“J. Edgar”

Despite what some critics had reported and because of Clint Eastwood (director) and Leonardo DiCaprio, we saw “J. Edgar.” Hmmm. We were looking for more than bits and pieces of history. The movie focused mostly on the man and his foibles. Maybe Eastwood was trying to relate too many pieces of a complex puzzle. Back and forth it went between young and old Hoover with smatterings of major events. It was okay, I guess.

If nothing else, “J. Edgar” emphasizes DiCaprio’s extraordinary talent. However, he is going to be old before his time if he continues to take such intense roles. Lighten up, Leo!

Rating:  2.9 out of 5 stars.
