Film Review: Going In Style (USA, 2017) Doesn’t Quite Land, Even If It Looks Good

April 19, 2017

In some ways, it feels like Zach Braff’s involvement with Going In Style is the most interesting thing about it.

The story is a slow character study that is lacking in characterisation, drama and detail. The story is directed by Kelly […]
