J. EDGAR (Clint Eastwood, 2011)

It was hard to take a biopic seriously when you could still see Leonardo DiCaprio behind all that latex. And I couldn’t just blame the bad make-up.

Leo was slowly becoming the biggest ham actor of his generation. He seemed to be desperately gunning for an Oscar with every acting trick he had learned working with great directors.

Sadly, not even Clint Eastwood or the weak material could save this movie from being a complete bore.

Rating: ★★☆☆☆
