Product description

Product Description

Old-timer gangster comedy starring Academy Award winners Al Pacino and Christopher Walken. Aging gangster Val (Pacino) is picked up by his old friend and partner Doc (Walken) as he is released from prison after serving a 28-year sentence for refusing to snitch on another associate. The two reflect on the times they've spent together before deciding to break their other partner (Alan Arkin) out of a retirement home to reunite the whole gang. In an attempt to relive their glory days they steal a car and wind up at a nearby brothel, but as time progresses they learn that one of them is holding a secret and there may be one last job on the cards...

The movie starts with echoes of Jake and Elwood as Christopher Walken’s Doc greets Al Pacino’s Valentine as he is released from prison, and similar to John Landis’ brilliant 1980s film The Blues Brothers this is a tale of loyalty and friendship. However, Doc and Val are not musicians but elderly gangsters facing the reality of their twilight years and having to make hard choices. This tale is also reminiscent of Tough Guys, the1980s movie starring Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas, but the writing lacks the quality and pathos of that screenplay. Although both Pacino and Walken appear to be having a whale of a time, especially when Alan Arkin makes his all too brief appearance, much of the jokes are lame and occasionally embarrassing (the erectile dysfunction and Viagra overdose incident springs to mind). Therefore, despite the hardy efforts of the three lead actors, for me this film was a massive disappointment.

Ex-wise guy Val (Pacino) is released from prison after 28 years for killing a Mafia Don's son. His old pal Doc (Walken) picks him up with the intention of whacking him within 24 hours due to pressure from the Don (Mark Margolis). However Val isn't going out without one last big night on the Town!

Overall Stand Up Guys is a gratifying film on various levels, mixing old school charm, subtle humor & a little playful smut to make it palatable enough to sit through. The majority of the film focuses on the characters with their family, friendship, regrets, ageing, reliving their past antics one last time & trying to put things right before they shuffle off this mortal coil. Which includes a lot of sitting, drinking, eating or sniffing pharmaceuticals in diners & clubs. Frequenting the local brothel, breaking into a pharmacy for viagra & handing out some old school justice. They're are a few pieces of excitement to keep you awake & break things up, as Doc's will he, won't he whack Val story line rumbles along underneath, keeping you kinda guessing, and it does briefly finish in a stylish fashion, albeit with one of those love/hate ambiguity endings.

The acting isn't the finest work from the trio, but more than amiable. Al Pacino (Scarface) is the lively, excitable risk taker & catalyst of the evenings events. Christopher Walken (The Deer Hunter) is well, Walken, laid back going with the flow as Val's piggy bank. Alan Arkin (

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.

By Rowena Hoseason HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on 20 Sept. 2013
Format: DVD
This is a superbly satisfying 'last hurrah' movie; a mature and intelligent take on what happens when old-school gangsters hit the final hurdle. Pacino and Walken are stunning together and turn in beautifully nuanced performances, dripping the ennui of old-age been-there, done-that...
...which is underpinned by rock solid, hardman, mobbed-up sensibilities worthy of any violent old lags who've survived a lifetime of violence on the streets and inside. Brilliant.

The set-up is simple: Pacino is released from prison after serving a 28-year stretch. He's been a stand-up guy all along, not grassing on his mates. His oldest friend - seemingly his only friend - Walken, meets him at the gates. They're awkward and uncertain. Walken's life has shrivelled. He lives in a cramped apartment (with cable TV, ooh). He paints. He tries to establish a relationship with his granddaughter. He's been out of the game for years, sidelined by the next generation, forced into obscurity. And now he's under orders to kill his friend by 10am the next morning: a final act of revenge from the current crime king of New York.
So begins one last night of revelry; utterly unsentimental, frequently bawdy without being crass (the inevitable Viagra scene is cripplingly funny), righteous, violent and rewarding as the pair drag their old driver (superbly subtle turn by Alan Arkin, especially in the brothel) out of his care home, steal a sports car and hit the town one last time. The old lions go for one last prowl and while they may look toothless, the moments when they give it one last roar are a total treat.

Stand Up Guys embraces the inevitability of death without being maudlin or mawkish.
