Robert DeNiro (Sam 'Ace' Rothstein), Sharon Stone (Ginger McKenna), Joe Pesci (Nicky Santoro), James Woods (Lester Diamond), Don Rickles (Billy Sherbet), Alan King (Andy Stone), Kevin Pollak (Phillip Green), L. Q. Jones (Pat Webb)

A step down from Goodfellas, but still a great gangster movie from auteur Martin Scorsese.
Robert DeNiro plays Sam 'Ace' Rothstein, a former gambler who is put in charge of a Mafia-controlled casino, his attempts to run the casino honestly fall apart however when mobster Nicky Santoro (Pesci) gets involved.
DeNiro delivers a good performance and Joe Pesci's character is even crazier than the one he portrayed in Goodfellas, but the films true surprise is Sharon Stone as Rothstein's drug addict wife with a penchant for embezzling.
It may not be Goodfellas, but it's still very good.
7/10
