More than one reviewer has called the film a "masterpiece".

We obviously don't really need to say this, but Martin Scorsese knows how to put a movie together.

However, his most recent film - 2016's Silence - wasn't what anyone would call one of his best, and prior to that we had 2013's The Wolf Of Wall Street, and 2011's Hugo, so his CV of late has been eclectic, interesting, but not always amazing.

So even though he was returning to the world of gangsters with The Irishman, and reuniting with De Niro and Pesci (after Goodfellas and Casino), and bringing in Pacino for good measure, there might have been some minor concerns that just because all of the ingredients were in place, the final product wouldn't necessarily be amazing.

Those fears can now be put to rest, with the movie getting its first screening at the New York Film Festival today, and the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive:

Meanwhile, one of the three leading actors is getting a special shout out for his performance:

So... yeah, we're pretty excited now.

As we reported earlier, the movie will begin streaming on Netflix from Wednesday 27 November, but will be available to see on the big screen across Ireland from Friday 8 November.
