Casino was released in 1995 and left it's viewers stunned. The movie is based upon money, power, greediness, lies, and murder all over a casino empire. These young men come up in the Vegas business and the lifestyle immediately takes over.
Some say that Casino is one of the most underrated films in criminal movie history. The entire script of this movie is great and the acting is better than great. Joe Pesci is the ruthless but nonetheless humorous "sidekick" of Robert DeNiro's, and I must say, these two have always made the dynamic duo. Their chemistry in the movie is absolutely superb.
Sharon Stone in this movie plays DeNiro's greedy girlfriend, who then becomes his wife. DeNiro must be able to trust this woman with his life, but unfortunately, they face many trials and tribulations throughout their marriage that turns into something more than what DeNiro would have liked it to have been.
The movie is narrated by Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci which definitely makes it much easier to follow. This movie is absolutely, positively well worth a watch. It's a mesmerizing movie.
However, on the other hand (and in someone else's opinion, not my own), some say that the movie ends up seeming like it's dragging on, becoming somewhat boring and predictable. They say that because it likes action in some scenes that this is what makes it one notch below the movie "Good Fellas".
I must disagree. I'd say that Casino is going to be a classic, despite what anyone else thinks.
