The local mob boss, Claphands, wants Val dead (Claphands’ son died in a robbery and he blames Val) and Doc has until morning to kill him. It’s a long night: Val wants to party – they visit a cat house, Val needs Viagra, they break into a pharmacy. After midnight, they pick up Hirsch, their old wheelman, drive the city in a stolen car. They visit the cat house, help a woman in distress, bury a body, and eat at Doc’s hangout, a café where the waitress, Alex, is cheerful. The sun rises, Claphands wants Val dead, and Val, who has figured out his fate, is resigned. Is there anything left to take care of?
Plot: After serving 28 years in prison for accidentally killing the son of a crime boss, newly paroled gangster Val reunites with his former partners in crime, Doc and Hirsch, for a night on the town. As the three men revisit old haunts, reflect on their glory days and try to make up for lost time, one wrestles with a terrible quandary: Doc has orders to kill Val, and time is running out for him to figure out a way out of his dilemma.

I read some of the reviews here, and I think that some who have reviewed this extremely negatively (as in 1/10) are those who appreciate a movie with lots of explosions, and maybe some guys with their tops off, flexing their muscles to accentuate just how tough they are.
Luckily, there isn’t much of that in Stand Up Guys. It’s character-driven, centered on the relationship between Val (PAcino) and Doc (Walken), both of whom are spectacular.
There’s some great dialogue between the two, and despite what you may read on here, the story is quite solid, if simplistic. I don’t think people have fully grasped these characters in some reviews, or the meaning of the title “Stand Up Guys”. They’re throwbacks, and the situations they encounter represent the direction the world has headed over the years, a world that Doc is forced to be a part of, despite wanting a quieter life.
I won’t go on any further, but I found the characters endearing, and the relationship between Val and Doc kept me on the hook.
Nice soundtrack, too.
Old men gangsters can still do the job
It’s been a while since I found a movie this fun to watch. Not brilliant, not ingenious and maybe not all that great, not something that will go down in cinema history. Just that: some very fun and entertaining 90 minutes.
Al Pacino plays an old criminal, a ‘stand-up guy’, who leaves prison after 28 years. Christopher Walken, his friend, is assigned to kill him by a vindictive mob boss; so the two decide to live Pacino’s last hours with style like their old days.
The movie is quite a delight to watch. Pacino and Walken are both brilliant actors, and even if not at their best their performance here still shows. Their characters feels real, almost as if they aren’t working but really just having fun with each other. Alan Arkin, who joins both for a good part of the movie, also gives quite a flair of talent, even if not as snarky as I prefer from him.
The music, mostly by Bon Jovi, really complements the story and there is plenty of black humor. Something about the political incorrectness of their ‘adventure’ (which involve a cat house, breaking into a pharmacy, beating up other criminals and ‘saving’ a friend from a retirement house) helped making me like the film, and make the characters seen very much real.
The chance to see Pacino and Walken (and Arkin to a lesser extent) in a nice, less serious but fun showing of their skills, coupled with the entertaining and almost heart-warming story, makes this film a sure recommendation.
