'The Irishman' is another reaffirmation that Scorsese is not replaceable. [Full review in Spanish]

It is definitely a Scorsese type A, but the lowest film in that category. [Full review in Spanish]

The director creates a fascinating and frightening world with its own heroes and villains and the rules that govern them both - rules that are exceedingly complex, unlike the fictional black-and-white and occasionally grey domain of superheroes.

Does it give us a clearer insight into Scorsese's view of these films and the individuals in them? Most definitely, and for that if nothing else, it's worth its weight in gold.

I feel like Scorsese's saying, "I am never going back." There's one appropriate response, a devastating, absolute, "yeah".

Methodical, lyrical, and powerful, it earns every minute of its three-and-a-half hour running time.

The Irishman is a violent yet poignant film about a man caught up in the only world he has ever known and the friendships and betrayals that went along with it.
December 18, 2019
A three-and-a-half hour movie would usually drag, but I never felt that with this when you have a director and actors making every moment count.

Instead of the flash-bang Casino clone that many people expected, Scorsese gave us a bleak, somber story about the inexorable rot created by corruption and violence.

...still a treat for us to see these giants of cinema coming together to do their thing but the wear is beginning to show, even if the will is strong and the mind is still sharp. Adjust your expectations accordingly.

Three hours of "Godfather" wannabe. Acting good as is scenery but the story is DOA.

You got Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, and Joe Pesci in one movie... It's good to see them back again.

Their dialogue is so authentic, so real, and the way that they just bounce off of each other in this hypnotizing but also unsynchronized sort of way, it's just fascinating.
December 16, 2019
Scorsese and this mind-blowing cast are all about perfection.
December 13, 2019
When the story sprawls, it's always in the direction of character development. De Niro is absolutely masterful.
December 12, 2019
Martin Scorsese's "The Irishman" is a rich meditation on the legendary director's longtime obsessions: gangsters, violence, Catholicism, moral conflict and male friendship.
December 12, 2019
But it's De Niro who lands the knockout punches here... De Niro's Sheeran is a shell of a man, whose empty gaze and remorseless duty-killings untether him from his very soul. It's a pitch perfect performance.
December 12, 2019
The pièce de résistance is the remarkably mournful final act: an apt end point for Scorsese's career long interest in tales that detail the price that comes from a life of sin
December 12, 2019
The Irishman is larger in scale than anything [Martin Scorsese] ever done before, and it's stunning just how utterly captivating it is at every moment.
December 12, 2019
It...forces us to reconsider a body of work that is far more expansive than it is often given credit for by changing the template of his previous mob films and foregrounding questions of aging both in its text and its production.
