Robert De Niro, Sharon Stone and Joe Pesci star in director Martin Scorsese's riveting look at how blind ambition, white-hot passion and 24-karat greed toppled an empire. Las Vegas, 1973, is the setting for this fact-based story about the Mob's multimillion-dollar casino operation, where fortunes and lives were made and lost with a roll of the dice.

Meet the Characters from Casino
Sam Rothstein (Robert De Niro)
Former sports handicapper Sam Rothstein was recruited by the mob to manage the Tangiers Casino due to his financial genius and ruthless efficiency. Sam soon turns the Tangiers into a cash cow for the mafia, but his infatuation with a beautiful hustler threatens to topple his Las Vegas empire.
Ginger McKenna (Sharon Stone)
The beautiful and impulsive Ginger McKenna caught the eye of Sam Rothstein while running a scam in his casino, and they are soon married. But even her luxurious new life can’t save Ginger from her self-destructive impulses...or the influence of her former boyfriend.
Nicky Santoro (Joe Pesci)
Brutal mob enforcer Nicky Santoro followed his childhood friend Sam Rothstein to the Tangiers Casino. Despite their friendship, Nicky’s bloodthirsty and reckless tactics in Las Vegas threaten to destroy everything that Sam has built.

This 4k disc presentation yields an awesome film to digital transfer...I rate the quality at 4.5 out of 5. There is just enough grain to remind us that its shot on film (by the great bob richardson) and is sharp but not overly sharp in detail. The hdr shows off the film's great saturated colorful production design(although its stylistically toned down a good deal of the time to 'age' the movie to its 60s-80s time period it takes place in. A real must-have for your collection/library.
Overall I'd rate this movie as 4 out of 5 stars.
The movie is based on a true story of Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal [Bobby De Niro] and what he brought to Lost Wages: both casino innovations and the mob [and violence].
Everything was going great until a mobster enforcer [Joe Pesci] came to town and was smitten by Ginger [Sharon Stone].
The 4K was cleaned up but the Blu-ray was not. So the latter has specs all over the place.
The Blu-ray is identical to the original Blu-ray release: 3 minutes of deleted/out-takes and two TV documentaries - all totaling 1 hour. The extras are in standard definition. Argh!
[Decided not to remove any star because the $K version is why I bought it.]
This film is not so loosely based on the history of the Stardust Casino (known in the film as the Tangiers) as it was run by Frank Rosenthal (Ace Rothstein) and the mob enforcer turned local thief Anthony Spilotro (Nicky Santoro).
The film is as equally big and glamorous as it is violent and appalling. It shows the incredible complexity of that kind of life and how things can come crashing down so easily.
If it can be agreed upon that the Godfather series is the standard by which all others are typically judged, this film deserves to be recognized in the same vein, in it's own right. Just like the Godfather, you can't watch even 30 seconds of it, without being sucked in, until the end. It’s inescapable.

As I paid £3.44 it's not worth taking the trouble to return it but If I could be sure of getting a good quality copy, I'd buy it again at twice or three times the price. Disappointed
One of the best gangster movies ever
How wrong I was.
Very Boring and Very dated.
Cant believe I wasn't nearly 3hrs watching this.
Casino often gets overshadowed by the superior Goodfellas, and although it follows many of the same stylistic beats, Casino is its own film with a greater emphasis on character relationships and a longer, more leisurely examination of their fall. While, as a whole, it's not as great as his late 70's /early 80's movies, I think Scorsese produces some of his best scenes here (the desert meeting for one) and it is all stunning to look at. Sharon Stone is extraordinary.
De Niro and Pesci are excellent and I think that this is probably the greatest gangster film ever made, after Goodfellas.
A must for every DVD collection.
