security check to check and even reduced to eating dog food at times, decide they have had enough. So, they plan to rob a bank...problem is, they don't even know how to handle a gun! A social commentary on growing old in America and what we are sometimes driven to, due to circumstances.Written by
Sir Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman had previously worked together in The Dark Knight trilogy, and the Now You See Me film franchise. The latter was a revenge-themed series. See more »
The guns are loaded with blanks during the robbery, yet a semi-automatic pistol like the ones used, will only fire once unless modified to fire blanks. A pistol of this type requires back pressure to work the action, and a blank produces none. See more »
The movie was the best thing, which could happen to me in sneak preview. I laughed so often, an wonderful story combined with great actors and Zach Braff, who made a great job to transform the old movie into todays background. I'd like to see more movies like this, than the stupid standard comedy from Hollywood. I recommend everyone to see this film and have great two hours. A quick summary: perfect chosen actor,s a bit predictable, but i liked it anyway, jokes,jokes,jokes... GO watch this film !
