...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.

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

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.

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]

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.

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.

Eerily memorable. Not in the least thanks to Tom Hardy's fantastic performance. [Full review in Spanish]

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]

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 is grotesque, mildly disturbing and disorienting but requires a lot of patience to sit through to appreciate.

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.

The film is founded on some great ideas. But by fiendishly avoiding examinations beyond surface-level sentiments, it lays an egg.

Capone is a fascinating and intensely personal film, a reboot of Trank's career in all the best ways, and it provides the director with a solid foundation upon which he can rebuild.
May 14, 2020
At its worst, CAPONE needlessly obfuscates a moral journey told better by other crime dramas. At its best, it provides a unique lens through which to study a world famous icon of crime, stripped of muscular mythology to reveal the rotting pulp within

Tom Hardy delivers a fearsome, full-bodied performance that's riveting to watch, even if the film otherwise rather aimless.

Capone is a sad, disorienting, and challenging watch that won't be for everyone. Trank's ambitious and troublesome vision brought to life exactly how he sees it. Tom Hardy delivers this destructive wrecking ball of a performance.
