"J.Edger" wasn't much of a movie. Clint Eastwood has directed this movie as if it came from American History 101. Leonardo DiCaprio try to give a good perfromance, but came off with little energy. In make-up he looks like Charles Foster Kane from the 1941 movie "Citzen Kane." Also. there wasn't anything new about the first director of the FBI that I heard of before. It talks about How Hoover with his power has helped arrest some of the most dangerous crooks in American. But somehow, I never was drawn into the movie.

This is a good movie but not great. Leo is good in it but not great. I don't think there are any great revelations about J. Edgar here. And I didn't particularly like the almost black & white cinematography (as opposed to color) that was used here. I didn't think it enhanced the story much.

Actually I am a bit disappointed in both Eastwood and Leo on this one. Too bad too since I don't know how many chances Eastwood will get in the future....he's pushing his end now I think.
