Jimmy (Robert de Niro) and Tommy (Joe Pesci) can do whatever they want. They are members of the New York neighborhood mafia, do not have to be considerate and earn a lot of money.

"GoodFellas - Three Decades in the Mafia" is a very well told and true story and with the right cast for it. all positions are well filled! the film manages with little action and still manages to stay interesting even if the tension factor is only pushed up towards the end!
