Oh that’s right they could act once. I would love to see a version of this movie with none of the cgi work done. Everyone moves around like they’re in constant pain or afraid to dislocate a hip. There’s a part where “young” DeNiro beats up a guy and some poor actor had to pretend he’s getting the thrashing of his life and not just being booped by someone’s grampgramps. It looked like he was trying to put on a slipper.

The Irishman is an epic, but it's an epic of a wasted life: the story of a man who turned opportunity into loss and death at every turn, and has nothing left but to wait for his own. Scorsese has stripped the mob life of any trace of glamour, leaving us only with the melancholy inevitability of death. All Frank Sheeran has left are his memories, but even the good ones do nothing but haunt him.

Scorsese has done it again! Obviously he's going to revisit themes from his best movies. Why wouldn't he when he does them so well? It definitely feels like a more personal gangster movie. I actually felt for some characters, especially De Niro, who delivers one of his best performances in YEARS. Pesci was great, but it's Pacino who steals every scene he's in. I did feel the length, but it earns its runtime. Great acting, directing, writing, and music. Definitely one of this years best.

Scorsese's wise-guy epics of the past are often unjustly judged to be a glorification of violence due to their energy and technical prowess. The Irishman takes out all possibility that one might look to these type of men as cool. This story is profoundly sad in its depiction of a life that will only bring misery. I found Pesci to the most compelling in his calm mannerisms and hundred mile stares. If this were to be the last hurrah for the main players involved, it would be quite the swan song.

Once you get past the de-aging (it looks like fckin Polar Express for the first half-hour) you get to enjoy the finest collection of svelte ties ever assembled on film. I chose to read it as a love triangle between three incredibly gay men denying their fabulosity while dressing to the nines. "Ugh, he wore shorts to meet me in Florida, can you believe?" "Oh my god this red wine vinegar is the best idea we had on this trip" Ohh yeah, leave that door slightly ajar, Pacino. Let him protect you.

You go in thinking meh, it's a mob movie, Scorsese's done them before and he'll do them again. You come out thinking anyone who ever does a mob movie after this is a complete fraud. Where his other movies may have played it for glory and tragedy, this is just... so bleak. Scorsese looks back at an entire American century, paints it with all the colours you expect from a Scorsese mob movie, and then goes "OK, boomer."

What I mainly took away from the film is how the past eventually catches up with its titular character - having resigned to a life of murder, deceit and shady dealings - which its understated final shot captured rather beautifully. But unless you're making 'The Straight Story' or 'Ikiru', there's nothing more cringe-worthy and unexciting than watching a bunch of old actors acting younger than their current ages, especially when achieved through dogdy de-aging technology. Wish I'd liked it more

Moving at the pace of an unconvincingly de-aged De Niro beating up a grocery store owner, THE IRISHMAN is a slugfest that goes for profound elegy, but misses wildly and instead ends up as an uninvolving and fatally overlong rethread of a great director's former glories ("Uh, a grizzly murder montage set to contrapuntal jazz music! I'VE NEVER SEEN THAT BEFORE.") But hey – at least Bobby Cannavale's in it.

Some people are sayin', I dunno, not me. But people, you know? They may be sayin' the technology here is actually put to good use - we're not seeing honest-to-God De Niro, but Now De Niro as young Frank. And whatever weirdness may be there, it calls constant attention to the invention in recollection, and that to the ultimate cynical decline of one's purpose to age. There is no heroes' end to the antihero's arc, where Joe Pesci shoots you in the face. It is what it is, you know?

Scorsese makes a good attempt at rekindling the magic with De Niro and Pesci, but over the last thirty years what's been lost hasn't been talent, but youth, and applying make-up, physical or digital, can't hide the unnatural look when old men have young faces. It's a solid movie, a little too indulgent in length, but it's no "Goodfellas".

The gang is back together, and digital illusions rewind to their prime, and for me, a hesitation that this could just be Scorsese spinning the tires once more for old time's sake. But as Unforgiven to Eastwood, The Irishman is a weary, metatextual self-reckoning of its creator's association with the material. Here is an enlightened deconstruction of the mob movie from its greatest don. The perspective of a life lived, reconciliation for a history of violence, and a profoundly lonesome finality.

