J. Edgar, with Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role, is at war with itself, and everyone loses...Mr. Eastwood's ponderous direction, a clumsy script by Dustin Lance Black and ghastly slatherings of old-age makeup all conspire to put the story at an emotional and historical distance. It's a partially animated waxworks. show more
Most disappointing, Eastwood's decades-spanning portrait reveals little about the man himself. show more
UNDER RATED MASTERPIECE
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.
