"The Irishman" ....... a review!
I understand why they called this movie "The Irishman." It was because someone had already used "The Never Ending Story."
Boy did this movie suck.
Look I was looking forward to this. Sure I hate Deniro as much as the next Deplorable but you put him in a mob movie with Joe Pesci and Al Pacino and add in Scorese as the Director and I think you would have a decent mob movie. Well we don't.
This is a bloated overwrought travesty of a farce. The "de-aging" process is a joke. Deniro in particular looks ridiculous. They screw up mob history throughout the movie and man it never fucking ends. This scene is a perfect example.
Look it is stylish and the set decoration is great. But why this movie fails is because it takes the moronic ravings of hit man Frank Sheeran who is the Zelig of the Mob who was involved in every major hit in the world. Now Mob guys do this crap all the time. The first one to do it was Joe Valichi who seemed to be present at every important mob meeting for 30 years. It's all bullshit. Just rumors that they are repeating and putting themselves in the middle of to look like big shots. Its just nonsense.
So in short don't waste your time. A lot of time. Certainly don't pay a dime to see it. I think they know that as it is on Netflicks already. So if you have half a day to waste I guess it is better than watching football. But I really don't recommend it.
