Critics Reviews

Rolling Stone
Martin Scorsese scores again with his gritty, kinetic adaptation of Nicolas Pileggi's best-selling "Wiseguy."
Full review
by: Jeremy Beday
TV Guide
Scorsese's rich tapestry is both broader in scope and more detailed than a mere recounting of the events in the trio's life of crime.

Perhaps the best ganster film I've seen... so far.
I was very skeptical before watching GoodFellas, because I'm not a Scorsese fan... (or at least I wasn't before watching this movie) but even I'll admit, he out did himself with this one. I generally don't like the violent gory stuff, but it works...

The best Gangster film of all time
When a man was born to be a gangster he rises in the Italian mob between the 1960s to the 1980s. A film about various characters lives, money, greed, sex and downfall. Martin Scorsese's bold direction with a flawless script makes this to be an...

This film deserves all 5 stars, except that I'm deeply uninterested in gang movies. It is a perfect piece of work.

Something must be wrong with me, because I wasn't that into 'Goodfellas'. Sure, it's well shot, well acted, well everything. But hey--I didn't care about Liotta's character. I wasn't rooting for him. I wasn't rooting against him. I just didn't care....

Made me wanna be a gangster!
I think Scorsese should have won his Oscars for this one rather than for The Departed (though what's important is that he finally won them...). A masterpiece gangster film, captivating from the very beginning, this is the rise and fall theme at its...
