The premise of this film is so good. The premise is that Henry wants to be in the mob. He gets taken in under the wing of a leading mobster named Paulie, and he works with his associates Jimmy and Tommy. They then go around and rob places like Air France and Lufthansa. They get arrested a few times, and they get out a few times. In the end Tommy gets whacked, Henry goes free, and Paulie and Jimmy go to jail, after Henry rats them out.
The movie is non-stop mob scenes. It has cursing, drugs, murder, Italian heritage, and of course the best part, great, great actors. You have Ray Liotta as Henry, Robert De Niro as Jimmy, and Joe Pesci as Tommy.
As some side notes to this all, this is the second film I have covered to have Robert De Niro in it, and the third to have Joe Pesci in it. I have covered this movie, and A Bronx Tale, in Film Friday XVI that had both of them in it, but for Joe Pesci's third film, I also covered my favorite movie ever, My Cousin Vinny, way back in December of 2015, with Film Friday I.
I love this film so much, and it has such great quotable lines in the few clips that I am going to link down below. I hope that you all enjoy them!
