Casino is possibly one of the better films of the 1990's as it is based on true events but altered for the film to make it more dramatic and gripping.
The Main character Ace who is played by Robert De Niro is a man who can neveer lose a bet as we learn in the movie as he can win and helps the bosses who secretly run vegas money and a lot of it, apart from that we learn that he falls in love with Ginger played by Sharon Stone but she doesnt love him. I like Ace as you see him reach the high and lows in Las Vegas. However i think that Ace's long time friend Nicky who is played by Joe Pesci is the main star of the show as we see him rise from a low level gangster to a person who is like Al Capone as the character is banned from Vegas and all it's casino's, but i like him as he is a caring father and he always makes breakfast each morning.
i think were the desert scene between Ace and Nicky(where even Ace said his chance were living were 50 50 instead of 99 out of 100 as it shows what Vegas can do to friends who have different opinoins.) is one of the better scenes in the movie
Martin Scorsese directed this movie and he did it like how he directed Goodfellas as he started off with the end but showed how it came to be like that in the restof the movie then at the end you see the start again and what happens nex. Scorsese 2worked with De Niro and Pesci for the 3rd time 4 this movie and it shows that they can make a good movie.
overall i consider Casino to be one of the better gangster films of the 1990's as there is a few storylines that in the end tie each other up nicely into 1 storyline at the end
The 1 thing i didn't like in the movie is that Ginger's old boyfriend played by James woods does not get enough screen time as i liked how the character was always going to Ginger to help and she would always do it even tho he got beaten up for it. I thought he should have been in it a bit longer
