A failure, but an interesting failure when you step back and contemplate the project as a whole. Not really anybody's idea of a good time at the cinema that, though, is it?
Eastwood failed to demonstrate the security detail Hoover had. I worked the Del Mar track and even loaded his lemo twice with food under a detail of 3 agents while others guarded him on the roof in the pressbox section and still others guarded the elevator to that box. He never presented himself and friend in public areas and his security was equal to that of the President.

Clint Eastwood failed in a lot of other areas too, Thomas.
Catherine Bray's review is hilarious and very true. But I felt this movie was even worse than critics suggest. Taking an important subject and sh*tting all over it is less forgivable than disposable entertainment like some bad Adam Sandler film.
