IMBD Rate: Release Year: Genre: Length: Director: Budget: Gross Worldwide:
8/10 1995 Crime, Drama 178 min Martin Scorsese $52,000,000 $116,112,375

Director Martin Scorsese's Casino (1995) is a classic in the genre of gambling movies. The film is based on the book by Nicholas Pileggi and is the true story of a man who managed multiple casinos on behalf of the mafia.

The movie takes place in Las Vegas in the 1970s and 1980s and tells the story of Sam Rosenthal, the Tangiers Casino owner, who has connections to the mob.

Acting legends Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, and Sharon Stone contribute to the film's lasting appeal. The movie follows the storyline of their characters, Ace Rothstein and Nicky Santoro, two mafia members who become casino managers. Things start to go wrong when Ace falls in love with a beautiful hustler, and Nicky gets entangled in a cycle of drugs and violence.

The film portrays the extravagant old days of gambling in Las Vegas and mobsters running casinos before the arrival of online casino operators.

FILM DESCRIPTION: The inner-workings of a corrupt Las Vegas casino are exposed in Martin Scorsese's story of crime and punishment. The film chronicles the lives and times of three characters: "Ace" Rothstein (Robert De Niro), a bookmaking wizard; Nicky Santoro (Joe Pesci), a Mafia underboss and longtime best friend to Ace; and Ginger McKenna (Sharon Stone, in a role she was born to play), a leggy ex-prostitute with a fondness for jewelry and a penchant for playing the field. Ace plays by the rules (albeit Vegas rules, which, as he reminds the audience in voiceover, would make him a criminal in any other state), while Nicky and Ginger lie, cheat, and steal their respective ways to the top. The film's first hour and a half details their rise to power, while the second half follows their downfall as the FBI, corrupt government officials, and angry mob bosses pick apart their Camelot piece by piece.
