Consider the cast: Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin, all of whom own Oscar statuettes (and Arkin is up for another this year for Argo).

Pacino plays Valentine, an ex con leaving prison after 28 years for murder (an accident, the film explains these chummy criminals would never intentionally whack someone). The film opens with Doc (Walken) waiting outside the prison for his buddy, who will stay at Doc's tiny, cluttered apartment.

Pacino, especially, is pressed to play jester. As the reprobate of the group, he crushes and snorts hypertension medicine like cocaine. He overdoses on erectile dysfunction pills, turning him into a sight gag. Since his turn in 2002's solid Christopher Nolan drama Insomnia, directors seem bent on making him an over the top protagonist.

Yet only Walken gets to shine in this sweet but hapless crime story. Arkin has a bit part, Pacino a bloated one. And even with a solid acting crew backing up the trio, Guys can't help but freight them with throwaway car chases and shootouts that wouldn't pass muster in film school.

It's too much for a 94 minute film, even with the pedigree of the cast, particularly when the script has Pacino and Arkin clowning for easy laughs.

Alas, he's no match for the film's antics, which include a shameless plug for Dodge. And scenes meant to establish a bond between renegades in their twilight come off more like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Grandpa.

The standout here is Walken, who remains one of Hollywood's hippest seniors. He'll turn 70 next month, but his lilting voice and basset hound eyes are as touching and heartbreaking as they were when he paired with Robert De Niro in 1978'sThe Deer Hunter. The guy can hike his pants to his sternum and he's still the coolest cat on screen.

When we meet Hirsch, he's breathing through an oxygen tank and moving at a glacial pace. Five minutes Saucony Courageous On Feet later, he's outrunning cops and impressing prostitutes with his bedroom skills.

That's a shame, because Guys flirts with a tantalizing premise and begins brilliantly.

in retribution for the murder of the son of another gangster, Claphands (Mark Margolis, who was masterful as a Mexican cartel leader in Breaking Bad).

It's been a long time since a movie wasted as much talent as Stand Up Guys (1 1/2 stars out of 4; R), Reebok Runner Shoes

The early scenes are moving as the men try to maintain their machismo while not betraying their love for each other. More promising: We learn that Doc has a final job before he retires. He's ordered to kill Valentine Reebok Dark Stealth

But Guys loses plausibility faster than a Gatling gun loses bullets. Instead of sticking with that promising story line, director Fisher Stevens overloads the film with plot twists.
