How accurate is this movie?

Accurate for what an associate or soldier does 24/7, but not really accurate. They make Henry Hill look like a guy that got screwed over, which he was in real life which they didn't not put those key things into the movie. Most mob guys didnt really think nothing of Hill especially after he didn't look out for Varios kid at the restaurant where Tommy Lucchese and that family higher ups ate usually once a week. Varios boy messed up and physically assaulted the owner one day, the owner was related to a Capo in the Lucchese family and a Capo in the Colombo family. Paul was trying to get his son made, but he did not blame Henry as Hill was running errands for Paulie that day. Henry opened up a restaurant and bar, but the location was easy for members of Luchese, Gambino, Colombo, and Bonanno families to show up for a quick bite and before long it soon became a front for Paul Vario, Hill had to kick up more to Vario, thus turned to a mid-level drug dealer, after that many members of other families didn't like showing up there in case junk agents were watching the place. Tommy had sex with Karen a few times, but she startled to sleep with Paul Vario so she didn't have to worry about money problems anymore. Tommy tried later to get with Karen and she told Vario about it, he was made but didn't not bring up, he also knew about Foxy and Billy Bats but kept his mouth shut until Tommy tried again with Karen and was holding out on Vario. So Vario tipped off Neil of the Gambino family and that was the end of Tommy. They didn't kill Henry when they had the chance cause both Vario and Conway thought vary little of him and did not think he would turn on them so fast. A lot of thing in the film was to give the audience some content they could relate to. Vario was not against drugs, just don't get caught. When those two were cleaning house, Hill was last on the list cause he did not partake in it in the heist, and only knew about it being planned because of Marty's mouth, which was also said in front of Bonanno and Colombo members who required a share as the Airport was their playground and Paul and Jimmy didn't give any money to those two crews after the heist. The movie painted Hill as sharp and smart, when in actuality he wasn't. Michael Franzese of the Colombo family safes Hills life years later when Hill lied to the guards while he was in Witness Protection about his true identity and they were placing him in general population and it was only Franzese who recognized Hill as Michael brother is a junkie and he had met Hill through Vic Orena that he told the captain who Hill really was cause their were a few guys in general population who would have known who Hill really was.

Wow! So it really wasn't very accurate. I saw that Hill died not to long ago. Did he really have daughters? If so, I hope they are ok now! Even though it wasn't accurate, I still like the actors and the story.
