I remember very well, I saw this one when it came out. I was about 15-16 years old back then and I thought it was pretty good but it didn't really blow me away. However, I rewatched it again 15 years later and, this time, it really hit me. Indeed, this time, I thought it was really awesome. I guess the only flaw it has is that he came out after 'The Godfather' and, above all, 'Goodfellas'. Indeed, I guess many people dismiss it as yet another gangster flick directed by Scorsese, starring again Robert de Niro and Joe Pesci. Actually, it is something rather different. First of all, this time around, De Niro has the lead and delivers an impressive performance, as usual. I was also impressed by Sharon Stone who a gave also solid performance but, unfortunately, it is probably the only movie she made during her whole career that I really appreciated (ok, 'Total Recall' was really awesome but she just had a small part). What a shame that Scorsese and De Niro don't make anymore movies together... Anyway, there is here some great directing, great acting and a fascinating story. To conclude, I think it is a great flick, one of the most underated ones directed by Scorsese and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
