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

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.

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.

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

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.
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.

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

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

Admittedly, Travolta, who produced, is sure having fun. What ham wouldn't? Chewing on the scenery like it was a meatball hero, he swaggers around in shiny suits and silver wigs, barking orders.

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.

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
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.

It's almost laughable to see this iconic star trying so hard on behalf of a movie that is so clearly compromised in its intentions.
