Stand Up Guys Synopsis

SYNOPSIS: Stand Up Guys stars Academy Award® winners Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin in a tough but touching action comedy as retired gangsters who reunite for one epic last night.

Val (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 (Walken) is there to pick him up, and the two soon reteam with another old pal, Hirsch (Arkin). Their bond is as strong as ever, and the three reflect on freedom lost and gained, loyalties ebbed and flowed, and days of glory gone by. And despite their age, their capacity for mayhem is still very much alive and well - bullets fly as they make a hilariously valiant effort to compensate for the decades of crime, drugs and sex they’ve missed.

But one of the friends is keeping a dangerous secret- he’s been put in an impossible quandary by a former mob boss, and his time to find an acceptable alternative is running out. As the sun rises on the guys’ legendary reunion, their position becomes more and more desperate and they finally confront their past once and for all.

Despite a great cast and decent marketing campaign, Stand Up Guys didn’t do so stand up at the box office. I blame the title of the film for being too nondescript. Regardless, if former criminals and shoot-em-up aspects are your thing, you can catch Stand Up Guys when it hits Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download on May 21.

Stand Up Guys stars Pacino as Val, a old school con man recently released from his long stint in prison. His best friend and partner in crime, Doc (Walken) is contracted to kill him by the following morning. While this duo on its own is intriguing, things get really interesting when Val acknowledges this is his last night on Earth.

The clip has a jazzy sort of crime vibe, with Al Pacino playing a former convict with debts to settle, unless his longtime friend and former partner (Walken) follows orders and has him whacked by morning. Yet despite a few scattered shots of gun play and fighting, this looks like a dialogue exercise, with outstanding performers like Alan Arkin, Julianna Margulies, Bill Burr and the terrific Mark Margolis chipping in with supporting roles.
