Consensus: Danny Collins features some of Al Pacino's best late-period work and a solid supporting cast, none of which quite adds up to the film it should have been.

There's a nice fluidity and freedom to writer-director Dan Fogelman's storytelling, so things never become predictable.

While Pacino isn't exactly the most convincing rocker, he's dialed down his propensity to play to the rafters in a performance grounded in humility yet still entertainingly energetic.
