All of the performances are first-rate; Pesci stands out, though, with his seemingly unscripted manner. GoodFellas is easily one of the year`s best films.

GoodFellas, which somehow mixes its horrors with a deep vein of mordant humor, flows with the exuberance of a filmmaker who has every detail nailed and a few new lovely moves he wants to show us.

Spanning thirty years and running two and a half hours, the film bristles with the violent passion, howitzer wit and virtuoso style that made Scorsese's reputation with the gangster drama Mean Streets in 1973.

In GoodFellas, Scorsese, that connoisseur of mean streets and brutish, reflexive rage, has fashioned a stunning film that belongs on the same lonely, top shelf as Coppola's Mafia saga.

Scorsese's best film? Difficult to call, though if it doesn't beat Raging Bull, it runs it a close second.

South Florida Sun-Sentinel

From its opening scene of shocking brutality through its remaining 150 minutes of electrifying, relentless drama, violence, humor and horror, Martin Scorsese`s spellbinding Mafia saga GoodFellas is a film audiences will long remember.

Robert De Niro gives what has come to be a typical Robert De Niro performance -- understated, sly, ingratiating. Joe Pesci, as the hot-tempered Tommy, steals several scenes from his fellow performers.

GoodFellas is a movie that savagely and thoroughly obliterates romanticized notions of the Mafia.

The most profoundly Catholic of contemporary filmmakers, Scorsese has here imagined a world without the slightest notion of sin-everything is permitted, and he is both fascinated and appalled by the total freedom of his characters.

Be prepared to be completely bowled over by a director at the peak of his talents and in full control of top-notch material.

Martin Scorsese's GoodFellas' is a good film, maybe a great film, but it is also difficult to watch at times. At times, it is so brutal you will find yourself looking away.

In GoodFellas, director Martin Scorsese does something simple and audacious: He takes the guilt out of organized crime.

The stylistic blast of what is surely the first rock and roll gangster movie revels in the glamour then twists on the brutality of the mob life...

Goodfellas and The Godfather saga tower above their competition and deserve their place in the pantheon of American crime pictures.

Arguably the greatest mob movie ever made.

Emanuel Levy

Based on Pileggi's book, Scorsese's biopic of Henry Hill is so well-crafted, shot, and acted that it easily overcomes some of the film's shortcomings, such as its dramatic shaplessness and less than powerful ending.

It's not only the greatest gangster film ever made, but it's also one of the most glaring omissions in the history of the Oscars.
