“Casino” is another blockbuster movie about gangsters directed by Martin Scorsese and based on real life events. The screenplay is based on the book with same name written by Nicholas Pileggi. This movie is very similar in many senses to the “Good Fellas” movie made by Martin Scorsese few years before, and again the story of this movie is nearly 100% true. Movie says that story is “adapted from a true story”, however, the amount of real life details is outstanding.
