Goodfellas is such a good movie that I wish I could rate it than 5 stars. I wish I could rate this movie 10 stars but since I can't do that I'll will have to settle for 5 stars. This movie is a classic and is not only a great crime thiller but also a great movie under any genre. Goodfellas features the amazing acting of Robert Deniro.
Goodfellas is a 1990 American crime film directed by Martin Scorsese. It is a film adaptation of the 1986 non-fiction book Wiseguy by Nicholas Pileggi, who co-wrote the screenplay with Scorsese. The film follows the rise and fall of Lucchese crime family through the eyes of a Lucchese associate, Henry Hill. The movie covers the period of time from 1955 to 1980. The movie features the great acting of Ray Liotta, Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, Lorraine Bracco, and Paul Sorvino. Goodfellas was nominated for the Academy Award in the following categories: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Film Editing, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Supporting Actor (Joe Pesci, who won).
I enjoyed this movie and would definitely recommend this set.
Thank you for reading my review.
