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.

Was originally planned for a theatrical release, but the project fell short on funding. Therefore, it became an HBO film. See more »
There's a shot of Manhattan, which is supposed to take place in 1973, however we can see a building from the World Financial Center which didn't exist in 1973 and the antenna on top of the north tower of the World Trade Center which wasn't there at the time. This is clearly a shot of the Manhattan skyline as it looked in the mid 1990s. See more »

This movie focuses a LOT more on just the actual man John Gotti rather than all the affect he has. Armand Assante is very convincing and did an excellent job acting. However, unlike The Godfather, this is a REAL story. That makes it all the more fun to watch. It's definitely worth watching if you're a gangster movie addict like me
It's definitely no Godfather, but if you're looking for something new...give it a shot
