Nothwithstanding dutiful efforts to engender a retro vibe, the 'Irishman' fails to match the charismatic scintillation of its predecessors' characters; but it tries...in razing combustion. Don't be fooled, the film is thought-provoking, howbeit in the form of carophobia driven paranoia; one can't help but check the wheel well first, the ventral side next, the key slit third, or the adjacent vehicle fourth...if time allows. Unnerving, huh? Now you're catching on. Full Review »

    It's a nice movie, not very special. Good story, abrupt ending maybe, - well played by Ray Stevenson and Val Kilmer. Maybe it isn't originalIt's a nice movie, not very special. Good story, abrupt ending maybe, - well played by Ray Stevenson and Val Kilmer. Maybe it isn't original anymore to make irish crime cinema; I must say: very good choice of music. Enjoy this film.

With an entertaining screenplay this movie suffers from a ridiculous script and dialog between actors. It tries to be on the level of a Martin Scorsese film but feels more like Kelly Makin's Mickey Blue Eyes. Full Review »
