| The movie does not compare to the man the movie's about.
Reminds me a lot of All Eyes on Me, the biopic on Tupac who everyone would agree is Hip Hop's masterpiece, yet the movie feels like someone spent two weeks and two dollars to make a movie-of-the week, Just not worthy of the legend.

Feel the same way about Gotti. Gotti may not have been the greatest guy on Earth but he was infamous and I've seen much worse people get a far better picture.

At a time when Mafia dons were just fictional characters you would see in movies by Francis Ford Coppola, John Gotti was the real deal. Proving this was how heavily actor turned director, Kevin Connolly used real life news footage to help tell the story.

I herd John Travolta say in an interview that Kevin Connolly was the best director he's worked with. I don't know if that can be true about E from Entourage (because Travolta did work with John Woo twice), but it could be. However, that fact does not make the best movie.

It's well informed about a a man who I only know form News reports, but I got to say that when it comes to laying out the info, this movie was not the best. It was a lot to take in and far too jumbled.

It does not help how the film needed to concentrate on the man who played Gotti, Travolta, whose mean face always looks fake to me. Best part was the scenes in which he's interacting with his family which includes Victoria Gotti being played by Travolta's real wife, Kelly Preston.

I don't know weather it was money, timing, or ego, but something was not fully up to the standards I was expecting. Maybe I was expecting the Godfather and they were trying to give me the Sopranos, but I felt I did not even get that.
