John Gotti, the head of a small New York mafia crew breaks a few of the old family rules. He rises to become the head of the Gambino family and the most well-known mafia boss in America. He is known as the Dapper Don for his expensive taste in suits, and the Teflon Don because none of the FBI charges against him will stick. Life is good, but suspicion creeps in, and greed, rule-breaking and his high public profile all threaten to topple him. Written by

Gotti tells the story of John Gotti, the head of the Gambino family and the most well-known mafia boss in America.
The story is very interesting and the acting is good. Especially Armand Assante (Hoffa) and Anthony Quinn (The Message) are very convincing. Mr. Assante is definitely a better John Gotti than Tom Sizemore, who played John Gotti in Witness to the Mob. Some scenes are action packed and a couple of times even my adrenaline did go faster, not super fast, like in Scarface or Heat, but just fast enough. The directing and editing could have been much better but it was certainly not bad for a TV-Film.
I really had a great time while watching this film. It's really one of the better ones about real-life mafia boss John Gotti. Try to catch it on cable or DVD.
