Storyline

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 Brian Rawnsley <rawnsleb@natlib.govt.nz>

Goofs

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 »

rise and fall of the last don.
24 December 2002 | by (uk) – See all my reviews

Gotti is exceptional piece of film brought to the small screen,the cast is outstanding and nail biting stuff from the start to the very end. armand assante`s performance is so chilling as the dapper don,and it brings so much intensity leaving the audience compelled by this larger than life charismatic figure of the underworld.The dialogue is snappy and the onscreen chemistry between Assante`s portrayal of Gotti and Quinns as Neil dellacross is more than convincing.This film works well because it doesn't rely to much on violence as its predessors did in Goodfellas and others like casino.
