Bronson selling him the green casket at the end was LULZ.

Movie was aight, except that casting DeNiro and Pacino as Hoffa (Pensylvania Dutch) and Sheeran (Pasty Irish guy) just isn't biologically accurate.

It's like Casting Dolph Lundgren to play Jesus.
Charlton Heston to play Moses.
FOH Scorcese.

Scorsese really blew it with the younger CGI Deniro. He still looks old as shit and Pesci is calling him “kid” lol.

Watched half of it with my brother earlier...started slow but then it got rolling. The scene with Al Pacino going off and DeNiro walking out was amazing. We were dying.

It was as good as any movie when it comes to age changes. It looked like they were doing some cgi stuff like those deep fake videos. DeNiro still looked too old to be “kid”, but Pesci did look noticeably older, its more of respect and establishing the pecking order than him being a real kid. He’s not a kid but he is in comparison to Joe Pesci’s character.

This movie is no where near the level of entertainment of Goodfellas, Casino or The Departed... I don't know what the **** the collective reviewers are thinking.

96% fresh on rotten tomatoes? The ****?

Why? Because of the cast?

It wasn't a boring film, but is sure as shit wasn't in the same league as those other movies.

Rotten tomatoes is a sjw shitshow with no credibility, why are you surprised?
If critics there like a movie, guaranteed it's a pile of shit.

It wouldn't surprise me if some of them have propped it up because of the main character's daughter's role in the movie.

Basically... the movie is about his failed relationship with his daughter, who has looked at him with nothing but disdain for years and flat out cut him off after the Hoffa hit... which is an entirely false version of what actually played out in reality by the way... in fact, most of the movie is historically inaccurate except possibly the Kennedy being taken out by the mafia bit, lol. I just don't buy that the mafia would be able to cause so much government cover-up and omission of information to the public on a federal level like that. Obviously the movie didn't get into that, the Kennedy lines were just interesting is all... But I digress...

Everything except the relationship with his daughter is window dressing. It is the 'meat and potatoes' of the movie.

I'm well aware DeNiro is 50% Irish, 25% Jewish, and 25% Italian. And that he has played all three enthnicities.

What I'm saying, is at any age ...
... DeNiro LOOKS NOTHING LIKE Frank Sheeran.
At all.
Pacino looks nothing like Jimmy Hoffa.
At all.

Movie was still good. Just saying.
Scorcece should cast with biological accuracy yo.
