Poor Goodfellas/Casino Clone
22 June 2001 | by kevinquigley2493See all my reviews

The film starts of promisingly but after 20-30 minutes deteriorates into boring collection of scenes which include Johnny Rochetti (Forsyth) going from place to place and also other scenes which are supposed to be stylish directing but just don't work.

The film is very boring and I don't think Forsythe's facial expressions change at all during the film. One high point in the film is the appearance of Ernie Hudson as a special agent who manages to actually put a bit of character in the film.

If you want a good mafia/gangster film watch Goodfellas, Casino or Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels.

You wonder why people bother making such dirge.
