"Brash and brilliant"

— Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

"The performances by everyone are stunning, standout."

— Desson Thomson, Washington Post

"No finer film has ever been made about organized crime."

— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"Scorsese's fast, violent, stylish mobster movie is a return to form."

— Geoff Andrew, Time Out

"Complex, volatile, ironic and disquieting, Scorsese's Goodfellas is a masterly achievement in intense observation."

— Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter

"Goodfellas is a tour de force that brilliantly evokes both the seductive glamour and moral degradation of organised crime."

— Neil Smith,

"All of the performances are first-rate; Pesci stands out, though, with his seemingly unscripted manner. GoodFellas is easily one of the year`s best films. [1990]"

— Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune

"Definitive, sky-high Scorsese, and the one towards which all his subsequent films have been reaching, Goodfellas is, put bluntly, the best movie of the director's career."

— Kevin Maher, Times (UK)

"One remains detached from the characters, but Scorsese succeeds in smashing all the foolishly romantic myths about the mob with this shocking, vigorously honest portrait of a slick yuppie gangster who couldn't stand being 'an average nobody.'"

— Kathleen Carroll, New York Daily News
