Ginger e Sam si sposano, e hanno una figlia, Amy. Uno dei suoi uomini, dopo essersi comportato male per aver messo i piedi sul tavolo da gioco viene buttato fuori e picchiato da Sam, che comincia a manifestare il suo disagio nei confronti dei metodi di Nicky e dei suoi uomini.
A causa di essi, Nicky entra presto nel mirino dei poliziotti. Sam, invece, entra in un prestigioso circolo di uomini d'affari, il Vegas Valley Country Club.
In questa maniera, riesce a mandare una parte del ricavato sempre maggiore ai capi di Chicago, che lo spalleggiano.
Apprezzato ed onorato, Nicky diventa il boss di Las Vegas. Allo stesso tempo, Asso inizia la sua parabola discendente. Nonostante le pressioni, Sam non fa riassumere il ragazzo.
Contemporaneamente Phil Green ha dei problemi con Anna Scott, una sua collaboratrice di vecchia data, che lo cita in giudizio per avere una fetta della torta.
Ben presto le peggiori preoccupazioni di Asso iniziano a concretizzarsi, quando Nicky, senza il permesso dei capi, inizia ad eliminare tutti i propri avversari.
I federali cominciano a spiare con una certa frequenza Nicky, che, per confonderli, acquista strumenti tecnologici per lo spionaggio molto sofisticati e inizia a controllarli a sua volta.

Under the impression that they are attending a meetup in an Indiana cornfield, they are beaten with baseball bats, covered in quicklime , and buried alive in a shallow grave.
With the mob now out of licensing fronts, big corporations buy and demolish the casinos to make way for new, larger hotel casinos, which Sam laments.
He retires to San Diego and lives as a sports handicapper, ending up in his own words, "right back where I started". Bill Allison. Philip Suriano.

This is all well and good, but on the other hand, the gradual evolution can only happen because the film is so long--it clocks in just a couple minutes shy of 3 hours.
That's a bit too long for the story being told. By at least the halfway point, it starts to feel a bit draggy.
All the material is necessary to the story, but it could have been tightened up a lot more. While I like the songs--I've owned the CD since it came out and I listen to it often enough--and the songs can help set the mood for some scenes, they become a bit too incessant and overbearing for the story after awhile.
It begins to approach the dreaded "mix tape" mentality, where the songs are just there because the director wanted to share some bitchin' tunes that he likes a lot.
A bit of ebb and flow with the music, and music better correlated to the drama, would have worked even better.
Presumably, Scorsese was shooting for something like a sensory assault, since that's what you get in Vegas.
The visuals are filled with neon lights, flashy clothes I love Rothstein's suits , flashy people and such.
The soundtrack is probably meant to match. But in that case, if I were directing, I think I would have went for a combination of commissioned music that incorporated a lot of casino sounds, or that mimicked a lot of casino sounds--the cacophonous electronic symphony of various machines constantly going through their modes--with schmaltzy show tunes, ala Liza, Jerry Vale, Tom Jones, Wayne Newton, etc.
That Scorsese was trying to give a Vegas-styled sensory assault is also supported by the audio-visual contrast between the Vegas scenes and the scenes in other locations, such as Kansas City.
So I can understand the motivation, but I'm not sure the final result exactly worked. Of course the performances are exceptional, even if everyone is playing to type, except for maybe Woods.
The plot and characters are written and performed so that the viewer can see the disasters coming way before the characters can--and that's how it should be.
For example, as a viewer, you know as soon as it starts that it's a bad idea for Rothstein to kowtow to McKenna to win her hand in marriage, but Rothstein is blind in love and he ends up paying for it.
Everything unfolds almost a bit predictably in this respect, and another slight flaw is that we're shown the penultimate moment of the film right at the very beginning.
It tends to make it feel even more stretched out, as you keep anticipating that scene. But the slight flaws shouldn't stop anyone from seeing this film, and of course, quite a few viewers feel that there are no flaws at all.Convalida adesso l'inserimento. Alain Goldman.
