Not seen it yet, three and half hours is massive time for any movie.
Has anyone seen it yet?
(Netflix premiered it few nights back)

If it is anything else like Martin Scorsese films it has to be a classic.
The lineup looks amazing!!
I really do think this will be last time we see some of greatest actors of all time in one sitting.
Robert De Niro.
Al Pacino.
Joe Pesci.

Goodfellas comes to mind with this show.
Ment to be true story based around the mob.

Watched it last night and have to say been looking forward to it as I'm a huge fan of Martin Scorsese films, the best being
Goodfellas, this is utter pants, major disappointment and way too long. 👎

8.4 on I.M.D.B. from over 60,000 people is a great score these days. Sounds like they may have paid for vote's going off Hibbydave's comments :)

I am about one hour in. Up to now its ok. The story is very close to the truth as far as i can see. The demise of Cuba as a mob stronghold and the teamsters seem pretty close up to now. Maybe watching it in stages makes it better who knows. But if you ever read the godfather You find there was tons of stuff left out of the film but would it have made it better if it was longer? Again who knows.
