Product Description

Director Martin Scorsese casts Robert De Niro as Sam 'Ace' Rothstein, the mob's frontman for a billion dollar Las Vegas casino. The story begins in 1973; Ace falls for hooker Ginger McKenna (Sharon Stone), while boyhood companion Nicky Santoro (Joe Pesci) is appointed as his muscle at the club. Over the years various jealousies surface and erupt in a series of violent betrayals and, ultimately, the destruction of Rothstein's empire.

From Amazon.co.uk

Director Martin Scorsese reunites with members of his GoodFellas gang (writer Nicholas Pileggi; actors Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Frank Vincent) for a three-hour epic about the rise and fall of mobster Sam "Ace" Rothstein (De Niro), a character based on real-life gangster Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal. (It's modelled on Wiseguy and GoodFellas and Pileggi's true crime book Casino: Love and Honour in Las Vegas.) Through Rothstein, the picture tells the story of how the Mafia seized, and finally lost control of, Las Vegas gambling. The first hour plays like a fascinating documentary, intricately detailing the inner workings of Vegas casinos. Sharon Stone is the stand out among the actors; she nabbed an Oscar nomination for her role as the voracious Ginger, the glitzy call girl who becomes Rothstein's wife. The film is not as fast-paced or gripping as Scorsese's earlier gangster pictures (Mean Streets and Good Fellas) but it's still absorbing. And, hey--it's Scorsese! --Jim Emerson

Having bought a blu-ray player, I'd decided to only buy new films on the format and not upgrade my old DVDs unless the movie in question was one of my all-time favourites.. I have to say Casino fits that criteria. Scorcese and De Niro at their best! The blu-ray picture is sharp and colourful - it tends to show up the grain of the source print, compared to a modern release, but this is no bad thing. Decent extras too. Worth mentioning that the blu-ray has the original burnt-in 'subtitles' ("Back Home Years Ago" etc.) rather than the horrible player-generated subs on the PAL DVD. A must-buy.

Casino is a great movie and is by far better than Goodfellas. The movie takes place in the Seventies and Eighties. It follows the story of Sam 'Ace' Rothstein (Robert De Niro) who is sent to Las Vegas to run the Tangiers Casino, which the mob have acquired through the Teamsters Union. Rothstein got his nickname by being an ace gambler who never loses at all when he places a bet. It doesn't take very long for the casino to start generating huge amounts of cash but things don't go very well after the arrival of Ace's friend, Nicky Santoro (Joe Pesci) who is a violent gangster who wants to get his hands on Las Vegas in order to make himself rich. His burglaries and killings interest the Police and the FBI and they start to keep a watch on him everywhere. Rothstein is having his own problems with his wife (Sharon Stone) and everything begins to break apart by the end of the movie. On the DVD there is the original Theatrical Trailer and production notes and cast and crew notes. The DVD is great and any fan of Robert De Niro or Martin Scorsese should buy it.

Casino is no doubt one of the six best gangster movies ever made and Scorsese's underrated masterpiece. Once you start watching it you get stuck to your armchair and cannot take your eyes off the screen although the film is 180 minutes long. I have had it in most formats VHS, DVD and Blu-Ray. I see it again and again and never tire of it. De Niro, Pesci and Sharon Stone are just brilliant.

Unless you are sensitive to violence and American four-letter words you cannot miss it, but do not watch it with your kids until they are six-teen or older.

The soundtrack too is superb and with a charm all its own, from Angelina by Louis Prima to Bach's Matthaus Passion no better sounds could be found to wrap each and every scene.

Having not seen 'Goodfellas' to compare this to (at the point when I watched this film) I was thoroughly impressed with 'Casino'. A great deal of it is shot with De Niro doing a voice-over, telling the story as he went, which I really liked. The way a casino was run and how it all relates back to mob control was fascinating to see and the various tricks the customers and casino owners use are pretty inventive. Some parts of this film are pretty graphic, as to be expected from Scorcese, but the story overall is gripping and kept me engaged the whole time. The extras disc is excellent, with some great featurettes and bonus material to really add to your understanding of the film. This is a great gangster type movie and brilliantly directed and acted. Well worth a viewing.

Format: Blu-ray
The Martin Scorsese/Robert De Niro pairing has been so successful - that it was inevitable the pair meet up again; this time Robert plays bad guy trying to go straight Sam 'Ace' Rothstein. He's got a good old friend Mickey (Joe Pesci) who wants to make it big in Vegas. The thing is, so does Sam, so he wants to stay good with the locals, but at the same time give Mickey what he needs. Friendships become very tight, when Sam falls in love with a call girl (Ginger, played by Sharon Stone) and Mickey makes life very difficult for himself and others. The name of the game here is corruption, and Ace's are low.

This is a great film from the master of hustle films like The Color Of Money [DVD] [1987] and classics like Mean Streets (Special Edition) [DVD] [1973] - Scorsese shows again he's a skilful movie maker who researches his movies well. The 30 minute introduction into casino business brings you right up to speed. Of course this film wouldn't be as good without it's primary cast, Pesci as the cheeky wise guy Mickey is priceless, and De Niro is still very much suited to the courteous gangster who if you cross, you'll be sorry. I also like Sharon Stone's portrayal of Ginger, even though towards the end of the movie she was very annoying!

This Blu-Ray is not bad at all, and has a lot of language selections including French and Catalan Spanish - and over 15 different subtitles, which will suit any user. The picture is good but not amazing, but yet was better than the DVD. I was expecting more dazzle from this feature as it's a big movie, but it wasn't to be.

It must be annoying for Martin Scorsese when people call Casino Goodfellas Part 2 and understandably so; Casino, though featuring both Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci, is completely a film of its own. Goodfellas was a study of the middle class gangsters of New York; Casino is about the middle class making it big. It is a far more ambitious film than Goodfellas, strangely more civilised and tamed because of the glamorous setting of Las Vegas, which is revealed to be so hollow and controlled by a group of corrupt old men.
Casino tells the story of Sam 'Ace' Rothstein (De Niro), a Jewish casino manager in 1970s Las Vegas. It revolves around the system of the casinos and how ultimately you lose more money than you gain, but also his relationship with his childhood friend, Nicky Santoro (Joe Pesci) and his wife, Ginger McKenna (Sharon Stone). It flows so beautifully, describing in rich detail through the voiceovers of De Niro and Pesci how the casino works. Casino is such a classy film, each shot packed with glamour and the plot fueled by a great soundtrack and sharp dialogue. There are so many memorable moments and essentially it serves so much less as a biopic than Goodfellas.
The acting is first rate - De Niro shines in all 180 minutes, playing a flawed and possessive man, but one who is weighed down by his loyalities to friends. Joe Pesci is on top form as the reckless Nicky Santoro, a mob boss. His performance is similar to that of Goodfellas, but there is something more classy and swish about it. Sharon Stone would steal the show if it wasn't for De Niro and Pesci, as her performance is one of perfection. You will not know whether to pity, hate, or love her character. This is what makes Casino so great.
