The Irishman – Drama
Category – Movie
Content – The Irishman depicts a time in US history when the mob was at it’s peak. Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran learned to cheat the meat industry, kill for the mob and supposedly assist in the disappearance of his dear friend Jimmy Hoffa. I’m no history professor, so I must admit that I learned a lot about the 60’s and 70’s mob corruption and how the Teamsters grew to be as big as they are today. It’s an interesting watch; especially if you are unfamiliar with this time in US history; however don’t expect TOO much from the story, as that is lacking. It gets a 6 out of 10 for content.
Acting – Really? Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci. You really cannot go wrong in acting with these legends. Al Pacino as Jimmy Hoffa was mesmerizing! That’s a 9 out of 10 for acting.
Duration – 3 hours 29 minutes. WAY too long to watch history, no matter how legendary the actors are! This gets a 2 out of 10.
TOTAL INDEX for The Irishman – 17 out of 30
Recommended Watch – Sure if you have an extra 3 1/2 hours to kill.
