“Another Goodfellas”

published 28/09/2005

ProActing, direction, dialogue, plot

ConsViolent, Quite long

Casino is a Martin Scorsese epic. This really seems like one hell of a long film and it runs for about three hours. The film is somewhat similar in style to Goodfellas as it looks at the lives of mafia members that are towards the top of the hierarchy but are not yet the bosses. The film deals...

Constoo violent for some, tons of swearing

Having seen the epic Martin Scorcese fil Goodfellas (1990) I eagerly watched Casino in the late 90's, and was blown away!! That was VHS, the dvd (which I have here, with the deleted scene extras and documentaries about the real people behind the story) and especially the crisp blu-ray even...

“Scorsese does it again!!”

published 13/01/2006

Progood actors/actresses, great director, great story...

Consviolent, explicit language

One of Scorsese's best drama's starring two academy award winner actors who have previously shinned in films such as Goodfellas and Raging bull (De Niro and Joe Pesci). Arguably Casino is Sharon Stone's best performance as she was nominated for a "Best Actress in a Leading Role" academy award...

Manufacturer's product description

Martin Scorsese, one of America's most influential filmmakers, returns to the world of mobsters, greed, and excess that he explored so compellingly in 1990's GOODFELLAS. Set in the 1970s and revelling in the minute details of how Las Vegas casinos operate, the film chronicles the rise and fall of casino manager Ace Rothstein (Robert De Niro). As the king of his domain, Ace efficiently runs the business and regularly sends lots of cold cash to his bosses. Helping him keep the casino's employees and customers honest is his best friend, Nicky (Joe Pesci), a violent sociopath. Although Ace aims to run a relatively respectable casino, the volatile Nicky wants to take over the entire gambling mecca, and when Ginger McKenna (Sharon Stone), a seasoned Vegas hustler, enters the picture, Ace and Nicky's friendship is complicated even further. As drugs and alcohol become a bigger part of Ginger's life, all three are eventually brought down by their own greed and blind ambition. CASINO shares many similarities with GOODFELLAS, beginning with a script that was cowritten by Scorsese and Nicholas Pileggi. Regulars De Niro and Pesci are first rate once again as the dissimilar companions, but it is Stone who steals the show with her gruelling, intense performance.
