Rating Summary
The Irishman is certainly a work of cinema, however you want to define it. As a work of entertainment, it has enough drama and humor to keep viewers invested. Despite the impressiveness of its artistic accomplishments, it's not the greatest film of the year, nor is it Scorsese's best. And, yeah, it probably could have been shorter (the last half-hour has some beautiful moments but also really could have been tightened). Still, anyone with an interest in crime movies should find a lot to appreciate in this end of an era epic.

Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran is a former labor union official…and hitman who honed his killing skills in Italy during the Second World War. In old age, he recounts his life to a priest, and reveals the hits that defined his mob career with the Bufalino crime family. One story in particular is his part in the disappearance of his life-long friend, Jimmy Hoffa; the former president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, who mysteriously vanished in late July 1975 at the age of 62.
