Don't let the length scare you away. When it's Scorsese it goes fast.

Scorsese proves he still knows what he’s doing. The cast is all wonderful here and for a 3 and a half hour movie it kept me intrigued almost the entire runtime. If your theater has it it’s a must see in theaters, if it doesn’t then make sure you check it out on NetFlix on the 27th

Intense, somber film that’s really about the end of a life that was a series of bad choices. Rough and well played.

It was not bad, but i expected it to be one of Scorsese's best, instead it dragged on and was just ok imo. From what ive read its not the true story of Jimmy Hoffas murder, which took away from the interest for me. Still good, but could have been better.

This movie was so well made. The CGI is insane! I still can’t get over it. The music and the sound FX were perfect. Story was very interesting. The acting was superb in every way. I think it’s a must see ... it’s long ... so bring snack and a drink lol.

Between the burnished sheen of Rodrigo Prieto’s cinematography, a soundtrack full of perfectly chosen period pop music, and countless sharply observed details of place, time, and character, The Irishman establishes a world that, for all its violence and tragedy, is hard to leave behind when the last shot...finally comes.

The Irishman is vintage Scorsese, with an often sinuously moving camera, occasional break-the-fourth-wall monologues, wicked wise-guy humour, and explosions of sudden tenderness and casual violence. And its final half-hour pulls something even deeper from the filmmaker – moments of reflection, twinges of regret, worries about chances thrown away.

Scorsese's choice to make this a standalone feature and not a limited series seems mildly perplexing. Anyone hoping for the propulsive dynamism of, say, Goodfellas or Casino may be disappointed. But The Irishman is also on many levels a beautifully crafted piece of deluxe cinema.
