That established trade magazine The Hollywood Reporter Friday on the basis of the web site RottenTomatoes, which comments of authoritative journalists enumerates. It is after Staying Alive (1983) and Look who’s talking now! from 1993, the third film of the star this dubious honour falls.
Gotti talks about the new york mafia boss John Gotti, who in the nineties in New York managed. Travolta worked for almost seven years on the project. His wife, Kelly Preston, plays the role of the wife of Gotti.
The review of THR itself states that ’the film is terrible: poorly written, is deenergized, and at times ridiculous, and at the best moments, just boring. The reviewer of RogerEbert.com notes that ’Gotti may be a killer, but he deserved a better film than this’. According to the journalist of Blu-ray.com there were ’44 and producers involved in the project. And not one of them had the guts to ask the question why this onzinfilm had to be made’.
In total there were Friday night thirteen reviews published. Gotti experienced in may, the world premiere at the Cannes film festival and runs from this weekend in more than five hundred American cinemas. The drama is in the Netherlands at the end of July on dvd and blu-ray released.
