Gotti Reviews

June 22, 2018
He looks distractingly terrible at every stop...You never forget that you are watching John Travolta playing John Gotti every time.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Aside from the wardrobe and the makeup, "Gotti" falls far short of capturing period-piece details and never immerses us in the era.

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.

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.

The film is pretty terrible: poorly written, devoid of tension, ridiculous in spots and just plain dull in others.
