This film is about life of a notorious mafia. When he was a child, Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) has dreamed of becoming a gangster. He admired the Lucchese gangster family. In 1955, Henry and his friend Tommy DeVito (Joe Pesci) left school to work for the Lucchese family. Tycoon Paul Cicero and Jimmy Conway (Robert De Niro), his assistant, gradually trained Henry to become the notorious mafia. So that when he grew up, Henry became a professional gangster.
One remains detached from the characters, but Scorsese succeeds in smashing all the foolishly romantic myths about the mob with this shocking, vigorously honest portrait of a slick yuppie gangster who couldn't stand being "an average nobody."
For its swaggering energy, the heart-in-your-throat pacing and for some of the most memorable, most imitated scenes in mafia movie history, this must rank as one of Scorsese's finest films, if not the best.
Spanning thirty years and running two and a half hours, the film bristles with the violent passion, howitzer wit and virtuoso style that made Scorsese's reputation with the gangster drama Mean Streets in 1973.
