[4.00/10] Capone (2020)

Capone (2020)

Quick Review: It's finely-shot, and the always superb Tom Hardy turns in an intimidating, chilling and eerie portrayal as the mentally, physically, and financially broke Al, but script- wise, this is a galling, revolting, and often mortifying depiction of Fonse's final year, in which you can see him peeing and pooping his pants, then smoking a carrot instead of a cigar, and wearing a dipper, which comes across more as grotesque, shaming and needless than shocking, not to say it's a dull, muddled and sluggish biopic devoid of tension.

I read that despite Hardy's performance this was a misfire on most levels.

Alex, it really was. Often embarrassing to watch.
