After struggling to get through The Irishman, I ended up asking myself at the end if I missed something. I watched it a second time, a few days later and sure enough, it really didn't end up being much more than passing the time sort of movie. Gangster Epic? There is nothing epic about this film other than the running time. I loved Goodfellas and Casino, but this movie in no way measures up to those classic Scorcese movies.
2001 ways to confront your childhood issues with a parent so that you can avoid your own personal Apocalypse Now. With a side helping of Mad Max space pirates on the moon. This film like most films is a direct derivative of better movies. There is nothing groundbreaking here, and the acting is good but not terribly inspiring. Pitt's compartmentalized demeanour becomes tedious over the course of a couple of hours. Liv Tyler and Tommy Lee Jones are largely wasted in the minimalist sprawl of the movie. The bottom line is that while yes we all need to confront our problems and let them go, the real question is how does one do that? Certainly not by taking a spacecraft to the edge of the universe to confront your father. The 42 percent audience rating is probably closer to the reality of this film. This is one of those all too common movies that critics go over the top about but really is nothing more than a decent movie. It's not awful but it's not riveting cinema either.
Not a great superhero movie. There is little chemistry between Heard and Momoa and a pretty average superhero movie that is really only saved by the special effects.
