Never before has there been such an inside look at the Gotti family and their world of danger, betrayal and redemption. John Gotti was head of the Gambino crime family, which in its time was the largest and most powerful crime organization in the country. Known as the "Dapper Don," John Gotti's flamboyant style and outspoken personality made him one of the most famous mobsters of the 20th century and he ruled the underworld until he died from cancer in 2002 while serving a life sentence. In 1988, at the age of 24, Gotti Jr. became a "made man," and was officially inducted into the Mafia, making him the heir-apparent to head the Gambino crime family and follow in his father's footsteps.

Better than the critics would have you believe.
30 June 2018 | by littletedSee all my reviews

This may have had a very troubled birth but there is no denying the commitment of everyone involved. A superb biopic, a little unevenly told but still a great film if your already familiar with the epic tale of Gotti. Nicely compacted in under 2 hours I suspect if will improve with age, maybe not your traditional gangster movie but definitely worth viewing for fans of the genre or history buffs. Travolta gives a highly underrated performance.
