Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Gotti is amazing, living up the the low expectations I set for it. With a ‘0’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, you’d expect this film to be pretty dire. And it is. Boring, overlong, repetitive and derivative Gotti is exactly the movie you’ve heard it is. It’s Badfellas, The BadFather, DullFace… you get the point. That all said what stops it being a complete disaster is that the story of John Gotti is actually pretty interesting and even a bad interpretation of it has (some) merit. Honestly just stick to Goodfellas instead. Or watch The Honest Trailer which is FAR better!
Best Bit: I mean Travolta is amazing… for all the wrong reasons
Buy, Stream, Avoid: Avoid (or stream if you are up for a laugh)
If You Liked this Try: Goodfellas, Donnie Brasco, The Godfather
