Martin Scorsese's violent, true-life gangster epic which follows Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) as he rises through the ranks of the Mafia. Upon turning FBI informant to help pay for his drug addiction, Hill recalls how he got started in the Mob following the $6 million robbery of a Lufthansa cargo at a New York airport. Hill and his partners, Jimmy Conway (Robert De Niro) and Tommy De Vito (Joe Pesci), went on to rise through the ranks of the Mafia over three decades, eventually eliminating Paul Cicero (Paul Sorvino), the neighbourhood godfather who originally took Hill under his wing. Joe Pesci won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Note: The product is a 2 sided disc so after 70 mins when disc cuts out it needs to be flipped over and played on the other side for the rest of the film.
Martin Scorsese's 1990 masterpiece GoodFellas immortalises the hilarious, horrifying life of actual gangster Henry Hill (Ray Liotta), from his teen years on the streets of New York to his anonymous exile under the Witness Protection Program. The director's kinetic style is perfect for recounting Hill's ruthless rise to power in the 1950s as well as his drugged-out fall in the late 1970s; in fact, no one has ever rendered the mental dislocation of cocaine better than Scorsese. Scorsese uses period music perfectly, not just to summon a particular time but to set a precise mood. GoodFellas is at least as good as The Godfather without being in the least derivative of it. Joe Pesci's psycho improvisation of Mobster Tommy DeVito ignited Pesci as a star; Lorraine Bracco achieves a career-defining performance as the love of Hill's life; and every supporting role, from Paul Sorvino to Robert De Niro, is a miracle.See all Product description

The image gets you closer than ever to this incredible film with a nice grain structure and obvious improved colour and clarity over the previous versions. The sound is equally improved. Nice.
I'll admit that the sections regarding Harry's home life weren't as interesting as the actual crime parts and this movie isn't directly about the mafia (as Harry explains, he's not allowed to join because of his half-Irish heritage) so it was a little disappointing in that regard but it's a very minor niggle and doesn't affect it overall.
Blu-ray release looks good on picture although not a massive leap in terms of sound due to the fact that the movie is generally dialogue driven and there isn't a lot of action or ambiance. I'd still say it's worth the extra though.
Ray Liotta is superb as the main character and storyteller, as are Joe Pesci and Robert DeNiro in the main supporting roles as his violent gangster buddies. But unlike most other ganster films the women also shine, and are far more than merely token roles. Lorraine Bracco plays the gangsters wife brilliantly, and really brings to life the excitement and fear experienced when married to a mobster.
Some other reviewers are upset about the 2-sided disc setup of the DVD, this didnt bother me, i simply got up, went to the DVD player and turned the disc round. Easy. What's the fuss is about!
