This is a another great "mob"
movie about the rackets in Las Vegas with the gambling
industry and the personalities involved in this tale. There's also the romance
between the greatest of men, I say, Mr. Robert De Niro and the loveliest
of gals - Ms. Sharon Stone. These two have to learn to appreciate one another
more and realize they are up to the job of being fair loving and giving - if
giving their best to make the match work in worthy fashion as they certainly
could - and must in what is to come I believe.
There's an interesting moment when a corrupt Las Vegas Gambling official tells
own De Niro that "your people think this is their home, when it isn't at all"
He was referring obviously to some types down there who don't appreciate the
greatness that is the stuff of De Niro and his genre for industry creativity
and strength and idealistic goodness which comes fro the core. As such the
corrupt individual of an official should be on notice that his time making such
statements about the better people is at an end and that no doubt the thinking
on this will soon be reversed in the minds of sanely thinking fair people I
Joe Pesci's character sure does throw his weight around in this movie and is
unacceptably and insanely rude to De Niro and "underlings" as he sees them. He
finally gets put in his place for it in the minds of some I would suppose.
I do love Sharon Stone - great seeing her always - and forever more - amen!
