  • Even when the film trips on its tall ambitions, you can't shake it off. show more

  • It's watchable and reasonably entertaining, to be sure. Eastwood doesn't make movies that are hard to sit through. But something in the film's point of view is off, not at cross-purposes, not contradictory, but incomplete, irrelevant and ever-so-faintly ridiculous. show more

  • J. Edgar shines a probing beam of light on a man who was widely feared, often disliked, but rarely understood. show more

    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.
