Tom Hardy is a terrific actor. However, Capone is easily the worst performance of his career. This movie is so bad...

...that is what I like about it. It's a movie about a dying man trying not to die and looking back over his life with regret...

"Despite all these artists clicking on all cylinders - or maybe, in a perverse way, because of that - Capone never really engages its audience, keeping us at arm's length even as it probes the most private recesses of a character's psyche.

Even the most die-hard fans of [Tom] Hardy will have their patience tested by watching this mindless film, which has moments that are downright embarrassing to everyone involved in the movie.

Hardy's fascinatingly intense performance is the smelly adhesive binding together what often feels like a kind of bizarro revue or series of twisted vignettes: a biopic by way of a sideshow
June 26, 2020
To what extent Capone is biographical or autobiographical is part of its ignoble appeal. It's the rare biopic that takes a prominent figure and chooses to hone in on the period of their life furthest from what led them to prominence in the first place.

Capone jumps, from the word go, into a very odd, post-genre abyss.

Tom Hardy is the reason to watch here. That's it. He holds your attention long enough to invest in Capone's final days, even if the rest of the movie is way behind him.

Not even remotely appealing...pointless, they literally should not have made it.

Only an hour-and-forty-minutes, but it feels like The Irishman...

The whole vibe of Capone felt like the product of a strange elevator pitch where Boardwalk Empire interior b-roll meets Shutter Island. It goes for Hitchcock and comes up so short.
June 5, 2020
It's not as embarrassing as it could have been, but that doesn't save it from being a massive disappointment.

It's no more insightful than Geraldo Rivera's 1986 opening of "Al Capone's Vault" on live TV: It's built on promise, but in the end, there's nothing to see here.

You can tell, at least, that it's the story he wanted to tell, and that he's told it his way, despite what his critics might say. [Full review in Spanish]

Not just bad, but misguided. Who wanted to see a story of Al Capone in a diaper, slowly dying of syphilis?
May 24, 2020
A trippy and twisted biography of the final, undignified year in the life of the gangster Al Capone,

May 23, 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.
May 21, 2020
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]
