Casino (1995)

Written By Awir Aditya on Monday, August 10, 2009 | 8:37 AM

Genre: Drama/Crime

Starring: Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci, Sharon Stone

The movie gives a deep insight into the funtioning of Las Vegas casinos somewhere in the 70's - 80's. Sam Rothstein aka Ace (DeNiro) is put in charge of running the new Tangier's Casino. Nicky Santoro (Pesci) is Sam's old friend who is appointed to keep Sam safe. Sam marries Ginger (Stone), a hustler who makes money off high-rollers. He believes that by marrying her he can make her love him and improve her life. Sam believes that a casino is a way to earn money, whereas Nicky believes that a casino is a way to steal money. He starts cheating and eventually gets banned from entering any Vegas casino. Left with no choice, Nicky and his gang turn into gangsters and take on theft and murder. His shady activities start putting Sam and Nicky's relationship into media focus which attracts heat to Sam's casino. Ginger meanwhile, still cant get around to love Sam and the only thing she does love is his money. Things get messy when the law starts coming down on Sam hard and his wife gets too close to Nicky. Greed eventually leads to murder which eventually leaves behind one bloody mess. The movie narrates a good and interesting story, but gets too long and monotonous. Probably if the movie was more short and direct, it would be able to hold audience interest better.

Rating: 7.1/10
