Okay, I admit it. Casino was basically a "Goodfellas II" in a sense. But, even so, I thought it was ALMOST as good as Goodfellas. (Goodfellas did flow a bit better and had a little better story.). I liked how Casino focused more around Deniro and Peschi. Their acting speaks for itself. And, what about Stone? That was clearly her best performance ever. Of course, there were other good performances in this movie, as well. However, Casino seemed to be considered a failure by many and not do nearly as good as Goodfellas. It surprises me a bit.
