DISC SPOTLIGHT: 'Stand Up Guys'

Stand Up Guys Blu-ray (R)

Movie: 3 out of 4 stars

Disc: 3 out of 4 stars

Even with its iffy direction and derivative, overly Tarantino-flavored plot, "Stand Up Guys" stands up thanks to the collective performances of the three senior Oscar winners -- Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin. When sticking to the old school/wiseguy stuff, the narrative crackles; when it drifts into Viagra jokes, hookers and "Grumpy Old Men"-inspired banter, it hits a brick wall. Fans of Jon Bon Jovi already know he contributed new songs to the eclectic, soul-heavy soundtrack -- explored in detail in one of the featurettes. Good but not great, and probably better as a rental.
