Martin Scorsese’s most recent schlock sees him tie up yet again with Hollywood veterans Robert De Niro and Al Pacino and has already garnered much praise from the those who have watched the movie in cinemas.
Based on the book I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt, Irishman tells the story of Frank Sheeran, a gangster, hitman and World War Two veteran.
The film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organised crime.
The movie shows Frank reflecting on his mobster career, with particular focus on the disappearance of his old friend and controversial union leader Jimmy Hoffa (Pacino)
The gangster thriller has been praised for its use of state-of-the-art technology.
Instead of casting younger actors to play the stars in their former years, the production team invested a heavy dose of the budget on sophisticated anti-ageing software, allowing De Niro and Pacino to relive their 30s again while flexing their acting chops.
