After what feels like an eternity, Martin Scorsese’s new film, The Irishman, has finally landed on Netflix and as you would expect, Twitter hype has arrived along with it. Shortly after the film dropped last week, eager fans flocked to social media to share their reactions and, as the critic reviews confirmed earlier this month, the wait was definitely worth it.
The film stars Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci, and Al Pacino. Set in the 1950s, it chronicles the true story of a Philadelphia mob helmed by WWII veteran, hustler, and hitman, Frank Sheeran (DeNiro), and the disappearance of legendary union boss, Jimmy Hoffa. Check out the trailer below.
Already, Twitter is full of reviews — potentially prompted by the below tweet from Action Bronson, who makes a cameo in the movie as an (uncredited) coffin salesman. Keep scrolling to find out what people have to say.
