Overall it was very good, Leo is very convincing playing a stupid person, De Niro fits into a Scorsese film like a comfortable glove, the direction and cinematography is expectedly top notch, and it's pretty engaging for about 75% of its runtime. However, it definitely starts to drag in the latter section. I feel like they could've trimmed it to around 2h 45min for theaters and saved this 3h 25min version for a home video director's cut. The ending is also a bit odd, it's like they suddenly realized the runtime maxed out and had to rush through the final points. Still, a solid 4/5 stars.
Also, the irony of showing trailers for The Marvels and Aquaman back-to-back in front of a Scorsese movie, LOL
