5.0 out of 5 stars Do not miss this 9 April 2013
By P. Waller VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
A thrilling film from start to finish. Possibly one of Al Pacino's best roles to date along with Christopher Walken and a cameo role with Alan Arkin. It is not a film to watch sat next to your local vicar. It is simply life as it possibly is in the USA to some degree. I have no intention of spoiling your entertainment by relating the story as some posters sadly do other than to say if you like one or all of the 3 actors then you will not be disappointed. It is simply a great film.

4.0 out of 5 stars A stand up film 26 April 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Al Pacino, whilst acting royalty, has on times turned out the odd turkey, but with this he's back on great form. The same can be said for Christopher Walken, but no one can say that when these guys are on the A game they are dynamite to watch.

And thus this hybrid of comedy, thriller, and drama is superb, if far fetched and unbelievable at times, simply based on the subtle performances from the two leads it breezes along with it's short run time.

The story is simple - Pacino is released from prison and picked up by his old gangster buddy Walken, and they embark on a crazy booze, drug fuelled night of mayhem, involving numerous quirky characters, hookers, car chases, lots of food (random but they do eat a lot in a short space of time in this film) more hookers, assaults, robbery and much too much to list.

The film plays like a swansong to these old legends, as they reminisce about the past and indulge in everything on screen that made them such acting legends in other films.

Though no where near the same in tone (this is far more violent and foul mouthed) it did remind me of the Jack Nicolson/Morgan Freeman movie The bucket list, in that you got too very old world weary characters just hanging out doing wild stuff as they know there time in life is coming to a wind down.

Sometimes sweet, sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but very memorable - a good watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ageing actors in a solid premise 18 Sep 2013
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Stand Up Guys (SUG) is the tale of Val (Al Pacino - Scarface) who, on his release after a 28-year stay in prison, is picked up by Doc (Christopher Walken - The Deer Hunter), an old-friend and work associate from back in the day. The two reminisce about old-times, the jobs they pulled and the women, juxtaposing their lives today. They look up the final member of their trio, ex-driver Hirsch (Alan Arkin - Argo) and decide to hit the town to live like the old-days. As things progress, it becomes clear that the past hasn't stayed the past as ageing mob-boss Claphands (Tio Salamanaca from Breaking Bad) still has a score to settle, can the boys hold their own like they used to? Time will tell...

Stand Up guys is a tale of ageing mobsters, full of retrospective introspection over their lives and the way they used to be. Pacino plays a brilliant character; Val, who no longer cares what the future holds for him after nearly 3 decades inside. His lust for life is commendable though as he really wants to experience things one last time, aided and supported by Doc in all manner of odd requests that bring about some really interesting scenes that allow this triumvirate of hugely capable actors to riff off of one another and let the acting flow. And it doesn't disappoint; SUG delivers ninety-five minutes of quality, even if it is a touch derivative. Pacino asking for a dance is pretty much a reshoot of the same scene in

3.0 out of 5 stars Strangely only average 7 Nov 2013
Format:DVD
Before I wrote this, I checked out some of the other reviews and, based on what I read, you're probably not going to agree with me. Apparently, from what I've seen, the majority of people who watched `Stand Up Guys' really enjoyed it.

I'm not saying that it wasn't an okay film, but, based on having two of the greatest actors in the leading roles, I thought it was going to be better than it was.

Christopher Walken plays a hitman who's charged with the task of `offing' Al Pacino who has been released from prison after 28 years. The only trouble is... they're friends and so Walken takes Pacino on one last night of hell-raising.

It's a good premise and it is at its best when it's sentimental. However, it was also billed as a `comedy' and I didn't find that much to laugh at (primary some smutty jokes about the problems elderly men have between the sheets and that's about it).

Pacino overacts and Walken underacts. And, no matter how great the actors are (and they are great!), the somewhat average script makes little more than an average movie.

I didn't hate it. It passed an hour and a half. It's just I was expecting better, but, like I say, there are a lot of very positive 4 and 5 star reviews, so what do I know?

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected gem 13 Nov 2013
Format:DVD
I got this because my wife and I both like the actors and we just wanted something to watch one evening. I'm not sure what we expected but what we got was:a funny film: a poignant film; some drama; good acting; a gangster film; a film about old age and dying.
The crucial thing is that the film is well written. The dialogue does not consist of continual swearing, which is half what I expected, but it crackles with wit and humour. One of the other reviewers who gave it five stars said you couldn't show this to your vicar - I think you could.
Just one of the best films I've seen recently.

They must have forgotten to write a script. Bad story, bad lines.
