Such a disappointment

"What's important at this time is to re-clarify the difference between hero and villain."

The word "okay" is the most apt adjective for 2011's J. Edgar, Clint Eastwood's unambitious but handsomely-mounted biopic of one of the most interesting men of the 20th Century. The direction is okay and the acting is merely okay... Apart from lavish sets and (mostly) stunning makeup, nothing s... read more

Almost completely different to the true story.

With perhaps the most successful actor turned director behind the camera and featuring one of the most popular actors in this current era, there seemed like there was nothing that was going to stop this becoming a huge success! Despite that there are various references that the film consists of that is beyond anything than Eastwood or DiCaprio have been part of, expectations were still high. Plus,... read more

Even with all the surprises that have characterized Clint Eastwood’s twilight film years, with their crepuscular tales of good and evil, the tenderness of the love story in “J. Edgar” comes as a shock. Anchored by a forceful, vulnerable Leonardo DiCaprio, who lays bare J. Edgar Hoover’s humanity, despite the odds and an impasto of old-coot movie makeup, this latest jolt from Mr. Eastwood i... read more

As the face of law enforcement in America for almost 50 years, J. Edgar Hoover was feared and admired, reviled and revered. But behind closed doors, he held secrets that would have destroyed his image, his career and his life.

"Klasik ama farklı amerikan gizli servis filmi. Leonardo DiCaprio'nun muazzam oyunculuğunuda es geçmemek gerekir. Eğer FBI olsun izlediğim filmde diyorsanız bu biyografi türündeki bu film sizi çok net doyuracaktır."

A complete review of Clint Eastwood's work (32 movies items)

" Cast : Leonardo DiCaprio, Naomi Watts, Judi Dench, Armie Hammer, Josh Lucas, Dermot Mulroney What was it about? J. Edgar Hoover, powerful head of the FBI for nearly 50 years, looks back on his professional and personal life. My two cents: The whole thing sounded great on paper: one of the best directors and one of the best actors working together on a biopic on one of the most notorious figures of the 20th century. Unfortunately, the whole thing was actually rather disappointing. Basic"

An average movie

“Even though it wasn't well received when it was released, since Clint Eastwood is one of the best directors at work nowadays, I still wanted to check it out. I mean, the whole thing sounded great on paper: one of the best directors and one of the best actors working together on a biopic on one of the most notorious figures of the 20th century. Unfortunately, the whole thing was indeed rather disappointing. Basically, they kind of messed up the script in my opinion. I mean, if we follow the story line, Hoover not only created the FBI, but was also a repressed homosexual, allegedly a cross dresser, a socially impaired borderline autistic fellow and his mother was apparently a b*tch as well. That was frankly a little too much too swallow as a viewer and a little too difficult to handle for th” read more

"Directed by Clint Eastwood and covers the relationship J Edgar had with his mother. Judi Dench is just great as his Mother."
