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 ? The story of Irish-Italian American, Henry Hill, and how he lives day-to-day life as a member of the Mafia. Based on a true story, the plot revolves around Henry and his two unstable friends Jimmy and Tommy as they gradually climb the ladder from petty crime to violent murders. This film views the mob lives of three pivotal figures in the 1960's and 70's New York. Ray Liotta plays Henry Hill, a local boy turned gangster in a neighborhood full of the roughest and toughest. Joe Pesci plays Tommy Devito, a pure bred Italian gangster, who turns out to be Henry's best friend. Robert De Niro plays Jimmy Conway, the man who puts the two of them together, and runs some of the biggest hijacks and burglaries the town has ever seen. After an extended jail sentence, Henry must sneak around the back of the local mob boss, Paulie Cicero, played by Paul Sorvino, to live the life of luxury he has always dreamed of. In the end, the friends end up in a hell of a jam, and must do anything they can to save each other, and stay alive.


What can I say This movie is alot like the movie Mean streats, but with a higher budget. I read the book "Wise guy" and the movie follow the book well.When I read a book I have piture go threw my head of what I am reading, and this moive did this with out myself having to read the book again. Beliveable, and directed in the manner of the author telling the story.The art of story tell is a lost one with many the entertainment industry marketing for a public witha short attenion span, but in the world of Jerry Springer, and professional wrestling, where the product is directed at a 2 second attention span this moive cuts down the quick fix mentaliy of our time. This is a well crafted film, which has a story told and unravels in proper fourm.This is a nice break from factory made fourmulated moives where you can guess the script 10 minitues into the movie.Like the music industry where all the county music and dance music sounds the same, alot of movie go this route,this movie stands out from the repetition.
