It seems that Al Capone’s biopic, played by Tom Hardy, did not please fans. Recently launched on streaming in the UK, the production follows the final year of the dacoit’s life, when he settles in Florida after spending the last 10 years behind bars, struggling with his mental health.
The gangster was originally sentenced to 11 years in prison on charges of tax evasion, although he was released earlier due to ill-health. Al Capone was just 48 years old in January 1947, when he died in Palm Island, Florida, so Tom Hardy faced a long makeup job to grow old and look like a character.
But even this was not enough for fans to praise the film. On Twitter, some followers said it was “difficult” to watch the film, let alone finish it. One person wrote: “F ** k Capone on @netflix is 1h45min of my life, which I will never get. I love Tom Hardy, but it was just hard work”.
Another added, “Don’t waste your time watching #Capone. Tom Hardy is fantastic, but the story and everything. Meh”. One viewer joked, “I lost about 2 hours of Sunday’s possible time in Tom Hardy’s new film Capone.” One person was clear: “I watched the new Capone movie last night. In fact, one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. I like Tom Hardy as an actor and I love the gangster style. But it’s terrible Was. I gave up. ” Avoid after a time… ”.
The film features Kapone’s wife, Mae, as Linda Cardellini, FBI agent Crawford as Jack Lovden, Johnny as Matt Dillon, and Curlock as Kyle McLachlan.
