    They're using state of the art reverse aging CGI on this.

    Around 1995, that would have been one hell of a cast.

    I know how you feel. I grew up in a buggy coachwhip family and it will be a cold day in hell when I use an automobile to get to farmer's market.

    I believe this is about the great mobility scooter heist of 1995.

    Is this a movie where we relive enjoying bad Italian mafioso stereotypes without the guilt of acknowledging bad Italian mafioso stereotypes?

    Jackson: I just thought I'd at least get a call, Marty. I mean you even got Harvey in this one.
    Scorsese: But you don't have an "I" in your name. It just wouldn't work.
    Jackson: What?
    Martin Scorsese: It's too hard to explain.
    Jackson: But there's a goddamn L right in the middle, an L everyone knows, and it could be lowercase!
    Scorsese: <*waves hands, shakes head*>

    Frank Sheeran was not a man to cross or lie to.

    Few people have killed as long or as bold as he did.

    Some people said he just made the whole thing up. He was pretty much a nobody, but somehow he is Forrest Gump.

    He didn’t make it up, at least not a lot of it.

    They know that he is responsible for killing crazy Gallo in a sanctioned mob hit from the highest crime family in response for the attempted assasination of Joe Columbo.

    That order came from Carlo Gambino, the biggest monster of his era. He wouldn’t have hired a nobody to carry out such a high level hit.

    That doesn’t even get into his known relationships with Ray Patriartica and numerous other mob bosses.

    He was at a minimum an elite mafia hitman that was working for the largest mobsters in America and Italy at the time.

    Did he kill Hoffa? I don’t know, but the FBI had him as a top suspect.
