    Gotti

    ★★★

    A pleasant surprise! I usually judge a great performance from a well known actor if you in the moment you watch the movie you forget the actor behind the role - and John Travolta really became Gotti here and I totally got emerged in the character.

Also a bad script, the only one who shined a little was Michael Rosenbaum.
