Reviews
Mine: Over long, kind of forgettable. Pretty.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Beatty gives the most forceful performance of his career as Benjamin ``Bugsy'' Siegel, the fabled crackpot gangster who helped build Las Vegas. Long but well-told tale manages to dodge gangster clichés. Beatty and Bening set off sparks together (just as they did in real life), and a strong supporting cast fleshes out James Toback's intelligent script (though Mantegna, as George Raft, is wasted). Keitel, cast as Mickey Cohen, played Siegel in the TV movie THE VIRGINIA HILL STORY. Oscar winner for Art Direction-Set Decoration and Costume Design.
