This is the first movie about a mob boss I've ever seen that takes the viewpoint of, "He got a raw deal."

The pace drags; the sporadic violence fails to either titillate or disgust.
June 19, 2018
Even the most liberally tempered expectations cannot explain the extent and scope of the disaster here, the sheer lack of basic cinematic competence.

'Gotti' (alternate title: 'Gotti: I'm Walkin' Heah!') feels exactly like it was directed by a grown man who owns a framed 'Scarface' poster.

Gotti tries too hard to cram too much information into a small space, and you come away learning almost nothing about the man, other than the filmmakers feel he was a pretty stand-up guy.

You might think this sounds hilariously bad. It must be so bad it's kind of good, right? Wrong. Gotti is not remotely fun, even ironically.

Travolta clearly put in great effort to play John Gotti, but he's stuck in an incomprehensible mess of a movie that was shot like an uncomprehending knock-off of a Martin Scorsese gangster epic.

It's hard to say for certain what defines a truly great biopic, but it's significantly easier to observe that Gotti is far from being one among them.

It's not a good movie. But the blame can't be laid at its star's Ferragamo-shod feet.

I'd rather wake up next to a severed horse head than ever watch "Gotti" again.

Starring in this mobster biopic that deserves to get whacked is an offer Travolta should have refused. Insane testimonials from Gotti supporters at the end are as close as this s---show will ever get to good reviews.

Gotti is a connect-the-dots disaster -- the don's greatest hits, so to speak -- without discernible theme or cohesive narrative.

There's not really a story here. It's more a series of recognizable scenes from any number of gangster movies...

When Gotti tells viewers, speaking directly to the camera at film's end, that they'll never see another man like him, an attorney should really spring up and object that the statement assumes facts not in evidence.

Closing reportage of everyday New Yorkers brashly extolling Gotti's virtues upon his death, painting him, without any irony, as some kind of local hero, pretty much tells you where this picture's coming from.
June 15, 2018
That the long-gestating crime drama Gotti is a dismal mess comes as no surprise. What does shock is just how multifaceted a dismal mess it is.
June 15, 2018
Travolta is obviously having grand time playing the stereotypical goombah, and...it's hard to take your eyes off him. A pity, then, that the movie as a whole is such a shapeless mess.

June 15, 2018
While Travolta has his moments, the woefully uneven film too often settles for mobster stereotypes rather than providing meaningful insight into its subject.
June 15, 2018
There are 44 credited producers on the picture (good. lord.), and not one person had the nerve to question just what kind of derivative, borderline nonsensical film was being made.

He may have been a murderer, but even Gotti deserved better than this.
