A movie poster headlining Scorsese, De Niro, Pacino, and Pesci means you instantly know you are in for a mobster movie. How different from other mafia movies it is though. Instead of a thrill ride or glorification, we experience the mundanity, if you will, of everyday violence, murder, extortion, bribery, fraud and a variety of other felonies through the eyes and memories of the Irishman. A character study reflecting on life and loyalties, loss and loneliness, and pain and penance.
Well. Another Liam Neeson Action Movie.
Liam Neeson’s acting is fine and so is Ed Harris’, but in the end there just isn’t anything special to this movie. I would write more if only I could remember anything about the plot.
Utterly forgettable. Only watch it if you are bored and can’t think of anything better to do.
