Synopsis


Casino
The inner-workings of a corrupt Las Vegas casino are exposed in Martin Scorsese's story of crime and punishment. The film chronicles the lives and times of three characters: "Ace" Rothstein (Robert De Niro), a bookmaking wizard; Nicky Santoro (Joe Pesci), a Mafia underboss and longtime best friend to Ace; and Ginger McKenna (Sharon Stone, in a role she was born to play), a leggy ex-prostitute with a fondness for jewelry and a penchant for playing the field. Ace plays by the rules (albeit Vegas rules, which, as he reminds the audience in voiceover, would make him a criminal in any other state), while Nicky and Ginger lie, cheat, and steal their respective ways to the top. The film's first hour and a half details their rise to power, while the second half follows their downfall as the FBI, corrupt government officials, and angry mob bosses pick apart their Camelot piece by piece. ~ Jeremy Beday, Rovi

    One of the best mob movies ever made

    AARRGGHHH

    I bought this full screen version as a gift for a relative that doesn't have a wide screen TV. If you have a wide screen, buy the wide screen version. Casino is, simply put, one of the best mob movies ever made. Director Martin Scorsese has referred to Casino as something of a sequel to Good Fellas. The story line, of course, is not a sequel, but there are many of the same actors, including Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci. And, a younger Sharon Stone is perfect in the role of a high end, cocaine addicted, Vegas hooker/hustler. Many old school comedians also found their way into excellent small roles in this movie, including Don Rickles as the casino manager, Tommy Smothers as a corrupt Nevada senator, and Alan King as Teamsters boss Andy Stone. For any fan of mob movies, Martin Scorsese, or any of the actors, this movie is a must see.

    What feeble, pithy review can I offer about Scorsese's epic masterpiece that hasn't already been written? Anything that I could write would be mere child's play when conveying how brilliant and masterful "Casino" really is. Although I'll watch anything Scorsese creates, I've personally always preferred his grittier films about corruption and crime -- "Taxi Driver," "Good Fellas," and even "Casino," which is a crime film of a different type. The corruption of power and the seduction of riches here collide that ignite a powder keg of brutality and revenge that are unparalleled.

    Since i was young ive always been a fan of De Niro. Hands down one of the greatest actors. Mostly to gangster and mob films Dr Niro movies are never really dull. I've never seen "casino" but heard of it. I had the privilege of viewing this acting in this 1080p crisp video and audio and appreciate the film like no one ever had before bluray. I aim to own and see every Dr Niro film ever made.

    Right off the bat you have a great cast and of course a great director. Similar to Raging Bull and more so Goodfellas, this movie takes you through the era of a man's life where he is running a vibrant casino. Since it is Scorsese, you can expect dirty plot twists and plenty of scandals. I bought this for five dollars and it also came with the DVD, which is unusual for a movie released back then. Overall, I would say this is more than worth a watch for any fan of Scorsese, DeNiro, Pesci, or even a corrupt James Woods.

    It's hard to believe that it has been over 20 years now since this movie came out. Released 6 years after GoodFellas, many of the same cast reunite in this classic mob tale that is also based on a true story.. Without getting in to details, this is a great movie that should be owned by any mob movie lover. It's not a Godfather or even a Goodfellas, but it is still one of the all time greats! Highly recommended!!

    Highly quotable for one. You can watch it a bunch of times and it's still enjoyable. Any time Scorsese, deniro and pesci join forces you can expect a classic gangster film. Sharon Stone is great as well and James Woods is the perfect creep. I only give 5 stars for PERFECT films (in my opinion), but this one is close.

    Why oh why is this film not more famous? Maybe because some people think it's "not as good as" Goodfellas, or it treads somewhat over some of the same territory ... which is long saying Othello is not as good as Hamlet! No, this stands alone, and it's a grand story, told in a way that only movies can tell it, with great actors and technical crew under the loving guidance of a Master. This film will be rediscovered someday, but why wait? Beat the rush!

    I will just say right off the bat, this isn't as good as Good Fellas, but it is almost as good. Lol Too many great moments in this movie, I wouldn't know where to begin... I will say this though, Sharon Stones character kind of ruins this movie for me a little bit. Such a master piece, and then one crazy woman has to screw everything up!!! Highly recommended!!
