    Whether or not Casino meets your expectations, it delivers the rush you only get from an audacious gamble. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    It's an ambitious film -- but also a scattered, unfocused one. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    A 2-hour classic wrongfully stretched into three. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    You can't praise highly enough the contributions of the ensemble--De Niro and Pesci especially--but it's Scorsese's triumph. [22 November 1995, Tempo, p.1] show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Scorsese tells his story with the energy and pacing he's famous for, and with a wealth of little details that feel just right. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Several flaws, mostly minor, keep Casino on a plateau slightly below that of the director's best (Mean Streets, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, Goodfellas). show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Visually impressive, splendidly performed, thematically significant, this is a movie in full possession of every key cinematic asset except one -- a solid script. Casino is a polished vehicle with an untuned engine. show more

    An accomplished film that carries with it the unshakable feeling that we've seen it all before. show more

    Variety

    Possesses a stylistic boldness and verisimilitude that is virtually matchless. show more

    Eye-popping, exhilarating and occasionally a bit stomach-churning. show more

    I liked the movie but find that after writing Jane McCormick\'s true life story, Breaking My Silence, Confessions of a Rat Pack Party Girl and sex-trade survivor, I believeSharon Stone\'s character is based on the true life story of Jane Harvey. McCormick is the 60s blond that everyone talked about back in the 60s Vegas and she copy wrote her biography back in 1992 called Roll of the Dice. There are too many indications in the movie that depict Jane\'s life as she lifed it as the \"high-class\" call girl of Vegas. She is the still living Sharon Stone character till alive today here in Minnesota. Patti Wicklund, Author of Breaking My Silence
