Beatty is the vanity itself, but that's why this role is made for him. The great acting of Bening and their chemistry adds quite a bit to that. At times, hard, but ultimately a lump in the throat about Siegel's murder. Nice character study.

Sturdy cast in this smooth film about mob boss Ben Siegel in the forties in the States.

The character and weaknesses of the main character are clearly outlined, even a little too caricatured in the first part of the film.

Then follows the most fascinating, with the wild, extreme perseverance of Siegel, by the way excellently played by Warren Beaty, and as far as the acting is concerned, it cannot be denied that the presence of Kingsley, Keitel and beautiful Annette Bening made the film a pretty good one. provide an upgrade.

Excellent film about the charming gangster Ben Siegel who wants to build a large hotel in Las Vegas. This nicely dressed gangster movie is set in the 1940s and also looks like a gangster movie from that period. The duality of the main character is well portrayed by Warren Beatty and there is certainly chemistry between him and Annette Bening. A small 4.0 stars.
