Capone Reviews

May 24, 2020
A trippy and twisted biography of the final, undignified year in the life of the gangster Al Capone,
May 24, 2020
Exquisite crassness... more expressive and memorably cracked than most films that were meant to be released in 2020? (Fatal, fetal and fecal, to boot.) It is an emetic and an education: Trank's every choice is bold, assured and oftentimes bravura.
May 22, 2020
British Hardy dramatizes the guilt that American actors avoid. As the most talented and charismatic actor of the millennium, Hardy displays his gifts modestly and shrewdly: Sickly pale Capone has a carrot stuck in his face where a stogie used to be.

Not so much a beguiling biopic as it is a whirligig of go-for-broke eccentricities, Capone is about as revealing of the storied 1920s Chicago gangster as a cutscene from a bargain-bin Scarface video game. But it's as looney as a flapper on a coke binge.

Eerily memorable. Not in the least thanks to Tom Hardy's fantastic performance. [Full review in Spanish]
May 19, 2020
In no way deep but a compelling exercise in style over substance.

[W]atching the star wheel around the estate wielding a solid-gold tommy gun while dressed in adult diapers is to witness a craziness that feels uniquely American and perhaps even more geographically precise than that.

The impossible cocktail of genres on which this movie is built makes it unique. [Full Review in Spanish]
May 18, 2020
A haunting and eerie portrait of the last year of Al Capone's life with a memorable performance from Tom Hardy. The original title Fonzo should have been kept.

Capone is a roadside accident of a movie - unfortunate and potentially gruesome, yet still oddly fascinating to look at...the biggest benefit to having seen it at all is the first-hand knowledge that yes, it really is that bizarre.

It's a trip you'd rather forget.
May 18, 2020
For better or for worse, Tom Hardy gives it his all in Capone, but the film is just too aimless and uncomfortable to be a worthwhile viewing experience.
May 18, 2020
Capone is is grotesque, mildly disturbing and disorienting but requires a lot of patience to sit through to appreciate.
May 18, 2020
Yes, somebody looked at this script, by director Josh Trank - who was languishing in director's jail in the wake of his intensely disliked "Fantastic Four" reboot of 2015 - and said, "Let's shoot this sucker!"
May 17, 2020
Josh Trank is wasted making four-quadrant blockbusters, as is Tom Hardy. If their time is spent making films with this level of skill, then I think it's time well spent, regardless if anyone enjoys it.
May 16, 2020
What we have here is more of a half-baked effort that feels strangely incomplete and hollow in most parts.
May 16, 2020
There was a story here, one that could have been captivating, but it became lost in sea of confusion. Unfocused to the core, Capone will leave viewers with more questions than answers.
May 15, 2020
Violent chronicle of gangster's final descent into dementia.
May 15, 2020
A baffling misfire. This is just terrible, but exquisitely so and must be seen.
May 15, 2020
It is so watch-ably unwatchable, it is magnificent... It's really true that when great actors make bad movies, they give the best terrible performances.
