Goodfellas is a gangster and mafia classic with an amazing cast and great direction and writing from Martin Scorsese. The story of how a normal guy rises through the ranks of the mafia over years and years is very deep and emotional. The performances from the whole cast are great and especially Joe Pesci who plays the most tough character.

Definitly Scorseses best film. A Movie that makes you root for the bad guys, De Niro, Liotta and Pesci were great. It's a must watch and i strongly recomend.

A great life story about a boy who enrolls in the local mob. Only for it to cause huge problems for him during the course of his life. Tough violent and gritty, but a classic film. Story telling at its best.

Goodfellas is a masterpiece, it?s a movie like you?ve never seen before.

GoodFellas deserves its reputation as one of the best gangster films, and also one of the most realistic: some critics have called it a version of The Godfather without the romanticizing of the gangsters. Based on the actual autobiography of a minor player in the gang hierarchy, the film is one of Martin Scorsese's best, with several sequences of what critics have rightly called bravura film making. As expected from Scorsese, lots of language, some sex and drugs, and intense, shocking violence. But if you want a film like this, this is one you will want. In some ways the film is a trial run for the even longer and more ambitious Scorsese film Casino, which makes it interesting to see both films; personally I prefer the grittier Goodfellas.

GoodFellas: A Martin Scorsease Classic. GoodFellas is a long, original crime film that lacks any taste and feels to familair.

The narration is carried out well and makes GoodFellas a memorable film. Even if you don't typically care for gangster movies it will pull you in and have you feeling like you've always wanted to be a gangster. Though a little overrated it is certainly something that everybody should see at least once. (First and only viewing - 8/12/2008)

Classic modern gangster flick based on the real life Henry hill

Interesting to watch this movie so late, as it is the obvious inspiration for the entire genre of mafia movies. Epic rise and fall story, showcasing the best of the excess, betrayal and violence of the genre. Features many of the same actors/actresses who star on the Sopranos. It's the movie that all other gangsta and mafia movies are building on.

A classic but can't totally recommend due to bad morals to the point where it's insane. Use severe discernment.

Best Mob movie ever. A lot better than The Godfather!

10 our of 10:

Thrilling, stylishly directed, gripping, and some of the best acting out there, Goodfellas gives us a more affective look at the world of gangsters.

An absolute clinic in storytelling, editing and character development with a stunning performance by Joe Pesci to go with it.

Does a perfect movie exist? Probably not but Goodfellas is as close to perfect as it comes. Everything in this movie works. The character development, the pacing of the story, the performances, the wicked fast paced editing and camera work and the humor that never gets in the way of taking this story and its characters serious. One of the greatest films ever made.

I hate mob/gangster movies, but I loved this movie, despite that fact, cause this isn't the greatest mafia movie ever, it very well might be the greatest movie ever period.

Talk about a great film! Goodfella's tells the true story of a gansgster and his lifestyle that he lives. However, this is not all about being a gangster, there is some family drama mixed in with it, and it blends perfectly with how the film tells its story. The characters are also fantastic, with Joe Pesci's really stealing the show. The plot however doesn't really have a specific ending point. It is hard to do this with a film based on a true story, but this is where it falters slightly, and they handle it quite well. A great adaptation of a true story!
