    Possesses a stylistic boldness and verisimilitude that is virtually matchless.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Whether or not Casino meets your expectations, it delivers the rush you only get from an audacious gamble.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Mike Clark

    A 2-hour classic wrongfully stretched into three.

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Several flaws, mostly minor, keep Casino on a plateau slightly below that of the director's best (Mean Streets, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, Goodfellas).

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Richard Schickel

    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.

  • Rick Groen

    Visually impressive, splendidly performed, thematically significant, this is a movie in full possession of every key cinematic asset except one -- a solid script. Casino is a polished vehicle with an untuned engine.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    One of the ironies of Casino is that even though Scorsese is interested in the story's wider implications, he focuses so much energy on that unsavory romantic triangle that he and the film lose sight of the larger issues.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    Simultaneously quite watchable and passionless.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Staff(not credited)

    An accomplished film that carries with it the unshakable feeling that we've seen it all before.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • David Ansen

    As anthropology, it's fascinating, and everything about the production is first class. But the human drama at the heart of this movie is stillborn.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    It's an ambitious film -- but also a scattered, unfocused one.

    Roll past this casino.

  • Michael Wilmington

    You can't praise highly enough the contributions of the ensemble--De Niro and Pesci especially--but it's Scorsese's triumph. [22 November 1995, Tempo, p.1]
