Movie Review: The Irishman

Title: The Irishman
Genre: Historical Thriller
Release Date: November 27th, 2019
My Rating: ★★★★☆
IMDB Rating: 8/10

Summary from IMDB: 

Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran is a man with a lot on his mind. The former labor union high official and hitman, learned to kill serving in Italy during the Second World War. He now looks back on his life and the hits that defined his mob career, maintaining connections with the Bufalino crime family. In particular, the part he claims to have played in the disappearance of his life-long friend, Jimmy Hoffa, the former president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, who mysteriously vanished in late July 1975 at the age of 62.


I would first like to say that this was the longest movie I have ever watched. Good grief, 3:29 hours. With that being said, I really enjoyed it. The movie is based on true events. Robert DeNiro is amazing in his roll and the story is so deep and bone chilling. Just to think that these things actually happened, makes me shudder. You really need to watch this movie. I know you will be wondering "what happened to Jimmy Hoffa," Like I am.
