A great story told very poorly

It's bad enough this film took four directors, 44 producers and eight years to make, but then adding actor Kevin Connolly turned novice director, and two novice screenwriters made this film unbearable. The writing was a hack job and all over the place and the director clearly had issues directing his all-star cast, not to mention his poor choice of camera angles and annoying zoom in's that seemed to be filmed by a 10 year old with a 1990's HandyCam. The story itself was however very interesting and Travolta and the rest of the cast did the best they could with the convoluted mess the novice film-makers handed them. It's a very generous 6/10 from me.

God awful...

I am a huge mobster movie fan, and love the HBO special that came out back in the day with Armand Assante, but this was an absolutely atrocious attempt at portraying the most legendary mafia boss in history. It was so horribly directed, and boring, I turned it off in less than an hour. So many parts of it were inaccurate, and it jumped around in a way that was almost impossible to watch because I really didnt care about any of the characters based on how badly they were cast, including Travolta who I like as an actor usually. Do not watch this movie, it is an insult to Gotti fans that this was even produced.

Awfully Edited Confused Mess

The production run of Gotti went through a lot of turmoil and changes, which probably accounts for a lot of what this movie slipped on. The entire film, especially the first two acts, felt like a deleted scenes reel from a different movie. Very few seemed like they were trying to convey the same plot as the one before or after it. It felt like a compilation of random moments rather than a cohesive timeline. The story didn't build at all, the pacing was mindless. The audience never got to know and care about the characters before the movie submerges them into their deep drama. The film seems to imply its events hold great importance but it never convinces you that there's any reason to care about them. Most of this movie's issues are in the editing. This is some of the most amateur editing I've seen in theaters. Every conversation felt very unnatural with its pacing, and there was a good amount of cuts and transitions that felt very out of place and unintentionally artificial and weird. The visual effects could've been worse, but they were still very cartoon-ish. Much of this movie felt like production pulled someone off the street and told them to make a Scorsese movie. It's just a bad impression of Goodfellas. It doesn't pull it off well at all, it feels very confused and unfocused. The subtitles and narration were frustrating. It felt like production couldn't decide how exactly they were gonna tell this story, so they just went with narration, but also flash-forwards, but also subtitles, but also fourth-wall breaks- it was so confused and unnecessary. All of these elements were overdone and messy, almost like they started putting in effort and gave up halfway through. So much of what the film does with its presentation to help the audience understand is just confusing and frustrating. There was a Pitbull song playing at a block party set in the late 1980s. Not over the scene like a soundtrack, but in the scene as if it was coming from a speaker. It was almost embarrassing. None of the music choices made sense and it always felt very interrupting and out of place. John Travolta didn't do a necessarily bad job, but it was pretty inconsistent. In some scenes it felt believable and in some it felt like he was doing a bad SNL impression and reading off a teleprompter. No other performances stood out at all. The movie did pick up more at the end, where it felt like it got a little bit of a grasp on which story it wanted to tell and how it wanted to present itself. It was still hard for positives to shine through how sloppy and amateur the whole movie felt.
