    Just watched it on Netflix. What a fantastic movie. Joe Pesci had they gig of his life. Time has no mercy....

    Meh. Turned off 1.5 hours in.
    It was disappointing to us.
    Haven't there been 3 or 4 narrated mob movies with these same guys?

    I finally got around to watching this (over two nights) and man, what a boring movie. It might have been a semi-decent Scorcese mob re-hash at 90-120 minutes but at 3.5 hours it was just too long, and not very good.

    Oh look, another mob-guys-in-a-bar scene. It's the 8th one so far and I'm only 20 minutes into the movie.

    We liked it. Never really knew much about Jimmy Hoffa. Pacino and Pesci were great!

    Good movie, enjoyed it. However, I'm glad I watched it on Netflix, otherwise it would have been on with the man pads....if you know what I mean.

    Watched it twice
    Liked it a lot more the second lap because I understood the plot more.

    I don’t think it deserves all the hype it’s getting.

    It isn’t Godfather ll.

    I wanted to like it as I am a fan of Goodfellas and Casino, but it didn't click for me. Not saying it's bad, just not my cup of tea.

    i was so excited for it, but it was a disappointment to me. it just seemed empty. very little energy and the characters were just not engaging. IMHO.

    I liked it, but fell asleep a couple times watching it. I still haven't seen the last 20 minutes, because I fell asleep. I thought some of the acting was good, and I learned what "I paint houses" means, in mob lingo. Al Pacino doesn't look at all like Jimmy Hoffa, IMO. I also learned, "If they have a knife, run. If they have a gun, charge." Did Hoffa really say that about his son in court?
