Scorsese's last great Mafia flick in a perfect 4K transfer
Verified purchase
This one will be short and sweet. Casino is an absolutely riveting entertainment with rock-solid performances by DeNiro, Pesci and Stone, to say nothing of the formidable supporting cast. Scorsese directs with his usual grit and offers up one of the most compelling movies from the 1990's. Universal has seen fit to remaster the movie in true 4K and the results are absolutely perfect. Nothing to complain about here. You are going to love re-visiting Casino all over again in 4K.

4k UHD, generous 2 stars, worse than I remember it being. Blah transfer too.

Where to begin? I have seen this movie numerous times, most viewings some years ago. I used to like this film. It has not aged well, far worse than Goodfellas has aged. Several points. not worrying about spoilers here as anyone reading this has probably seen this film. This is a poor follow up to Goodfellas, A point I was willing to ignore for many years, but I am older now and more wise. First, this biggest budget item is Robert DeNiro's" wardrobe, some really nice duds, I must admit. But, that's where it ends. DeNiro looks like he's sleepwalking thru most of his scenes, probably already knowing this is a cheap money grab of a film. It almost seems like he could barely remember his lines. However Pesci never fails to disappoint. The production values are terrible here, gun shots with no muzzle flash, pulled and missed punches are abundant. Countless extras are easily seen looking into the cameras. Numerous actors were seen in Goodfellas like this is some sort of club membership perk of Martin Scorsese. As for Don Rickles, who I really liked, if he is going to play a dead guy, at least have the courtesy to fall down. As I watch this film again, this time on 4K, which is not very impressive at all, is likely the cause of the original film stock, again, a low production value target. By todays standards, the film is too long, clocking in at a minute shy of 3 hours. I found myself getting bored and weary, not because I have seen it before, but because It's just not a good movie. If I didn't like the movie all along, I would not have repurchased it in 4K. All this time I could never understand what Scorsese had in mind, bringing the cast of Goodfellas to Vegas, like no one would question the genius behind the best gangster movie ever made, but alas, time passes and soon we forget. (Remember Raging Bull)?? Now it just seems like a really bad idea as it could have been so much more with a different cast. No diss to DeNiro or Pesci, 2 of my favorites, but truth is truth. What if J.J Abrams took the cast of Star Trek and renamed them and made them all pig farmers in a new movie. Wait, I may be on to something here...Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. If you already own this film in some other format, give yourself a break and pass. You decide. Oh and thanks for the no UHD download either, cheapskates'...

An Educational Experience

This move is one of the top five movies every man should watch. I don't know how you can call yourself educated if you haven't seen this cinematic masterpiece. A place and time in American history where men drove Cadillacs smoked tobacco, drank, beat their problems to the ground with their bare hands, and brought home supermodels, simple put; Legends.

You can't run a legit business in Vegas working for the mob
Verified purchase
Casino was another one of Martin Scorsese’s epic mafia movies. It featured Robert De Niro as Sam Rothstein, Joe Pesci as Nicky Santoro and Sharon Stone as Ginger McKenna. Rothstein was given control of the Tangiers hotel in Las Vegas by the mob in the 1970s. The story is about his struggle to run a competent business in the face of all kinds of pressure to screw it up.

Like Scorsese’s best films it’s a character driven story. Rothstein is a control freak in a business that he can’t control especially when he has friends like Santoro who feels like he can do what he wants and McKenna who is a loose cannon. Those two stars also get to shine. There’s all the crime and killing that Santoro does and McKenna just plays men like fiddles. All three of their performances were outstanding.

There’s also many great mafia moments like Rothstein having his car blown up. Scorsese is just fantastic at creating memorable scenes.

Finally the story takes a shot at Las Vegas. Everything looks so good but below the surface it’s so bad.

Impressive film about vile people
Verified purchase
I saw this in '95 ( on VHS) :) and responded much the way the overwhelming majority of people responded. Its late late 2019 and ive watched it again , this time as a digital purchase through Amazon , though its still a pretty cool movie ( Sharon Stone what a stunner !! ) my taste in violence has soured and this film is violent. Its peopled with really unpleasant characters as well. Ive never been to Vegas and though I live in Omaha NE ive never been to the casinos in Council Bluffs either. I knew this one lady who told me that as soon as she would get money in her pocket she would go straight to a CB casino , she told me that her hands would be trembling even before she crossed the state line.She eventually went bankrupt. smh
Its a pretty gripping way to spend a couple hours though and the musical score is really cool , adds a lot of flavor , though I dont have the soundtrack I may decide to buy it someday , its not offered digitally as of yet.

this is my favorite movie
Verified purchase
it came out the year I was born, but this is my favorite movie. I love Las Vegas. I love the history. I just finished listening to the Las Vegas Review Journal's podcast called Mobbed Up, and it tracks perfectly with the movie. One of Robert De Niro's best performances, and Joe P is always great. Don pickles is honestly just icing on the cake. This is the best movie. Period end of story, nothing else needs to be said.

Hey, It's Casino

I purchased this to view again. I love this genre and Scorsese, DeNiro, and Pesci deliver again. I saw this at the theater, I purchased the video, the DVD, and now a digital copy. It seem once every couple of years I watch again.

A classic gets an amazing UHD transfer.
Verified purchase
Another Scorsese classic gets a transfer that just makes the film look gorgeous like never before. One of the better catalogue releases of the year, and it makes the old bluray look pretty tame in comparison. The detail in this film is extravagant. Put this one on the big screen and let the 4K experience take hold. It's beautiful. This is how all older transfers should be done. Black slipcover prone to damage on Amazon if there are any left. Highly recommended.
