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

Product Description

Martin Scorsese, one of America's most influential filmmakers, returns to the world of mobsters, greed, and excess that he explored so compellingly in 1990's Goodfellas. Set in the 1970s and revelling in the minute details of how Las Vegas casinos operate, the film chronicles the rise and fall of casino manager Ace Rothstein (Robert De Niro). As the king of his domain, Ace efficiently runs the business and regularly sends lots of cold cash to his bosses. Helping him keep the casino's employees and customers honest is his best friend, Nicky (Joe Pesci), a violent sociopath. Although Ace aims to run a relatively respectable casino, the volatile Nicky wants to take over the entire gambling mecca, and when Ginger McKenna (Sharon Stone), a seasoned Vegas hustler, enters the picture, Ace and Nicky's friendship is complicated even further. As drugs and alcohol become a bigger part of Ginger's life, all three are eventually brought down by their own greed and blind ambition. Casino shares many similarities with Goodfellas, beginning with a script that was cowritten by Scorsese and Nicholas Pileggi. Regulars De Niro and Pesci are first rate once again as the dissimilar companions, but it is Stone who steals the show with her gruelling, intense performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for Mob film lovers 3 Feb 2009
Format:Blu-ray
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Must-have upgrade to Blu-ray 26 Jan 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Movie 26 Mar 2003
Format:DVD
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.

Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it!! 2 Mar 2008
Format:DVD
Casino was another helping of the finest acting. all of the characters were excellect, De Niro again didnt fail in empressing me. The story line was awsome, full of quirky lines and little surprises along the way (a little violence of course). although i dont think this film was as good as goodfellas i was still very impressed over all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Casino 2 disc 2 Feb 2008
By Spider Monkey HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
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.
