When I saw that this movie was being released with this legendary cast, I was sure that it was going to be a blast. However, as reviews were coming out, the conclusion was that this was pretty much a mixed bag ... Well, I have to disagree with most critics because I do think this movie is super entertaining and that the critics are over-analyzing this great piece of art.

This is the type of movie where the cast plays a huge role. All of them, without a single exception, show how amazing they can be. Morgan Freeman is very compelling, Michael Caine is super captivating and Alan Arkin is the funniest of them all. Their characters are extremely well-developed, everyone gets a reason behind the decision of taking revenge against their bank and that elevates the film when the "action" is going down because I care so much about them.

The supporting cast is also amazing and they can't be forgotten: Ann-Margret remarkably plays Annie, a very funny waitress, Christopher Lloyd hilariously plays Milton, a crazy old man, and Joey King (Brooklyn) is compelling as Freeman's granddaughter. The chemistry of all cast is palpable and that alone deserves to be praised.

The plot is simple, there are some chuckles along the way and it's mostly fast-paced. The soundtrack is the surprise of the film for me, it's really cool and I honestly can't stop listening to it right now. Really good!

I don't want to say that this movie has flaws because this film wasn't created for someone to analyze every single detail and point out everything that is wrong with it. It's a family-friendly movie to watch at home on a Sunday afternoon when you just want to be entertained for an hour and a half.

From the very first scene together, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin prove how much the cast's chemistry is important to a film. This film isn't incredibly funny, it isn't nothing that I haven't seen before, it follows every cliché that one would expect and it even drags a little bit midway through ... That doesn't mean I can't have fun and be entertained by some very well-developed characters portrayed by three unbelievable legends. The supporting characters are also great, the soundtrack is pretty cool, the film is mostly fast-paced and the humor is more than enough to satisfy me. It's just a good movie!
