Reviews

Jack Nicholson stars in Danny DeVito's biopic about labour leader Jimmy Hoffa. Hoffa was president of The Teamsters, the most powerful American union, until his connections to organised crime were uncovered and he disappeared without a trace in 1975. The screenplay is by David Mamet.

Format: DVD
Danny De Vito's epic is an uncommonly ambitious, lavishly mounted biopic of the infamous Teamsters Union leader that sadly never lives up to that ambition and adds up to less than the sum of its parts. Jack Nicholson is more restrained than usual in the lead, but that ultimately goes for little as the film never gets close to Hoffa, who remains an emotional and political enigma throughout. Stylistic flourishes abound - De Vito has always been a visually imaginative director - and David Mamet's script delivers some good moments, but not enough of them to justify its scope or length. Ultimately Sylvester Stallone and Norman Jewison's flawed fictionalised take on Hoffa, F.I.S.T., is more satisfying and certainly more critical.

Whereas the Fox laserdisc that came out shortly after the film's release was packed with extras, most of which were carried over to the US Region 1 NTSC DVD - an enthusiastic commentary from De Vito, deleted scenes, news coverage of the Hoffa/Kennedy hearings, anecdotes from Teamster's, storyboards, on-set home movies, shooting script, stills galleries and more - the UK and European PAL releases are completely extras-free with only a decent 2.35:1 transfer going for it.

The boldness of director Danny DeVito's violent epic is matched by Nicholson's astonishing physical and vocal transformation into Jimmy Hoffa. An extremely underrated film. Well worth watching, again and again. A hugely underrated, passionate, powerful biopic. The performance by Nicholson is tremendous, and he really becomes Hoffa.

The bottom line is: watch out when mingling with mafia. At lest this is what the end of this movie suggests, even if Hoffa's actual disappearance remains a mystery.
Jack Nickolson is clearly great in this role, but I was particularly impressed by Danny de Vito (who also directed the movie) that, for once, plays a serious role.
It is a very good movie - recommended even if it is a bit long.

Jack Nicholson is not my favourite actor, but he is brilliant as Hoffa. Dany deVito gives one of his more serious performances and is so good at it. This is a great drama, superbly acted.

This is a fairly decent movie but not as good as I thought it might be. Danny De Vito's character swamps the movie - explained to me when the end credits listed him as a director, a producer and a few other things as well.

Not knowing about the subject I thought this was pretty good, however after watchin a detailed documentary on Hoffa I felt maybe they could have made a better film out if it. Still enjoyed it tho!

Anyone seeing the origional clips of Hoffa will be STUNNED at how well Jack Nicholson plays him- Danny DeVito-who also produced this film plays a charachter who is an amalgamtion of several charachters in actual fact,which enhances the plot and explains his rise,AND fall brilliantly- HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!! A++++
