The film is pretty terrible: poorly written, devoid of tension, ridiculous in spots and just plain dull in others.

Variety (USA)

It's almost laughable to see this iconic star trying so hard on behalf of a movie that is so clearly compromised in its intentions.

Los Angeles Times

Closing reportage of everyday New Yorkers brashly extolling Gotti's virtues upon his death, painting him, without any irony, as some kind of local hero, pretty much tells you where this picture's coming from.

Rolling Stone

Starring in this mobster biopic that deserves to get whacked is an offer Travolta should have refused. Insane testimonials from Gotti supporters at the end are as close as this s---show will ever get to good reviews.

Entertainment Weekly

It's not a good movie. But the blame can't be laid at its star's Ferragamo-shod feet.

New York Times

That the long-gestating crime drama Gotti is a dismal mess comes as no surprise. What does shock is just how multifaceted a dismal mess it is.

He may have been a murderer, but even Gotti deserved better than this.
