Mob stories have always caught the interest of audiences all over the world. Whether it was from the time the cinema just began or moved from black & white to color, people do have a preference for a crime based movie.

One of the famous movies happened to be the Godfather trilogy that did set high expectations. Since then legendary movies like Donnie Brasco, Scarface & American gangster have given the audience exactly what they want i.e. pure adrenaline rush!

The Irishman released few days ago and was touted as an epic movie even before its release. The reasons being the director and the lead cast are legendary. Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci and have given us a dream team performance. If you’re not convinced yet, then we will give you 5 good reasons why you must watch “The Irishman” on Netflix.


26,400,000+ people have watched it

It is rare for mob movies whose stories are slow-paced to garner a lot of audience. But with “the Irishman”, records are being broken! As per the Netflix report, this movie has been watched worldwide by 26 million people within the first 7 days itself. As per their analysis, this number will cross the 40 million mark within the 1st month of its release!

What we like about The Irishman is that they’ve proved to everyone that content is more important than anything else. With good content and the right talent of actors, you can attract an audience from all over the world.


3.5-hour run time and still you’ll not be bored

When was the last time you watched a new movie that was more than 3 hours long and you never yawned? Sure few movies are released all year but usually, directors stick to anything less than 2.5 hours to have the complete attention of audiences.

What we like about the Irishman is that at 3.5 hours, it’s a lot of run time but their story is so powerful and with the climax, there’s never going to be a dull moment ever! So ensure that you watch this in one sitting and watch it at the theaters!


Scripted by Steven Zaillian

One thing that makes a movie super hit is built within the story writers. The scriptwriters are the soul of the movie and with good writers, you can make amazing movies. The scriptwriter here is none other than Steven Zaillian who has also scripted the Oscar-winning movie – Schindler’s List and The Night Of!

What we like about Steven is that he scripts compelling stories that are not just dry but is engaging and funny too! With his script, you won’t feel like you’re watching a 3.5-hour movie. It will feel like watching a gripping mob story that you don’t want to end!


The visual storytelling is a masterpiece by Martin Scorsese

Martin Scorsese over the years has been giving us epic and legendary movies! He’s a director that every lead actor in Hollywood wishes to work with at some point in their career. With “The Irishman” you will see astounding visual storytelling. You will enjoy watching how the plot unfolds and the pace of the movie too will be enjoyable!

What we like about Scorsese is how each choice he makes while directing has a purpose right from the editing to the pace and length of the picture. We can truly say that the work delivered by Martin Scorsese is indeed a piece of art!


Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci

No good movie is complete without the right set of actors. But when you add Premium level actors to the mix, you are bound to make a blockbuster. Just imagine, watching Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci in one movie sharing screen space! The mere thought can be overwhelming but these guys have performed way better than we could imagine.

What we like about “The Irishman” is that Pacino and De Niro have pulled off their roles so well that it looks like it’s just a simple act of rolling up their sleeves!
