    Going in Style

    ★★★½

    A pleasant watch, funny at times, great chemistry amongst the leads, and competently made. Some moments of actual tension, a fair dose of cartoon behavior but nothing that breaks the reality built. Has a handful of dangling cards that could easily topple the house if pulled, but why do that to such light hearted fair. I'd watch a sequel just to spend time with the characters.

    This is film is perfection. Every line, every gag, every camera move, every piece of casting. I can't wait to watch it again. Perfection.

    ★★★★

    This film is a text book, bottle thriller. The tension and plot development mostly occurs at one location around a single room. Fantastic character definition and narrative movement. Also, excellent use of keeping the audience guessing as to what will happen next and how each character plays into the plot.

    Beyond that it is also one of the most attainable features you could possibly watch as an upstart filmmaker. The writing and direction is spot on and the cinematography never gets pushed into impossible. Loved it.

    ★★½

    Interesting meditation and deconstruction but the dialogue-to-action ratio is horribly askew. And when there is movement in the narrative it is poorly conceived and boring.
