Henry Hill is a small time gangster, who takes part in a robbery with Jimmy Conway and
Tommy De Vito, two other gangsters who have set their sights a bit higher. His two partners
kill off everyone else involved in the robbery, and slowly start to climb up through the
hierarchy of the Mob. Henry, however, is badly affected by his partners success, but will he
stoop low enough to bring about the downfall of Jimmy and Tommy?

Did You Know?
The studio was initially very nervous about the film due to its extreme violence and
language. The film reportedly received the worst preview response in the studio's history.
Scorsese said that "the numbers were so low it was funny". Nevertheless the film was
released without alteration to overwhelming critical acclaim, cementing Scorsese's reputation
as America's foremost film-maker. See more
Near the end, when Henry is driving around watching for the helicopter, a package of
Winston cigarettes is on the dashboard of his car. The scene is set in 1980, but the package
design was introduced in 1987. See more

Wanna Be a Wise guy?
12 April 2005 | by Guitarboi615 (United States) See all my reviews
One of the best Mafia movies I've ever seen. This and The Godfather are movies I must recommend if you like gangsters, wise guys, etc.
This movie is actually based on a true story. The real Henry Hill, who is the main star of this movie, actually said it was at least 90% true.
He than said it was probably 98% accurate. This movie expresses a lot of the gangster ways and how they really did things.
Summary: This is pretty much a biography on Henry Hill, who as a kid always wanted to be a gangster, and he actually worked for them. It
shows how a young kid grew up helping the mafia and becoming a mobster himself. This is a true story and really shows what being a wise
guy is all about.
Overall: Definitely a 10/10 movie. Really makes me want to be a wiseguy.