First Bellocchio's "Il Traditore" and now Scorsese's "The Irishman". 2019 will go down as the year where two masters say their farewells to the mafia genre with expansive, exhausting, existential epics that focus on truth, decay, and the passage of time. I feel these films will be to mob movies what "Harakiri" (1962) is to samurai films. Mastery at work, uncut.

I prefer films with narrative purpose. A story goal. That means having an inequity that somebody is attempting to rectify, and The Irishman doesn't have that. It's a collection of things that just...happen for 3.5 hours. Yes, there is good performances, yes the visuals, cinematography, editing, and use of dialogue is masterful. But without something our characters are trying to DO from the get go...to me, there's just no point.

a film so rich, so dense, so layered it's impossible to full comprehend in one sitting, but my takeaways are this: for Scorsese, De Niro, Pacino and Pesci, this is their swan song; a rumination on the past, the haziness of memory, and the gentle longing from an era since vanished. every scene is riveting and it is wickedly funny to boot. go see it in the theater. unless there's an asshole snoring at your screening like there was at mine. bring a water bottle to pee in and dump on his head.

Redemptive final hour saves this. A painful first hour stumbles with de-aging, but mostly because the story drags - partly in the roadtrip structural device. Characterization is replaced with awkward stammering and forced emotion. Pacino provides much needed intentional energy. DeNiro and Pesci feel most comfortable and nuanced in old age; the artifice is finally stripped away. If the film were about artifice, this would be justifiable. In the end, this slog of a reunion only works in theory.

A rare miss by Criticker. It made waves, but for me, it was a two hours too long movie about an obvious bullsh*tter; he didn't do half of what he said most probably. Although I appreciate the courage and the challenge, it was obvious that all main characters are being played by people well beyond their age and it was to the detriment of the story. I did not like the story much either; and with all due respect, I have seen enough of Pacino and DeNiro for a lifetime.

Aging mob hitman Frank Sheeran tells his life story. Well, it's Martin Scorsese directing an all star cast in an epic gangster movie...so naturally it's of excellent quality and filled with really strong performances. However, no amount of CGI can hide the fact that De Niro moves like a man in his 70s, and several parts of this movie were totally unnecessary or dragged on forever. Still definitely worth your time.

A rich and tragic culmination of the gangster genre. 210 minutes of incredible acting by three legends, all tightly wrapped up in a bow by arguably the greatest to ever do it. Scorcese is so fucking good, that he averages around 3 bonafide classics every decade since the 1970s.

This is good, really good, even if I didn't love it as much as some of Scorcese's other gangster epics; it just didn't feel as fresh. The de-ageing was just about successful, but one scene was beyond parody. You'll know it when you see it. The performances are great, with Pesci's cold, calm underplaying a joy to watch, and the story itself is quite absorbing, with an effective downbeat undercurrent. Definitely worth seeing.

I'm a little uneasy with how comfortable Scorsese is using homophobic slurs in this film, and his women characters lack any agency, but I still enjoyed this, and I'm not a huge fan of gangster movies. It's a compelling exploration of mortality and aging and the closest thing Scorsese has made to an anti-gangster, criticizing the Hollywood glorification of gangsters that Scorsese himself has been more than complicit in.

In "A Journey Through American Movies," Scorsese talked of the trajectory that Ford and Wayne's westerns took though the decades, beginning with a quintessential hero and evolving into Wayne as the anti-hero in The Searchers. His observation has stuck with me in the months leading up to The Irishman's release. After viewing the long build up to the masterful, reflective ending of Frank's story, it's clear Scorsese was aware of his and De Niro's analogous positions within the gangster genre.

Scorsese is a master because he takes this, an elephant of a film burdened with multiple aspects that should sink it, and makes it not just work, but work kind of beautifully. The trip-ups are small (early de-aged scenes are distracting and awkward), but once Pacino enters the picture, the film breezes along. And it can sometimes feel like a retread for Scorsese, but its pensive, quiet ending will sneak up on you and, hopefully, rattle you a little.

Scorsese's gangster films are always about swagger and then remorse. Only he doesn't have the verve for the good times anymore. Everything here is bad times. Everything is sad, vacant, and repulsive. The story apart from the regret is pointless and uninvolving. De Niro's empty digital eyes tell the whole thing.

Solid as a rock, and, considering the average age of the creative powers involved, surprisingly vibrant. Age itself becomes a central point in the film, as time slowly takes its toll on the characters, culminating in the sublime final act, where, contrasted to the violence earlier, Sheehan and the other just... wither away, pathetically.

