Where Scorsese does succeed, is in his casting of DeNiro. In "Goodfellas", DeNiro was underused but here he delivers some solid work. He has a less showy role than those around him, making it easy to overlook just how effortless he is. He's rarely offscreen for the entire 3 hours of the film and shows an absolutely commanding reservation.
Other great inclusions in the cast are a weasel like James Woods and a surprisingly outstanding Sharon Stone. She takes a back seat in the early stages but when she properly enters the fray, she delivers a very powerful and layered performance and the convincing catalyst for the unravelling of the characters' indulgent lifestyles. She was rightfully Oscar nominated for her work here and very unlucky not to win. It's a testament to these committed performances and Scorsese's expertise that this film still manages to stand alone as a very fine piece of cinema in it's own right.
Added to which, the lavish production design by Dante Ferretti and Robert Richardson's sublime cinematography bring the whole glitz, glamour and corruption of Las Vegas to fruition. An enthralling and intimate portrayal of the decline of the mob in the 's. It may not be as tightly constructed as "GoodFellas" but how many film's are or ever will be? If this is the only criticism that can be appointed to Casino then there's no point criticising at all. Another fine addition to Scorsese's canon.
Kind of a forgotten Scorsese, which is a shame. It's a little long, and a little over-narrated, but it's never boring, and visually - the car bomb that kicks it all off, especially - it's among his best work.
It may have been dismissed because, for Marty, it's cliche: But Sharon Stone, in all her 90s glory, steals plenty of scenes and earns her Oscar nomination, and works really well with James Woods, who could have easily been included in 's crowded Best Supporting Actor category. Competent to great work in every aspect, and though it might not blow you away anywhere, the craftsmanship shines through its every moment.

Edit Did You Know? Trivia At the scene where there are diamond buyers, the characters are actually speaking Persian, not Arabic. As Nicky and his brother are being buried in the desert grave, Dominick is dumped into the grave first and lands on his right side, facing right. The next time we see him, moments later, he is lying on his left side, and facing left as Nicky is dumped on top of him.
