Simultaneously quite watchable and passionless.

The result, sadly, is that contradiction in terms, a dull Scorsese movie.

The result? Plot plethora.

Overlong and tedious crime drama epic. A kinetic behind-the-scenes look at the Vegas casinos.

After coming out gangbusters in its first and finest hour, the 180-minute movie loses all its chips in the remaining two.

It's an ambitious film, but also a scattered, unfocused one.

This bloated three-hour misfire this is a major fumble.

Casino is left king-high by a wobbily high-heeled Sharon Stone and by an especially inept script and questionable direction.

Scorsese may be flailing here, but Scorsese flailing is more formidable than most directors at the top of their form.

It's not the actors' fault that no one is able to break through the film's gorgeous but chilly surface. You watch Casino with respect and appreciation, reveling in its documentary sense of detail.

Violent story of vice and virtue not for kids.

Casino is Scorsese's 'messy drawer' of a movie; disconnected scenes and stylistic odds and sods... it might be his most idiosyncratic.

...minor Scorsese ... but in every other sense it is a major film.

Martin Scorsese's fascinating new film Casino knows a lot about the Mafia's relationship with Las Vegas.

In every way -- from the fantastic sets, rich dialogue, and unapologetic violence to the well-portrayed characters and themes of loyalty and betrayal -- Casino is pure Scorsese.

Scorsese proves once again to be a true master of mob drama.

Scorsese and Pileggi might be traveling over similar ground here, but they do it so well and so entertainingly, I doubt that any of their fans will really mind.
