Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review Simultaneously fascinating and repellent, "Goodfellas" is Martin Scorsese's colorful but dramatically unsatisfying inside look at Mafia life in 1955 - 80 New York City. Commercial prospects for the overlong release appear relatively modest, and noisy bloodletting is likely to take place between warring critical camps...Scorsese's intent here, to show how a life of brutal crime could look compelling to an Irish-Italian kid whose sordid upbringing hasn't prepared him for anything better, is undercut by the offputting, opaque characterization of Ray Liotta. Sympathy is not the issue here, empathy is.

Review The movie did well upon its release, but its longevity is what makes it a classic. As actor Joe Pesci points out, not a week goes by that the movie isn't on cable somewhere, and many of its scenes - and even its epic steadicam shots - have become legendary. Simply put, it is one of the most perfect movies ever made, so much so that the American Film Institute honored it as one of the top 100 films of all time...When you first watch GoodFellas, you don't necessarily realize that you're watching a classic, a masterpiece. The film is such good entertainment, so powerful and fast-paced, that it leaves no room for a viewer to sit back and contemplate; the audience is engaged with the movie and the characters from beginning to end.
