Critic Reviews for The Irishman

All Critics (411) | Top Critics (52) | Fresh (394) | Rotten (17)

  • There are 209 minutes in "The Irishman" and not one of them is wasted.

    Nov 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Whether seen on the big screen or a small one, The Irishman is among 2019's best motion pictures and should receive its share of Oscar attention in 2020.

    Nov 18, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "The Irishman" moves slowly and pensively, invests in the natural rhythm of conversations and stops to smell the roses.

    Nov 18, 2019 | Rating: A | Full Review…
  • It's the ultimate fusing of Scorsese's two sides... And even though it takes a while to get there, the movie is a masterpiece, one made by a man counting down his own years as if they were rosary beads.

  • "The Irishman" is long, to be sure, but it's never less than compelling - Scorsese, De Niro, Pacino and Pesci, all in their mid-to-late-70s, are each carrying a lifetime of work, with practiced ease.

    Nov 13, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "The Irishman" is cinema, of the highest order.

Audience Reviews for The Irishman

    This being nominated for SAG's "Best Acting Ensemble" is basically like when Bohemian Rhapsody won "Best Editing" at the Oscars. This uh... This movie's better though.

    The Irishman displays your typical Scorsese-motifs; lengthy narrative and narration, fluid cinematography & grisled-gang-violence. While its duration and pacing may cause one to add a few sit-ins to complete the film, it's still glued tightly by such magnanimous performances from DeNiro, Pacino and Pesci. 4.1/5

    It's definitely worth the hype, and definitely worth the 3 1/2 hours of viewing time. Set against the backdrop of the industrial Mid-Atlantic during some of the country's most turbulent political and social events, The Irishman is 2019's first perfect film - one that is so good, it doesn't even feel like it belongs in this decade, but rather feels like a masterpiece unearthed from decades earlier. De Niro, Pacino, Pesci are everything you want them to be and more in their performances; the writing, pacing, and editing are tight; the humor is dark, fast, and intelligent; and the story unravels beautifully . While the running time may require patience and dedication, there truly is no wasted moment - no extraneous or lagging scenes - as everything fits together seamlessly to deliver a payoff that is truly worth it.

    It's long like "Once Upon a Time in America", but it's also just as good. Actually it's even better. Scorsese has given us his best movie yet.