A grand and flamboyant final brush stroke on Scorsese's major filmic (and personal) obsessions also provides a closure of sorts for De Niro, Pacino and Pesci and their iconic place in this genre and filmdom generally - will any of these great fellas have a chance to be this good again? Much ballyhooed CGI effects are marginally more effective than a good makeup job, but being able to follow its stars through the decades of the screenplay is a worthwhile offset.

Sorry, but it gets old. The chewed out themes, the shallow plot, the nonchalant killing to tunes of controdicting swing jazz, and the flashback narration that won't give you a break-- We've seen it all, and done much better on many occasions, back when these guys weren't only believable as nursing home geriatrics.

The usual Scorsese bombastic style and approach here has a quiet undertone of uneasiness, which is then very much put to the foreground in the film's second half, directly conveying what has never been so vulnerable and so uncomfortably existential from this director, these actors, or this screenwriter before -- this film just gets better and better as it goes on. All performances are great, though the three leads are extraordinary in their own ways, contributing to both grandiosity and closure.

It took an hour or more to get going, to hook me in, but then after that point I was actually surprised how emotionally invested I was. At that point the remaining 2 hours or so flew by, and it took this from a 70 to an 85 There are wonky parts, like whenever De Niro beat someone up, and some de-aging isn't great, but it's a gangster epic with heart and something on its mind. The final shot is brilliant, as well. A very personal feeling mob movie, you don't get that many of those.

On regret or the absence thereof, and growing old, but it's hard to say it was really worth the journey: the insights are meagre, even if there are a few pleasurable moments along the way. The lack of any significant or interesting female character distinguishes this from GOODFELLAS and CASINO, to its cost.

The de-aging doesn't work and effectively ruins the first half. Even if the faces didn't look creepy and still 20 years older than intended, a 75 year old does not move like a 45 year old and the grocery store beatdown is a laughable example of this problem. This is a shame because Pesci is brilliant, Pacino is superb and De Niro gives one of his best ever performances. Ironically this could have been near perfect if Marty had just watched more Marvel movies and seen how they de-aged characters.

De Niro, who's on very fine form here, owns Scorsese's latest. Nevermind the leisurely running time and the hit-or-miss de-aging effects, what sets this super solid, but ultimately too sweeping gangster requiem apart (somewhat at the cost of character engagement) are the dialogue and the humor, the disputes between a good-not-great Pacino's Hoffa and Graham's Tony Pro being particularly funny.

Lost interest somewhere half way through, never really got the feel of what the whole thing was about, and the time jumps didn't fit in. Great cast and photo but this CGI youth serum thingy was kind of ridiculous and poorly made, or the effect itself was nice but when De Niro moving around as the 80(?) year old he is it doesn't matter if his face looks like 30. Like when he was beating up that shop owner and kicking him to the curb, it looked like he was using a walking chair while doing it :D

The production design is top notch and the film is deeply immersive. While the film could have been significantly trimmed, it never drags, thanks to a largely engaging script and strong performances (Pacino is the standout). However, due to its length, boring music, questionable sound, and De Niro's youngified Technicolor © eyes are made more significant negative factors, while its few truly excellent moments (for example, Hoffa's wife starting her car) are almost lost and forgotten.

With all the work that went into the de-aging effects, you think they could have hired a body double for the action scenes, sheesh. Otherwise a fairly compelling (though a bit too long) tale about some oddly smooth-faced gangsters and how such a life leads to nothing but betrayal and emptiness. Very much a story told by an old man near the end of his life reflecting on the futility of it all, and all the better for it. Pesci is the real highlight, great to see him back.

Well made but unremarkable crime epic bears some resemblance to the helmer's old genre pics, except without the same dynamism or sense of invention, which is perhaps fitting for a film that deals more with time and mortality, but it's far too long, and the de-aging effects are hit and miss because the actors still move and sound like old men. Deniro and Pacino do their best work in years. It's a real shame then that Zailian's middling script is not really worthy of their collective talents.

Just in case anyone missed the "point" (if you will) of Goodfellas, The Irishman is huge film that renders the lives of great men so very small. Men who are afraid to die and are merely collecting days as a way of life, in defiance of the idea that there could be anything more to their existence than envelopes of cash and another lonely sunrise.

