The perfect Gangster Movie, Goodfellas makes you wanna live in the era of mobsters from violence to sweet wine and cocaine. Brilliant performances from Ray Liotta, Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, and Lorraine Bracco

"Buenos Muchachos" es una de las obras maestras de Martin Scorsese, basada en "Wiseguy", libro que condensa memorias de Henry Hill, un joven que crece en un vecindario italoamericano y que sueña con convertirse en parte de la mafia. Scorsese confecciona un magnífico retrato del crimen organizado que incluye, sus relaciones, sus traiciones, la hipocresía, la paranoia, la sociopatía y la violencia inherente al "trabajo". Gracias a la dirección siempre impecable de Scorsese, a la impresionante fotografía de Michael Ballhaus y a un reparto de lujo conformado por Ray Liotta, Robert DeNiro y un insuperable Joe Pesci, "Goodfellas" se equipara fácilmente a clásicos del cine de gánsteres como "The Godfather". Imperdible.

Goodfellas is a 'true' picture; unlike some mob movies, it doesn't glorify organized crime, per se, it captures it perfectly on-screen.

The key in the success of Goodfellas is the dialogue. The script is just absolutely amazing. As profane and raw as it is, it really gives you a glimpse of how gangsters actually work and what they actually do. There's no denying the realistic nature of the film and how Scorcese's genius puts this film on the same level as "The Godfather", if not better.

The characters in this movie are captivating. De Niro's calm, collected character is offset by Pesci's loose cannon, loud-mouthed performance. Pesci definitely deserved the Oscar he won for this role, as he plays a character that is sick, as shown by his actions, yet likable all the same. That just shows what a great actor Pesci is.

Liotta gets Henry Hill down perfectly. His performance is one of the best in his whole acting career. He is innocent, yet violent; quiet, yet he has a temper at times; calm, yet crazy; his personality contradicts itself throughout the movie, yet this isn't a bad thing. In fact, it makes his character *that* much more interesting to watch.

Overall, this Oscar Winning, highly acclaimed picture deserves all the hype it gets: it's smart, realistic, and raw. These elements combine to form one of the best Gangster movies ever made. And yes, I think it is even better than "The Godfather".

It has MARTIN SCORSESE seal signed all over it. BRUTAL, VULGAR, VIOLENT, american NIGHTMARE. This is the archtype, an apogee of his cinematic technique. Simply the best movie about street gangster. One of the most memorable scene was The "Funny Guy" scene by Joe Pesci

Se é fã de máfia tens de ver este filme, se és fã de De Niro não o poderás perder. Não existe honra entre ladrões e é sem dúvida um retrato do que se passava realmente por dentro da organização mais famosa do mundo

Definitive film for the mobster style. Goodfellas takes a unique perspective of an aspiring gangster who feared to grow up and be a nobody. This film takes you on several highs and lows as you follow the lives of a mobster gang. These highs and lows certainly parallel what it would be like to be a member of the mob. As I watched this film, I couldn't help but to be completely engaged with their style. Every scene is completely unpredictable as director Scorsese unfolds the secret life of the mafia. So be a "wise-guy" and watch this modern classic.

What is there to say about Goodfellas that hasn't already been said? This is simply quintessential Scorsese. He's crafted a fantastic crime drama that's packed with snappy dialogue, as well as stunning imagery. The ever-famous three minute single take in particular is beautifully done. The three lead performances from Robert de Niro, Ray Liotta, and Joe Pesci are phenomenal, and rank among the best of their respective careers. Goodfellas is a must watch that certainly deserves its place as one of the finest films ever made.

A gripping, well acted story with a few twists. It really takes you into the mob world even if it is a bit drawn out.

an intense realistic and engaging look into the life of Italian mobsters showing the glamor as well as the violence and paranoia that comes from it, Goodfellas holds no punches, and it shows Scorseses at the top of his game, as well as showcasing the phenomenal skills of its stars Liotta, De Niro, and Pesci
