There are few greater pleasures than watching old pros at work, especially in a film that's worthy of them. In this smart and hugely likeable little comedy drama, Al Pacino and Christopher Walken play best buddies and former partners in crime. Fresh from a 28-year prison stretch, Pacino spends his first night of freedom schmoozing with Walken, nostalgically trawling old haunts in a
-like cityscape. But there's a hidden agenda: one of them has been pressured into killing the other to settle an old gangland grudge. Pacino and Walken have rarely been better. Nor has Alan Arkin in a pivotal role as the duo's ageing former getaway driver. From start to finish,
Stand Up Guys
is a pure joy, a film that will linger in the memory long after bigger, more bloated blockbusters have been and gone, and are long forgotten. Sheer class.
An ageing gangster is released from prison after 28 years, and is reunited with his two partners in crime. They set out to recapture their glory days with one last burst of criminal activity, but one of the trio is under pressure from a Mob boss and has a dangerous secret that threatens them all. Crime comedy, starring Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin.