This is no way to spend 3.5 hours. You get a nice moment at the end, as the lead shares his regrets for some points in his life. But that's after spending far too long with a man who is a henchman for some of the most horrific authorities possible. The writing takes a while to get into focus, skimming over an intriguing father-daughter relationship in problematic ways. DeNiro's performance and some of the editing gimmicks are nice, but not enough to recommend the film for mass consumption.

I don’t feel I can call this anything but reheated Goodfellas/Casino leftovers - but as any mac and cheese fan knows, reheated leftovers can still taste great. This has that Scorsese pop and mood and style and mix of melancholy and sheer masculinity, keeping history interesting while also playing with the edges of “history” in possibly dubious but compelling ways. Can’t deny I felt it’s runtime at points, but still a must watch. Great to see Joe Pesci back and on form.

A peculiar meditation on aging, death, and legacy. It's something of a meta-film, in that the venerable actors (and Scorsese himself) reflect on the fictional mob characters that constantly overshadowed their respective careers. It's refreshing to see that level of soul from a director who had increasingly buried himself in documentarian authenticity to the point of pulpy paperback dryness. Whereas The Departed was a hacky rehash of old mob flicks, this film actually does something new.

An absolutely beautiful meditation on a life of crime that provides a nice (likely) final chapter to the gangster genre for many of the men that helped elevate it. That said...look, the movie is 3 and a half hours long and it feels every minute of it. The final act is divisive but I'm of the opinion that as brutally depressing as it is it elevates everything that came before it.

Note: I am the prime audience for this movie. Amazing cast, great direction, incredible script. I watched it as a 3-part mini-series and that really helped with the pacing. It could have been 5 or 6 hours long and I still would have loved it. Folks complain about some of the de-aging, but it's not all that bad. I prefer it over seeing other actors try to play these legends. The final hour is so tense and sad, but results in an incredible emotional kick in the gut.

Stunning gangster epic that relies on top notch performances from Pacino, Pesci and De Niro. Scorsese is a master of this genre and continues to show has not lost touch with the ability to bring great stories to life. It leaves no detail untouched.

I'm fond of this, especially the final hour or so, which deconstructs the mobster life (and film genre) in important ways. I found it interesting the way DeNiro played Sheeran as an "invisible man," an ethnic minority in an Italian-American milieu. That he used his invisibility to benefit his criminal enterprises becomes a tragic set up that leads to his complete annihilation (were it not for grace).

The first half was a lot better than the second half. Scorsese always does well with gangster buddy setups but his endings always seem to be dragged out moralizing.

I liked that the murders were not too exaggerated. Fav scene: pushing taxicabs into the water.

Comes across as Scorsese's equivalent to Unforgiven, the tearing down of a genre the director has embodied. Everything (most of all killing) is portrayed as anticlimactic, banal and ultimately pointless. The final act is where the film really shines, turning into existential horror. Pesci is the standout as a softly-spoken conduit to "some people", also enjoyed brief turns of Jim Norton as Don Rickles & Steve van Zandt as Jerry Vale. Should've had Paulie Walnuts in there too as G. Gordon Liddy.

It's material that Scorsese has dealt with his entire career & initially feels like been there done that. This familiarity however allows him to achieve a relaxed & poignant tone that feels so natural & unforced it's hard to imagine anyone else but Scorsese (with this cast) pulling it off. Feels too long for a long time but the last third really hits hard & puts his entire work into a unique perspective of bleak finality. Almost like Leone's America but distinctly stripped of poetic contrivance.

The sole reasons The Irishman works are Scorsese’s directing and the phenomenal acting. The personal portrayal of the life of a gangster is an interesting take, although he’s not exactly the most likable character. The runtime is mostly earned, although I wouldn’t have minded a nice twenty minute trimming of some parts. The film mostly comes together in the third act, as it takes a bit of time to get invested. It’s not The Godfather, but it’s a really well made film.

It's like The Goodfellas, but shifted 20 years forward. What Scorsese really wanted to talk about was in the last hour: what remains of a mob life it's only ashes. The mafia life is a dry life, everybody is a tool. Until then, what really keeps this movie going it's Al Pacino in Jimmy Hoffa, a character that share the same immorality of gangsters, but not the same individualism, and it's somehow reedemed by that. Frank is like Eichmann: The Banality of Evil, a soldier without regrets.

