Without stinting on the viciousness, Scorsese still conveys an element of nostalgia in Casino, although it's less because the movie is convinced by Ace and Nicky's vision of the good old days than it is skepticism over what will eventually replace them.
Adam Nayman. By the end of Casino, for all its craftsmanly bravura, you may want to join her. Owen Gleiberman. So long as Casino stays focused on the excesses -- of language, of violence, of ambition -- in the life-styles of the rich and infamous, it remains a smart, knowing, if often repetitive, spectacle.
Richard Schickel. Jonathan Rosenbaum. Martin Scorsese's intimate epic about money, sex and brute force is a grandly conceived study of what happens to goodfellas from the mean streets when they outstrip their wildest dreams and achieve the pinnacle of wealth and power.
Todd McCarthy. It's not the actors' fault that no one is able to break through the film's gorgeous but chilly surface. You watch Casino with respect and appreciation, reveling in its documentary sense of detail.
David Ansen. Scorsese's skill at creating brevity out of such a kaleidoscopic canvas commands respect, though there's the nagging sense that he's running through something of a formula.
PJ Nabarro. Casino is, in a sense, Scorsese's Godfather. It has the epic scale, the operatic violence and the cornered protagonist who craves legitimacy Mary Nemeth.
Scorsese's Casino is just another Las Vegas spectacular, as noisy and purposeless and, at three hours, as seemingly eternal as the Kids' inferno at Circus Circus.
Al Alvarez. Casino is Scorsese's 'messy drawer' of a movie; disconnected scenes and stylistic odds and sods Simon Miraudo.
Overlong and tedious crime drama epic. A kinetic behind-the-scenes look at the Vegas casinos. Dennis Schwartz. Ellen Twadell. Top Box Office.
Ace is the smooth operator of the Tangiers casino, while Nicky is his boyhood friend and tough strongman, robbing and shaking down the locals.
However, they each have a tragic flaw--Ace falls in love with a hustler, Ginger, and Nicky falls into an ever-deepening spiral of drugs and violence.
A complex, multilayered, beautifully directed film, Martin Scorsese's Casino is a masterpiece of destruction and betrayal. Few films take so many chances and succeed so wonderfully.
It takes some of the basic formulas that were found in Goodfellas and applies them to another type of story - while Goodfellas' view was ground-level, telling the story of the "blue collar" gangsters of NYC, this film tells the story of the guys who controlled those guys.
And it's fascinating to watch these people run Las Vegas, control the flow of money, and then fall from the heights of power due to lust, hubris, and greed.
An amazing film that will hopefully get the recognition it deserves in the years to come. Prime Video has you covered this holiday season with movies for the family.

The research for Casino began when news reporter and screenwriter Nicholas Pileggi read a report from the Las Vegas Sun about a domestic argument between Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal , a casino figure, and his wife Geri McGee , a former topless dancer.
Argent was owned by Allen Glick, but the casino was believed to be controlled by various organized crime families from the Midwest.
