In early-1970s Las Vegas, low-level mobster Sam "Ace" Rothstein gets tapped by his bosses to head the Tangiers Casino. At first, he's a great success in the job, but over the years, problems with his loose-cannon enforcer Nicky Santoro, his ex-hustler wife Ginger, her con-artist ex Lester Diamond and a handful of corrupt politicians put Sam in ever-increasing danger.

My Opinion : Lightning speed scorsese pacing makes most of this nearly three hour film almost never boring; partly also due to extremely well made scenes filled with great performances all around from De Niro, Pesci, Stone and furthermore as they dive through this blood boiling crime drama. But it’s intricate plot can sometimes (though uncommon) confuse and does not lead to a perfectly smooth flight like its other contenders (Goodfellas, TWOWS, The Departed, etc). 79/100
