very well paced. take a look into Gotti's life from 3 different times of his life.
I have been following Mr Gotti since I my childhood and have been following this movie for eight years. I must say John Travolta knocked it out of the park. Nice to see a true story stay very true. Mr Gotti was a hero to a lot of people. He will never be forgotten!
Gotti is technically inept, where every scene feels like a disconnected sizzle reel for a different movie than the previous one, but the fascinating thing it about is less what it fails to do than what it’s trying to do.
Travolta is a lively presence in some scenes, talking in a rowdy New Yawka accent and tossing off a few good lines early on. (The highlight being: If I robbed a church and had the steeple sticking out of my ass, I would deny it.) But he can do little to bring this tedious and episodic chronicle to life.
GOTTI follows infamous crime boss John Gotti’s (John Travolta) rise to become the “Teflon Don” of the Gambino Crime Family in New York City. Spanning three decades and recounted by his son John Jr. (Spencer Lofranco), GOTTI examines Gotti’s tumultuous life as he and his wife (Kelly Preston) attempt to hold the family together amongst tragedy and multiple prison sentences.
