Woefully incoherent.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Gotti might be exactly the mob movie we deserve.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

The pace drags; the sporadic violence fails to either titillate or disgust.
May 16, 2018
The problem is that it's not really anything. This is a strange thing to say about a notorious mob boss who was locked up for murder, but John Gotti deserved better.

Travolta is better than the movie around him. Kevin Connolly's directing career? Fuggedaboutit.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
June 22, 2018
It's more run-of-the-mill than it is colossally misguided.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.2/10
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
June 14, 2018
Aside from the wardrobe and the makeup, "Gotti" falls far short of capturing period-piece details and never immerses us in the era.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
May 29, 2018
A stale biopic filled with stereotype and uninspired filmmaking, Gotti also proves to be a disturbing example of mafia hero-worship almost equating to propaganda.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
May 16, 2018
The film is pretty terrible: poorly written, devoid of tension, ridiculous in spots and just plain dull in others.
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
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 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 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
