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. In 1988, at the age of 24, Gotti Jr. became a "made man," and was officially inducted into the Mafia, making him the heir-apparent to head the Gambino crime family and follow in his father's footsteps.

Not as bad as most people are saying
20 June 2018 | by rqwqSee all my reviews

I actually enjoyed this movie. It is flawed in the sense that it is really one sided and tends to glorify John Gotti instead of giving a warts and all depiction of his rise and fall in the Gambino family. To enjoy this movie you can't come into it cold, I think I enjoyed it more than most as I knew a lot of the history going into this and was familiar with the people and events depicted in the film. I think a person not familiar with John Gotti, Sammy Gravano, Frank De Cicco, the Gambino family and the other five families in New York would come out of this frustrated as this movie doesn't lay the groundwork, present their characters effectively or explain the relationships within the five families sufficient to tell a coherent story. In spite of the flaws I enjoyed this film and enjoyed John Travolta's performance.
