About the Movie
Val (Al Pacino) is released from prison after serving twenty-eight years for refusing to give up one of his close criminal associates. His best friend Doc (Christopher Walken) is there to pick him up, and the two soon re-team with another old pal, Hirsch (Alan Arkin). Their bond is as strong as ever and despite their age, their capacity for mayhem is still very much alive. Bullets fly as they make a hilariously valiant effort to compensate for the decades of crime, drugs and sex they've missed.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Some actors don't need top-shelf material. Just the pleasure of their company is enough. And so Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin turn the insubstantial Stand Up Guys into solid entertainment.
Rotten: There is a sense that everyone, this treasure trove of talent included, is waiting for something to happen, some bit of alchemy that will make the story coalesce into a whole and take it beyond the jokes about Viagra, hookers and regrets.
Rotten: It's been a long time since a movie wasted as much talent as Stand Up Guys, a film that aims to be a geezer Goodfellas but whose execution is a misfire.
Rotten: Actor-turned-director Fisher Stevens gravely misjudges the tone - when he isn't trying to get too cute about everything, he slathers his characters in unearned sentimentality.
Kinda like a crime version of RED but so much better
Great message, live is too short...

Wonderful requiem for old men
Underneath is the essential end of life spirit of values, honour and purpose.
