[7.25/10] The Irishman (2019)

The Irishman (2019)

Quick Review: Made with skill, flair and precision, technically spotless, and showing its three veteran stars at their best, yet slow, dragged out, talky,  and  overlong, "The Irishman" is an old-fashioned mob drama that starts off as a savage portrait of a cunning killer, but ends as a moving character study of a lone man, and though it barely offers anything new, the thought-provoking timeline, dark humor and riveting characters make it an absorbing affair that demands focus to be appreciated.

Couldn't have picked better actors for a mob movie.
