Critic Reviews of "J. Edgar"The New RepublicJune 20, 2013
The Hoover material is ugly and very American, and it might have made an authentic monster story. But the picture offered is muddled, cautious, and at cross purposes.Time OutJanuary 17, 2012
A pleasing, intelligent film happy to describe Hoover's behaviour as monstrous but too balanced and searching to damn him as a monster.Detroit NewsNovember 11, 2011
Somehow J. Edgar manages to be both epic and empty.Globe and MailNovember 11, 2011
Usually the tautest of directors, Clint Eastwood has gone all slack here, allowing his subject to get completely away from him.Newark Star-LedgerNovember 11, 2011
Although Hoover's luster faded as his career went on, Eastwood's movie seems wan from the start.Film.comNovember 11, 2011
Here's that J. Edgar Hoover biopic you asked for, or at least something that meets all the technical requirements to be considered one.Bust MagazineOctober 24, 2016
Anyone smell an Oscar?Epoch TimesJuly 03, 2016
J Edgar Hoover, at least as presented here, was not a particularly interesting or likeable individual. It gets boring quickly.In These TimesApril 13, 2016
A large, self-important, incident-by-incident biopic crammed with luxuriant period detail, laden with old-age make-up and powered by meticulous but riskless acting.Philadelphia WeeklyMay 03, 2015
It's a deeply silly movie. American history as kitsch, played out like a drag show.Eye for FilmSeptember 26, 2013
With noirish lighting and most of the running time spent inside offices or cramped domestic rooms, Eastwood keeps the film claustrophobic, sometimes unpleasantly intimate.The Patriot LedgerMay 26, 2013
DiCaprio never measures up to the task of creating a plausible interpretation of what enabled Hoover to be both heroic and maniacal.
