Netflix’s ambitious news has three reasons to give it a chance: Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci (that stubborn thief from Home Alone).

When the actors meet in a film, it is always a guarantee of quality, which is underlined by the direction of Martin Scorsese, a man who has, for example, the Wolf of Wall Street, Cursed Island or the legendary taxi driver. And if you rejuvenate the actors in your film using the latest trick technology, you’re sure to get the viewers interested.

Raw historical drama

First, the Irishman is a certain kind of drama that will not satisfy everyone. It is based on real events and offers a variety of realities, including authentic footage or accurate data and information about the different characters that occur during the film.

This 210-minute biographical film can be very cool and realistic, funny, but sometimes a little stretched. The story develops very slowly, the interviews are carefully prepared and everything is divided into two-time series.

The viewer must be very attentive and focused in order to be able to record all of this and not to get lost in this cruel, dark but well-told story. a story of friendship, betrayal and devotion.

Action at the forefront, accompanied by the skills of computer assistants

Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci. These three acting legends guide the viewer through the film and each shows a remarkable art of acting.

Al Pacino is the most entertaining factor in the film, Pesci is a serious and conscious man who does what it takes, and De Niro is somewhere in the middle.

You will find that the age of the actors has been digitally and practically adjusted. This is most evident in Robert De Niro, whom we meet in several time series.

Personally, it took me a while to get used to the tapered shape, and at some point, his face seemed to be cut out of a high-quality video game – depending on the camera angle and the details of the shot.

In any case, in the field of such foresight, this is a respectable job that may not approach perfection, since the keen eye still recognizes when digital rejuvenation and practical makeup are enough, but this technology is still evolving and one day Perhaps we’ll see that the actors, at least on cinema screens and television screens, will stop aging.

Burnt material that is difficult to absorb

The big problem the Irishman has is the length above. Filmed material is sometimes not interesting enough and at three and a half hours a little boredom can arise here and there. For similar films, the focus is mainly on the artistic processing and message of the film. It is, therefore, necessary to forgive the burned length and to accept the film as it is.
