Leonardo DiCaprio plays Frank Abagnale Jr.; a young and bright kid who can con with the best of them. How he got there is that he has learned from the best, his father. Things get shaky when his parents are undergoing investigations from the IRS and his mother wants to get a divorce. Not knowing what else to do, Frank runs away and tries his best to make it on his own by doing what he does best: con. Posing in many different occupations such as an airline co-pilot, a doctor, and a lawyer triggers a cat/mouse chase conducted by FBI agent Carl Hanratty (Hanks). The movie keeps your attention throughout and leaves you unsure of what's going to happen next.
I loved everything about this movie. It was ten times better than I thought it would've been, mainly because the trailers do mislead you (as many have said) into thinking that you're going to be seeing a whacky chase comedy with all sorts of shenanigans and mishaps. Well, yes it is a funny movie at times, but I don't think I would really label it as a comedy. A lot of the things that happen in the film are actually heartbreaking and sad. So be aware of that when you decide to buy a ticket for this one.
The performances were more than ingenious. Tom Hanks is as great as ever and really takes his role to the limit while DiCaprio also proves to be a fabulous actor as well, and also is able to show us there is life after "Titanic.Read more ›
Leonardo DiCaprio is utterly convincing as teenager Frank Abagnale, Jr. His considerable poise and confidence charm us immediately. Tom Hanks plays the stalwart FBI agent who chases Frank for years, forming an odd bond with him. Christopher Walken plays Frank's troubled father in his typically eerie style. There are many surprises and some chuckles along the way. This is a very enjoyable film about an amazingly resourceful young man. Enjoy!
Frank Abagnale Jr is a regular high school kid although when he changes school he decides that instead of taking the lessons he will give them instead and manages to pass himself off as a supply teacher for several months before someone detects his subterfuge. Devoted to his mother and father his parents divorce hits him very hard and shortly afterwards he runs away from home armed only with the cheque book his father gave him as a birthday present.
To give away much more of the plot and the escapades that Frank gets up to would be unfair and I’ll just say that if it wasn’t for the fact that the film is based on fact you would dismiss the possibilities of any of the action happen as sheer impossibility.
The film is almost perfectly cast, Leonardo DiCaprio is great as the charming Frank Jr and although his crimes are wrong and at times downright dangerous you can help but fall for the man’s charms. Tom Hanks is great value as the FBI agent sent to track Frank down and although his performance is more subdued.Read more ›
Steven Spielberg directs this incredible-but-true story of the young life of Frank Abagnale Jr. Following the traumatic divorce of his beloved parents (Christopher Walken and Nathalie Baye) in the 1960s, at age sixteen Abagnale (Leonardo DiCaprio) goes AWOL, becoming a prodigious cheque forger and impersonator of a Pan-Am pilot, a doctor and lawyer. Soon he has the FBI fraud squad on his trail, in particular dogged agent Carl Hanratty (Tom Hanks), who carries on a game of cat-and-mouse with Abagnale over a few years.
You will not be disappointed if you buy this movie. The special features on the double disc dvd are very good, and gives a great insight into the making of the film, and an interview with the real man, Frank Abagnale.
