- “So long as Casino stays focused on the excesses – of language, of violence, of ambition – in the life-styles of the rich and infamous, it remains a smart, knowing, if often repetitive, spectacle.” – TIME Magazine
- “Martin Scorsese's intimate epic about money, sex and brute force is a grandly conceived study of what happens to goodfellas from the mean streets when they outstrip their wildest dreams and achieve the pinnacle of wealth and power.” – Variety
- “Casino is superbly acted and quite astonishingly obsessive about detail, money, and the mob's decline.” – Film4
