J. Edgar

Venom2796, blu-ray.com

  • Excerpt: It is nearly impossible to make a film about J. Edgar Hoover. He had so many secrets and nearly no one truly knew the man. And those who did, never talked about his personal life. Everything is pretty much just theorized.

  • Summary: The story about J. Edgar Hoover who was one of the most prominent faces of law enforcement for 50 years in the United States. This movie is directed by the great man himself (Clint Eastwood) and I thought this movie was going to be brilliant and I also thought this was going to be Leonardo DiCaprio...

Hoover...........

  • Excerpt: Upon it's initial theatrical release Director Clint Eastwood took some heat from Government and relatives of the late J. Edgar Hoover saying that this movie was no where near 'true' and it should not be shown to anyone.

A fascinating character study

  • Excerpt: J. Edgar based on the life of FBI director J. Edgar Hoover whose reign lasted nearly fifty years is excellent bio-drama with strong direction, a superb script and features an elite cast of first-rate talents including a demanding performance by Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role.

  • Summary: I was really looking forward to this movie because I had heard so many good reviews about it, but I was kind of dissepointed. It didn't have many highlights and I almost fell asleep when I was watching it.

Big disappointment

  • Excerpt: Dustin Lance Black and Clint Eastwood took what should have been a fascinating story and mangled it into a completely uninteresting movie. In short, it left out so much that should've been on screen and focused on the more boring details.

24 November 2011
  • Summary: This is a mostly boring film about a man who (if you can believe the film) didn't have a life. Just because the man had a lot of power over a long time doesn't make him a good subject for a dramatic film. The makeup job on the character Clyde Tolson in old age was rather grotesque.
