The film will reveal the relationship of a father who lived and died by the mob code and a son who, while brought up to lead a life of crime, chose to leave that world behind and redeem himself and the Gotti name. Never before has there been such an inside look at the Gotti family and their world of danger, betrayal and redemption. John Gotti was head of the Gambino crime family, which in its time was the largest and most powerful crime organization in the country. Known as the "Dapper Don," John Gotti's flamboyant style and outspoken personality made him one of the most famous mobsters of the 20th century and he ruled the underworld until he died from cancer in 2002 while serving a life sentence.

I am a huge mobster movie fan, and love the HBO special that came out back in the day with Armand Assante, but this was an absolutely atrocious attempt at portraying the most legendary mafia boss in history. It was so horribly directed, and boring, I turned it off in less than an hour. So many parts of it were inaccurate, and it jumped around in a way that was almost impossible to watch because I really didnt care about any of the characters based on how badly they were cast, including Travolta who I like as an actor usually. Do not watch this movie, it is an insult to Gotti fans that this was even produced.
