Incredibly accurate portrayal of Howard Hughes and the events in his life in a compelling way. As usual, DiCaprio's acting is well done. He carefully explores the character of Howard Hughes and provides insight into the man.

Leonardo DiCaprio is fantastic. Really does a great job with not only the cocky Howard Hughes but also the illness he has too. Cate Blanchett and John C. Reilly are both really good too, I wish she had more screen time. The movie is really long but never felt like it, unlike some other Scorsese movies. Some of the CGI planes have not aged well but for the most part it looks pretty good.

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio team up for the Howard Hughes biopic The Aviator. The film follows the rise and personal struggles of notorious playboy Howard Hughes from his early days in Hollywood filming the infamous Hell’s Angels to his buyout and launch of TWA as a leading international airline. The plot lacks a traditional structure and instead tries to give an overall sense of Hughes’ life. However, the pacing is poor and kills the film’s momentum. Still, the all-star cast, which includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett, Kate Beckinsale, and Alec Baldwin, delivers some incredibly charismatic performances. While it has some production issues, overall The Aviator is a fascinating tale of drive and ambition.

What is the line between insanity and brilliance? Is it broad or thin? Does the one bleed into the other? *The Aviator*, Martin Scorcese's epic look at the life and times of Hoard Hughes, suggests that the two are intertwined, at least in this one man. The film follows him from his first crazy m More

This on-the-surface look at the life and times of one of America's most notorious recluses delivers plenty of dirt, if not much introspection. The mysterious Howard Hughes is certainly a tricky subject to nail down, with much of his daring decision-making and eventual descent into madness left o More
