With a script that is nothing short of a master work, coupled with an intricate sense of production design and cinematography style, there is a filmmaking language here that is unmistakably deliberate.

One can't help luxuriate in the sordid Scorsesean splendour of it all. He's a masterful filmmaker, the poet laureate of the devil's bargain.

transcends mob movie clichés and stereotypes by digging into the humanity of those who often do everything in their power to be inhumane

There's no question that Martin Scorsese's epic drama drags in places, but what is good in it is so good that it far outweighs the bad.

All's well in The Irishman.

The movie definitely makes an impact with its affecting tale, acclaimed cast, and ambitious scope.

The Irishman is a much more deliberate and weighty gangster film - by comparison, Goodfellas is a riot. But it's a vibe that works in its gravitas.

Nothing [Scorcese's] done in a long time has been as good as The Irishman.
December 21, 2019
A film as much about aging and end-of-life regret as it is the mob.

'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.
December 18, 2019
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.
December 17, 2019
...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.
