Chicago Sun-Times
Scorsese tells his story with the energy and pacing he's famous for, and with a wealth of little details that feel just right.

Rolling Stone
Whether or not Casino meets your expectations, it delivers the rush you only get from an audacious gamble.
88
ReelViews
Several flaws, mostly minor, keep Casino on a plateau slightly below that of the director's best (Mean Streets, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, Goodfellas).
88
USA Today
A 2-hour classic wrongfully stretched into three.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
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.

Chicago Reader
Simultaneously quite watchable and passionless.

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.
60
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.
50
San Francisco Chronicle
It's an ambitious film -- but also a scattered, unfocused one.
30
Roll past this casino.
