Porrello felt uncomfortable approaching Hensleigh, but did so anyway. Porrello said to him: Critical reception[ edit ] Kill the Irishman received mixed-to-positive reviews from film critics.
Giving the film a positive review, Mike LaSalle, of the San Francisco Chroniclesaid; "What makes this film special and memorable is the character of Danny Greene, who is not the usual neighborhood hoodlum you see in movies, the kind who gets in deep and gradually loses his soul". He criticized it for jumping through different events in a "jerky fashion", but summed up the review by calling it a "movie with a lot of meat on the bone, even if some of it is tough or stringy.
It's not fancy, but it's always tasty". Clubhad similar views; saying "the biggest problem" with the film "isn't that it rips off Goodfellas", but that plenty of "good films" have "ripped it off well". There are certain movies that serve as a standard bearer for a genre — a high water mark that filmmakers always try to hit, but seem to always come up short.
To me, I think Martin Scorsese 's Goodfellas is that type of film for the gangster genre. In the 21 years since the film was released, so many filmmakers have tried so hard to copy Goodfellas' success, and so few have gotten even close to capturing the magic that Scorsese did in one of his very best films.
The 21 years have been littered with a bunch of pale imitations. To that list, you can add Jonathan Hensleigh's Kill the Irishman, which wants so desperately to be Goodfellas, and comes up so very, very short. Scott Tobias said the directing "doesn't do much beyond filling in the template".
He noted that Hensleigh was telling the "true-life tale" of the mob's decline in Cleveland, but also said that "every character and setpiece felt like it fell off a truck".
