Director/co-star Danny DeVito's unforgettable epic stars Jack Nicholson as Jimmy Hoffa, the legendary Teamster boss whose mysterious disappearance has never been explained. The film traces Hoffa's passionate struggle to shape the nation's most influential labor union, his relationship with the Mob, and his subsequent conviction and prison term at the hand of Robert Kennedy.
Feature film making at its best.
It's a picture in which one can really appreciate all aspects of the production. Costume, Set Construction, and Art Departments all take center stage with this multi period piece. Great photography with classic grit. It's a great role for Jack and a thrill to watch. Good the first time. Great the second.
Hoffa is a excellent film. The directing, storytelling, screenplay and acting are all brilliantly done. Jack Nicholson and Danny Devito both deliever amazing acting preformances. Jack Nicholson has outdone himself and this is one of his best films that I have seen. I have no beef with this movie. It is perfect in everyway. Though the beginging is sort of hard to follow. Nonetheless, this film shows what can happen when a excellent script, amazing actors and surberb directing all come togeather to make one amazing film. There is also a twist ending that is sure to leave you shocked. 5 stars for this beyond brilliant movie!
Very well done
I had never made time for this film in the past and can't believe that I didn't get to it sooner. Superb in regards to storytelling, acting, production design, and direction. Danny DeVito had a clear vision and presented it in a wonderful way. I would recommend this to anyone with interests in biography works and late American History.
