A man seeks vengeance against his former lawyer. This is unlike anything else in Scorsese’s body of work. Bringing Out The Dead and Shutter Island are just as dark in places but whilst any lack of realism in those two movies (SPOILER ALERT for shutter island) is due to the unreliability of the narrator, this movie isn’t told from any characters point of view and is still very far fetched in places. De Niro is mostly good but he loses his grip on his performance towards the end and goes a bit over the top for me. The whole thing seems a little over done, the running time, the acting and definitely the story which has so many unrealistic moments. Possibly my least favourite Scorsese film but still watchable and actually very good in place.
