Great direction, good setting, a surprisingly impressive performance from Stone and the always good teaming of De Niro and Pesci, keep this three-hour tale interesting. A couple of major quips. The film is way too long. Considering the brutal subject matter, it should have wrapped up a lot sooner. The other thing is that there are too many similarities with another Scorsese film, Goodfellas. Take Pesci's character for instance. As the short-tempered mob boss, he's no different than the short-tempered hit man in the other film. Still, Pesci is so good in this type of role, I didn't really care too much. It's still worth going to see for De Niro, Pesci and especially Stone's performances. The camera work is excellent.