Pesci, DeNiro, and Pacino all show why their names are known for this kind of film, and Scorcese imbues the final product with his signature touch and themes. I understand why the runtime is what it is, and I think to some extent it does earn my attention for its entirety. There's just a part of me that thinks it's a bit excessive and meandering in its midsection: as fun as some of its subplots can be, they don't add much to the final message of the film regarding redemption and forgiveness.

3 stories crammed into one. Way to long. Way off pace. I sit back wondering, when did this movie actually peak? Did it peak? Was there a climax to this movie? Or was it just much ado about nothing?

This is another well made gangster film by Martin Scorsese. The cast are all really good here, so many good performances. The script is also good, a lot of thrilling scenes. The film does drag a bit and it would have been even better if the legnth was cut. Overall I would recommend this film.

Who would've thought we'd see the day when the most interesting thing coming from scorsese was his criticism of the mcu?

Spend as much money as you want to make De Niro look young, it won't matter because no 30 year old moves like a slug. In a scene where he rough ups a store owner it looks like he will break his own hip.

Like a joyride in a Ferrari for 90 minutes, that's the time of your life! And then the engine blows and you have to get out and push it for 2 hours.

Nothing particularly wrong here, but we've seen it all before, and If I have a spare three hours and am in the mood for a Scorsese mobster movie I'm always going to pick Casino or Goodfellas over this. Plus the de-aging effects are distracting.

Pesci is the true gem in this movie that oozes of great talent in every aspect, but also seems a bit old fashioned at times.

Maybe longer than it needed to be but I can't think of a scene you'd trim from it. Wonderful meditation on life and crime.

Too short. The last hour in particular is a beautiful meditative look back on de Niro's character's life, but on a broader level feels like Scorsese looking back on his film career (much like he did in Silence).

The Irishman is Forrest Gump: Gangster Edition. This means it'll win Best Picture over a more deserving Quentin Tarantino film.

Bu sene Parasite'dan daha iyisi gelmez diyordum, daha iyi mi hala bilemiyorum ancak The Irishman beklentimin de üstüne çıkarak benim için bu senenin en iyi iki filminden biri oldu. Hikaye, kurgu, sinematografi ve Scorsese o kadar güzeldi ki üç buçuk saat boyunca bir an bile sıkılmadım. Özellikle hikayenin zamanlar arası geçişine ve bağlanmasına bayıldım. Pacino ve De Niro dedelerim çok seviyorum sizi.

A late career masterpiece. The Scorsese montage may have softened and slowed down as he's grown older, but I think his style has more impact as a result

A 3.5 hour monument, laced with music and sweeping camera moves. I really enjoyed the slow pacing and the very extensive "exposition" part. The last hour is ice-cold intense.

We stan Scorsese. The Netflix format saves this movie a lot of grief by letting it be as long as it is. Nothing has to get cut, so nothing feels choppy. The cast rocks the house. Pesci's presence elevates any project, but De Niro and Pacino are no slackers. Even the CGI de-aging isn't horrible for the most part. Irishman rocks and could be the gangster movie to end them all.

Tiring to watch at times, especially since certain scenes are far from engaging, but this is a meticulously crafted film. The acting by some of filmmaking's best actors is on full display and the theme of reflection upon aging is conveyed beautifully. The final hour is particular potent - it begs the question of whether or not Franks actions were truly worth it, framing the film's events in such a way to make an old man consider his bloody legacy ending with no resolution to this question.

It was seems like a jubilee film by Al Pacino, Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese.. Couple of points go for godfather theme music while in the bar and the ending music... Thanks.

It's a very mature Scorsese mob movie, no doubt. Pesci is great, Pacino brings in amazing energy, De Niro is, well, De Niro. All that said, the movie stumbles at times -especially in the first half- like De Niro does when he's beating someone up pretending to be a younger person.

Actually bad. I thought the digital effects were bad at first, but then I saw a side-by-side comparison video and the effects weren't so bad, the problem was that the actors are all actually much older than I thought. They all still move and talk like 70 year-olds even when they are playing 30 to 40 year-olds. Digital effects aside, the movie is long, meandering and really has nothing new to offer.

There are interesting biographical elements in The Irishman, as well as stellar performances from most of the cast (notably Pesci & Pacino), but they can't make up for the fact that the film is just too long & drawn out to sustain interest. Scorsese's done similar films with similar themes of machoism, brotherhood & Americana before, and while a solid addition, this film doesn't add much. Ultimately, the film glorifies thuggery as an intrinsic part of American society, and it never engrossed me.
