Casino DVD Review
SRP: £19.99

Picture

Simply spectacular. Elaine and Saul Bass' elegiac title sequence in Chapter 1, 0:01:06; the constant barrage of neon from the Vegas strip bathes the screen in Chapter 2 0:04:44; Ginger's introduction at the casino in Chapter 3, 0:21:18 - every sequin and piece of jewellery is perfectly defined, and her dramatic exit shows the chips in absolute clarity (Chapter 3, 0:22:45); Nicky and his brother's demise in Chapter 15, 2:40:32, may be horrific, but it looks spectacular with the red blood juxtaposed against the greens and yellows of the surrounding fields.

Sound

Scorsese has done it again: one of the greatest music tracks in cinema history - every track evokes the period masterfully. For ambient sound on your 5.1 set-up, listen to the constant noise of the casino in Chapter 5, 0:32:25, or the battering Nicky's family takes in Chapter 15, 2:40:32.

Extras

Six language tracks, five different subtitle languages and a near-three hour movie doesn't leave much space for extras. Just a selection of notes and the original theatrical trailer.
