About Stand Up Guys
A film that brings legendary actors Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin together for the first time. Val (Pacino) is a small-time crook newly released from prison after 28 years. Despite his long sentence Val never gave up his fellow criminals to the authorities because at heart he is a loyal if excitable fellow. His best friend Doc (Walken) waits for him outside the prison with a heavy conscience: crime lord Claphands (Mark Margolis) blames Val for the death of his son and wants Doc to kill him. Figuring that something is wrong with Doc, Val suggests that they concentrate on having a good time. After some misadventures with booze and women they rescue their old getaway driver Hirsch (Arkin) from a nursing home. But they aren't spring chickens and the clock is ticking on their reunion in more ways than one.
