This is a thrilling picture that merges [Scorsese's] gritty style and his adoration of old-fashioned Hollywood. The production design alone makes the film a must-see.

DiCaprio as Hughes is nothing short of captivating, and his performance here, easily the best of his career, is certain to land him an Academy Awards nomination.

'Gran estilo visual, elenco multiestelar, una estupenda banda sonora y la dirección de un inmortal del cine, la hacen una experiencia fílmica más que interesante y compleja'

Millions of dollars were wasted in Hughes' stumble to infamy, and I'm hard-pressed to get too upset by his romancing starlets or peeing in a bottle.

Another of [Scorsese's] masterpieces, crowded with superb performances. It may be two and a half hours long, but it comes at you like a B-52 bomber, and it flies by.

A cierta altura, El Aviador es cine puro, o las herramientas del cine aprovechadas como nunca al servicio de una historia.

DiCaprio remains a lightweight presence, a cherubic man-child who one could sooner imagine fiddling with an Airfix set and glue than spearheading the adventure of modern aviation.

Scorsese's first historical epic to build on the promise of Last Temptation traces Hughes' formative successes with the thrill and vision of great pop storytelling.

With Gangs of New York, DiCaprio and Scorsese came close to making a masterpiece; with The Aviator, they might just have got there.

If I were to name a most overrated film of 2004 it would be Martin Scorsese's Hughes biopic ...

The fact is the depth of Scorsese's latest never quite justifies its length.

Un mundo donde la cabina es pequeña, la velocidad y el ritmo acelerados, no hay cabida para la razón, y la vida se vive en un instante.
