The first reviews of Martin Scorsese's mafia film The Irishman have been published. Many praise the Netflix movie in the highest tones. Allegedly, he is even counted among the best crime films of the director. Most compare the movie to the classic Goodfellas. Here's the latest cast of The Irishman on Netflix.
The latest reviews on The Irishman on Rotten Tomatoes give hope for good. Movie critics have been thoroughly enthusiastic about the project so far. The worries about the makeover for Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci are also unfounded. Although the de-aging in The Irishman is still unfamiliar. But getting used to it becomes much easier over time. It is claimed that The Irishman Scorceses is the best crime film since Goodfellas.
Variety writer Owen Gleiberman is deeply impressed with the mafia epic: "An imposing, sinister, enticingly enticing summary, not just a drama, but a reckoning, a vision of the criminal underworld, in the director's previous mafia films echoing, but leading us to something daring and new. "
Time Magazine's Stephanie Zacharek says a big surprise awaits the audience. She also drew a comparison with Goodfellas: "A film about betrayal and regret and loss and he is moving in a way that is not Goodfellas – an old man could not make that movie, just as a younger one could not have done it. "
Scorcese's latest film, however, is also an alternative to Goodfellas, as BBC's Caryn James states. From the beginning you would portray life as a criminal as it really is: "The Irishman is not Goodfellas Light or Goodfellas 2, he's more of an opposite Goodfellas." "The main character from the 1990 movie feasted on the money and comradeship Mafialebens until it finally caught up with him, but the deep, reverberant and even witty Irishman shows the sociopathic undertaking and the harm of this life from the beginning. "
The Irishman is well received by viewers, we learn on 27.11.2019. Then the critically acclaimed mafia movie will be shown on Netflix worldwide. The trailer can now be found in our player. Simply click to start the video.
