Everyone’s Saying The Same Thing About Robert De Niro In The Irishman

The Irishman


The Irishman finally debuted on Netflix this week after two months of being in select theatres around the world for a short time.

Despite the 3-hour long running time, the film has been a raging success among critics and general film viewers alike, but one thing has been distracting viewers, and it’s to do with one of the main characters.

Fans can’t stop pointing out how distracting Robert De Niro’s eyes are in the film, saying that his piercing blue retinas ‘remind them of a cyborg’ and that they’re ridiculously ‘freaky’ when he’s playing the mob man in the film.

Since coming out in the cinemas, the film has received rave reviews – with some people saying it is even one of Martin Scorcese’s best films in the most recent years.

The cast included the top billing of Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Al Pacino. All three have been tipped to receive an Oscar nomination when the awards come back around in the new year.
