1. It's TOO long!
2. I am sick of Scorsese's fascination with the Mafia...I almost wish someone would make HIM disappear so I don't have to bear yet another mob movie from him AND as other's have pointed out he has made this genre of movie before and MUCH better!
3. The old to young makeup NEVER works! Whereas the young to old is ALWAY more believable think Gary Oldman in Dracula or Kate Nelligan in The Prince Of Tides....
4. I feel like I have seen this performance by Pacino before, only he was in a uniform....boring!
I did stick through it to the end, but when the credits rolled I felt like I had just wasted my time! IF it wins ANY awards it should be for tedious and LONG!
I much prefer Scorsese when he steps away from his comfort zone... New York, New York, The Aviator and The Age Of Innocence....
