I did think Pacino looked a little odd but then maybe there was an effort to have him look a little more like Hoffa.
One gets the feeling that this will be Scorsese's last "mob" type picture, and if so it's a strong and fitting way to exit the style.
This isn't Scorsese falling back on a genre he's comfortable with, it's Scorsese being reflective on his career.
