**** out of ****     Gangster films - or Mob films, whatever you prefer to call the genre - are very special to me. Some of my personal favorite films have themes and tones of crime thrillers, and with good reason. I have always enjoyed the style of the films, and among other things, the way the characters talk. Within Gangster cinema you will find some of the freshest, cleverest dialogue ever written for the screen. A lot of these famous films are indeed based on novels, but …

Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) is a young boy growing up in a rough neighborhood full of trouble. Instead of doing normal things like the rest of the kids his age, he decides he will quit going to school and be a gangster. Tommy DeVito (Joe Pesci) and Jimmy Conway (Robert De Niro) immediately befriend Henry, and the three of them start to become good friends. They quickly begin to climb the ladder in the mob world, but they could be going too far with their work. Having to go behind the back of their …

Martin Scorcese has proved his worth as a director for the last 20 years. With his mafia epics, such as goodfellas and casino, later followed by the departed and gangs of new york, he has shocked the world with his gritty realism and intricate plotlines. Ray Liotta in Goodfellas is the average guy-turned mafia man, and plays the part of the half-irish italian who breaks into the business through a cab stand and pizza shop. The idea that his movie is based on a novel changes the layout, but also …

   looove this movie. can play it  again and again. love that it is based on true events of course. its hard to make a true story entertaining and with a semi happy ending. but of course martin Scorsese never fails at making good movies.  ray liotta's character Hill wants to be a gangsta since he was a kid. admiring the power that those men had while his father is trying to keep him from heading in that direction. well his father can't do much after he becomes aware that …

Phenominal mobster movie based on real life gangster Henry Hill's mafia experiences. Borrows practically nothing from The Godfather movies and creates it's own memorable legacy. A classic in everyway. I often find myself watching it twice in a row.

Be prepared for the violence. Otherwise, it is one of the best black comedies out there.

What can I say about this film other than it is my favorite film of all-time. Liotta, Pesci and DeNiro are excellent together. A lot of the supporting cast ended up in The Sopranos. Based on Henry Hill's story Wise Guy.
