Quotes

Crawford: Do you know what the difference is, sir, between Adolf Hitler and Al Capone? Hitler's dead. Capone lives like a king in Florida. Maybe he's crazy, maybe he's not. All I know is, a man who spends his entire life lying to everyone about everything, the truth rots in there. Let's catch some of his marbles on their way out.

Tom hardy needs to work only with the likes of Scorsese/Tarantino.
12 May 2020 | by yhoha_2001See all my reviews

We've seen many great performances put to screen by Hardy, beginning with Bronson, which gave him the attention he needed, and ending with this one.

But with Capone, it was really only Hardy, plus Linda Cardellini's (with little screen-time) usual great work. We've seen many great acting talents wasted on poor screenplays and directing, which we hope not to see in the likes of Tom Hardy.

His only Oscar nomination was while working with a great director in Alejandro Iñárritu, but that was only it. If he takes the Leonardo DiCaprio route and only work with great directors (e.g. Scorsese, Tarantino, Nolan, Spielberg and Cameron), we would most definitely see the best in him, and him getting the appreciation he deserves.

We don't know what was intended with this movie, but whatever they had planned, Hardy did just enough to make it work. It may seem as an unconventional parodying performance, or just absolute madness-portraying.

If you appreciate great acting, watch this movie. Otherwise, you might want to look out for better plot experiences.
