July 12, 2018
By treating its murderous subject as an unambiguous hero, it does what gangster films have been falsely accused of doing for decades: glorifying mobsters (Broad Street Review)
Full Review | Original Score: 0/5
July 2, 2018
A comically terrible imitation of a biopic, directed by Kevin Connolly with all the flair and nuance of a movie-within-a-movie on 'Entourage.'
July 1, 2018
In a few years I imagine movie fans will at least appreciate it as a camp classic in the tradition of "Mommy Dearest."
June 29, 2018
From its first moments until the end credits appear, this movie thrashes about for a unifying idea. In between, there is miserably bad acting and confusing editing.

Gotti might be exactly the mob movie we deserve.
June 28, 2018
Woefully incoherent.

Travolta is better than the movie around him. Kevin Connolly's directing career? Fuggedaboutit.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
June 22, 2018
He looks distractingly terrible at every stop...You never forget that you are watching John Travolta playing John Gotti every time.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/10
June 22, 2018
It's more run-of-the-mill than it is colossally misguided.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.2/10
June 22, 2018
Much of the action takes place in what looks to be the constantly redressed basement of an Elks lodge.
June 22, 2018
After whirling through three different titles, four directors and 44 producers, John Travolta's bungled biopic is an unmitigated disaster.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10
June 19, 2018
This is the first movie about a mob boss I've ever seen that takes the viewpoint of, "He got a raw deal."
June 19, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4

'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.
June 16, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
June 16, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: D-
June 16, 2018
It's not a good movie. But the blame can't be laid at its star's Ferragamo-shod feet.
Full Review | Original Score: C
