This was a sh*t show from start to finish. Travolta's acting was abysmal and evidenced in every frame of this disjointed dreck-fest. If Gotti were alive, I suspect he'd have put a "hit" out on Travolta and the producers of this movie (and justifiably so).
A bizarre tribute to awful men with even worse acting. The mix of VHS archival footage and re-enactments make this feel like something you'd expect to see in a direct to DVD release.
Half a star is probably 3 more stars than it deserves.
Travolta did a good enough job with what they gave him. However, there is no story. It’s is simply a series of events that do not combine to form any sort of story.
Critics put out the hit on Gotti
It's so bad that I couldn't help but sit and watch for 105 minutes.
John Travolta stars as the notorious New York mobster John Gotti, the Teflon Don, in the compelling crime drama Gotti. The film follows the rise of John Gotti from a low level henchman to head of the Gambino Crime Family, along with his ultimate conviction and incarceration in federal prison. Travolta gives a strong performance and has a solid supporting cast that includes Kelly Preston and Stacy Keach. However, the writing is kind of weak. Told in flashback, it's not always clear when things are occurring or Gotti's position in the family hierarchy. Still, the storyteller motif, of Gotti telling his story to the audience, works fairly well. And the soundtrack and score are especially good and adds a lot of energy to the film. It comes off as a little bias (highlighting the support that he had on the street), but Gotti provides an interesting look at one of the most powerful crime bosses of New York City.
A boring generic gangsta movie
Every so often (more than the world needs) some movie makers feel the urge to glorify mafia nasties with a ‘tribute' towards their obsessive power struggles - power won through thuggish brutality. In their simplistic plight towards being number one in the stockpile of grotesque morons they kill and maim any bystander (even their own) fool enough to make a challenge. These are the Bikie criminals who wear suits and drive fancy cars and think of themselves as superior - without ever seeing themselves for the ugly hypocrites they have become. Here we have John Travolta hamming it up as vicious crime boss John Gotti in a movie as bleakly shot and edited as these things can get.
Somehow, this might appeal to the Godfather followers, or anyone foolish enough to be enamoured by the undeserved glorification of trashy hooligans (no matter how stylish they present themselves to be). But, looking at the box office returns, it certainly seems most audiences could smell what was coming and stayed away. Director Kevin Connolly, perhaps should remain an actor, and think twice before going behind the cameras any time too soon. If anyone might come out of this mess looking reasonably OK, it could be Stacy Keach but, the foul scripted dialogue continually destroys any efforts he may be attempting.
NOTHING raises this "movie" above the level of total and complete . . . DISASTER . . . period.
Zero?!?? Don't be silly.
Even Howard the Duck and Movie 43 haven't got (nor deserve) zero. ð(TM)
