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.

Chicago Tribune
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]
100
Possesses a stylistic boldness and verisimilitude that is virtually matchless.
90
Rolling Stone
Whether or not Casino meets your expectations, it delivers the rush you only get from an audacious gamble.

Film.com
Eye-popping, exhilarating and occasionally a bit stomach-churning.
88
USA Today
A 2-hour classic wrongfully stretched into three.
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).
75
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.
60
TV Guide
An accomplished film that carries with it the unshakable feeling that we've seen it all before.
50
San Francisco Chronicle
It's an ambitious film -- but also a scattered, unfocused one.
