John Gotti (John Travolta) fought to become leader of the infamous Gambino crime family while he nurtured his relationship with his son John Gotti Jr. (Spencer Rocco Lofranco) and showed him how to handle business to the dismay of his wife Victoria (Kelly Preston). Through devastation, court cases, and prison, Gotti boasted of his steadfast loyalty. Stacy Keach also stars. Directed by Kevin Connolly.~Caroline Griswold
Travolta was an excellent choice to play John Gotti. Having said that though, the story line kind of wanders around. But there is also some real footage of the real John Gotti and some of his gang members. Also, I bought the Blue-Ray at a discounted price which I thank Best Buy for having it available at a discounted price.
Travolta has the personal experience of losing a son. It was touching to see him draw from that. It's just too bad there wasnt enough time to focus on that, or any other single thing, for more than a few minutes.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
good remake of a famous character movie
I am a big fan of travolta. If you enjoy his acting you will like this movie.
John Travolta does a fantastic job playing the role of Gotti. I think the movie is choppy and could flow a lot better. You have to know a lot about John Gotti’s life on the front end before you watch this or it won’t be that good.
