I've tried to watch Casino 4 times... 4 TIMES!! It's been a while since i watched Goodfellas (which is great) but i'm not here to compare it with that (albeit they are very similar films).

Casino relies on an awful narration throughout the film which is tiring to listen to. It never stops to let a scene breathe and let the characters do the talking, the film is too detached!

Nowt interesting, it's done before, and i'm not going to waste 3 hours of my life trying to finish something i know i won't enjoy in the end.

THIS FILM IS PANTS FAM. Byeeeee.

great but we already have Goodfellas so it feels unnecessary to me.

Yet another 'mobster' related film of greed, money, illegal activities and psychotic driven tendencies to violence by director Martin Scorsese.
Like GoodFellas some five years previously the Scorcese casting fraternity returns with regulars Robert De Niro as casino 'manager' Sam Rothstein and Joe Pesci as more Mafioso Nicky Santaro.
The story is based at the operation of one of the casinos in Las Vegas. A cash cow that ultimately ends up with the Mafia in Kansas City.
Intertwined in the story is Sharon Stone as prostitute/substance misuser Ginger McKenna who marries Rothstein and whose gradual descent into marriage split/attempted kidnap of Rothstein's daughter is one strand of the collapse of the then successful casino operation.
Other factors are the strict Las Vegas authorities that refuse at first Santaro and then Rofstein employment in the gambling industry.
The downfall of the operation forms the backdrop to the end of the film and some pretty gruesome deaths even by my standards of film viewing!
Scorsese delivers yet again. It may not quite live up to the standards of 1990s GoodFellas but certainly is still one of the best films of the decade.
Scorsese 'viewers' will be aware that his films are quite long in duration but many plot points would be missed if they were edited.
Stick with his films and don't lose your concentration is my advice.
If I found one criticism it was the Joe Percy character Santoro who almost replicated his GoodFellas role as a pretty nasty mobster whose attitude was he would rather kill you with three bullets to the skull rather than one.
I'm glad I watched and my Scorsese tour continues albeit with a few coffees to keep me going!

What nobody else seems to mention is how this movie is bang on to what actually happened with the stardust casino in vegas. Compared to goodfellas which very loosely follows henry hills actual life story. Most of what happens in casino actually happened. I guess goodfellas too but they skip so many stories with goodfellas where as if you research the story of casino that is pretty much the true story. With ginger and the spilottro brothers, aka nicky and brother dominic. Thats what i love about this movie is hpw everything is true. The FBI even actually had to land their plane on rosenthals (rothsteins) golf course ?? only flaw really in the story is when the brothers are beat to death that actually happened in a basement at a hunting lodge the mob owned and then they were strangled and brought to a cornfield. Also spilottro actually became a made man for squashing that guys head in the vice. Great movie though if you know mob history.

Puntaje Original: 6.5

Con una poderosa historia y soberbio trabajo de producción, Casino se ve deslucida por su innecesaria narración.

A wonderful and spectacular movie from the great director Martin Scorsese. The movie has great setting, story and actors and it is a holy grail for Scorsese and mafia fans. As In Goodfellas I find the De Niro and Pesci combo fantastic and takes hold of you all the way through.

Brilliant mob movie in Las Vegas, all actors on top form!

Impressive for the first hour but dull every following moment. This movie lacks a connection with its audience namely because there is not one character that we as film-viewers care about. Its similar to Goodfellas but not as good which basically makes it a less imaginative sequel covering the same path traveled in Scorcese's previous works.

Sharon Stone alone is worth the price of admission.

Complete with all the typical attributes that make a Scorsese film unique, the film is quieter film than Goodfellas with strong acting but a pace that sometimes takes it time. Stone, De Niro, and Pesci, of course, are all flawless.

Martin Scorsese's "Casino" is an intense, gritty and captivating film that tells a fascinating true story. The film offers an insightful look at the history of Mafia in Las Vegas. Scorsese directs the film using energetic camerawork, fantastic performances and a sharp screenplay. Robert De Niro delivers a brilliant performance as a powerful casino owner. With charisma and a commanding presence, De Niro gives one of his finest performances to date. Joe Pesci is amazing in the role of a brutal and violent Mafia boss. Although his character is utterly terrifying, you can't take your eyes off him. Sharon Stone is also terrific though her role is only minor. At nearly three hours, "Casino" is a long film that drags towards the end. Although it may not rank among Scorsese's best films such as "Goodfellas", "Casino" is still worth seeing. It's not a bad way to spend three hours especially if you're a fan of Martin Scorsese's films.

Solid but by the numbers crime epic that isn't really bad but never reaches the heights of 'Goodfellas', the filmmaker's previous masterpiece. The cast is good across the board, with De Niro & Pesci able to play these characters in their sleep. The standout, though, is Sharon Stone as Ace's troublesome wife, Ginger, who can't be satisfied even when she scores the jackpot. Behind the camera Scorcese crafts a nice crime epic that mostly tells how mob lost Las Vegas, but doesn't quite hit the point across. Like the book by Nicolas Pileggi, it is by the numbers and only touches on how the mafia built & shaped Las Vegas, such has bringing in big name acts or modernizing sports betting. He also doesn't point out how the mob losing Vegas was inevitable, as gambling & prostitution being legal made it impossible for them to operate against legitimate businesses & corporations, though he does point out that once mob violence started growing, it accelerated the process. Scorcese once again doesn't sugar coat the mafia, showing them for the brutal thugs that they were (what happens to the principle characters is downright sickening), and despite it's oppressive length of 3 hours, remains mostly enjoyable throughout. Overall, a good crime film but in no way a great one.

Mais uma obra Martin Scorsese, dessa vez como nas outras ele usa a ideia dos "gangsters" mas agora nos Casinos. O De Niro é simplesmente fantástico com seu papel, ele faz o personagem Sam Ace, que tem uma construção muito boa, a Sharon como Ginger faz uma atuação também muito boa, mostra oque o dinheiro faz com as pessoas a deixando-as malucas, o Joe Pesci que faz o Nicky, é um personagem perturbado que não se importa com nada nem com ninguém, isso fica bem claro no começo do filme. A trilha sonora do filme tem uma pegada muito boa de época musicas classicas são facilmente conhecidas aqui. O trabalho de câmera e sua fotografia parece ficar melhor com cada filme que o Scorsese faz, o filme é muito grande 3 hrs de duração!, precisava? bom, não necessariamente, por mais que seja tudo bem contado e sem complicações eu achei que o roteiro tem um problema de continuação, ficam repetindo coisas muitas vezes no 2° ato. Em geral mais uma obra do cinema feita pelo Martin, que manda muito bem em sua direção.
Nota: 8.8

Great movie a true classic!

O filme dá a dimensão de quão genial Scorsese é. Uma fonte da qual beberam à exaustão, por exemplo, os irmãos Coen. Talvez soe como heresia, mas, na minha opinião, Casino é tremendamente superior a Goodfellas.

This movie didn't appeal to me at all. The movie is very stressful to watch. It has none of the glamour or feel good moments of a gangster flick. It has none of the good dialouge and humour a gangster flick should have. It does have all of the stress and awfulness with no redeeming features and is too much to bear. Sharon Stone's character is practically 2-D she has such little depth. The entire film is narrated. Some narration here and there can really lift a film but to narrate basically the entire 3hr run time suggests the movie isn't interesting enough to stand on it's own. There is no real substance to this plot it's just 3 main themes of a plot which is then dragged out erroneously into 3 acts.
