Haven't seen it yet but can anyone tell me how this Sheeran killed Hoffa theory stacks up? There are so many claims with this and MLK that it's hard for me take any seriously.

It was solid. Dragged quite a bit, but a good watch.

It is. I donít understand why people are complaining? What did they expect?

Itís still very well made and the cast is beyond Iconic.

You would watch Expendables 10, Deberg. Tell it true....

It's slow. If it had been a theatrical release, there would be an hour of cellulose acetate lying on the floor. It had some good moments. Will watch again to stitch together details.

You coulda' divided it up. That's what we did. The so wanted to see it. I'm not a big mob movie fan. So I didn't care for it at first, but as it proceeded I did like it. It's based on a true story and this Irishman claims he knocked off Hoffa on his deathbed. However, there are others that say his claim is not true.

I couldn't understand how they could take two old men, DeNiro and Pacino making a movie in old age, being able to do flashbacks where they look much younger. So I looked it up and found out their faces were all digitally altered to look younger. Amazing!

The movie is based on a book told by Sheeran.
Because Sheeran's stories are being debunked. :-)

I saw it in a theater. It was boring/disappointing.

Being debunked by people who have 20 different theories about how he died themselves. He was chopped up and put in sausage. No wait he was buried alive under a horse barn. No wait he was dumped in a landfill owned by the mob... etc, etc.

Scorsese himself said it wasnt important to have a historically accurate account of what happened because we'll never know for sure. It's just a compelling story told by an insider and ya it's probably fabricated by someone trying to sell a book but thats the same story as the rest of the guys who probably have some knowledge of what happened. It's the Black Dahlia, Zodiac, Jack the Ripper.

Bruce Springsteen did a show last week at the Stone Pony and one of buddys who was there commented on how we are all old and can't outrun Father Time no matter how hard we try.
BTW, Eddie Van Zandt has a cameo in this movie too

Possibly, due to what DeNiro's character claimed in the movie, that only parts of a hit are revealed to each player involved so no one knows the whole truth about it.

I just finished watching this and I was impressed. I like the way the story came together.

It was much more about the whole interaction between the mob and the teamsters than a movie of violence.

Al Pacino was probably my least favorite as he has become a caricature of himself as he is over the top and the last 10 roles all seem like he is doing the same thing. He didn't come across as Hoffa in anyway to me. Bad casting on that one role.

I thought Pesci was great and played his part very subdued.

Also a lot of this action took place a lot further in the past than it came across in the movie. It was the early to mid 50's into the late 70s. It felt like mid to late 60's to early 80s.

Overall I give it an 8.5-9 out of 10

Obviously someone knows the whole truth about it. Just one problem, that person probably ate a couple bullets to the head a few years later.
