A pretty good movie but it was a little slow. The story was ok and the acting was descent.

If one needs a bio for a term paper on Mr. Hover, Then this is the one to rent. Otherwise its just that......a very good bio. Rent anything esle for entertainment. While this movie, (as all Clint Movies) is really well done and Leonardo does a great acting job, Its just not that entertaining.

Not many redeeming qualities in this film. I was extremely dissatified with the storyline. The makeup was pitiful. I found myself asking \"how do they know any of this crap was said, or happened anywhere close to what was depicted in the movie?\". I had come to expect more from a Clint Eastwood directed movie.

Worst movie I saw in years. Very confusing. No real plot. Poor script. Totally disappointed.
