GoodFellas – With violent behaviour, vicious characters and explicit language throughout. There are multiple scenes that involve terrorizing innocent people, brutal beatings and graphic killing. There was several gun shots to the head, excessive alcohol and drug use, adultery/cheating lying and corruption. GoodFellas in my opinion, is the most realistic “Gangster”/mob-mafia in the history of film. I’m sorry to admit I enjoyed the entire 146 min.
Favorite Quote: Henry Hill: [narrating] For as long as I can remember I always wanted to be a gangster. To me that was better than being president of the United States. To be a gangster was to own the world.
Final Thoughts: 5/5 – GoodFellas had it all. 1) It was a True Story, 2) The Characters, 3) The Soundtrack, 4) The Star power, 5) The greatest director in film. (Scorsese) I’m going to be completely honest with everyone. I felt a connection with Henry Hill (Liotta) This movie made me want to live the life of a gangster! I wanted to be a wise guy! I wanted to be a good fella.
