This movie is utterly without merit or interest. Trying to understand why it was even made is like trying to understand why anyone would still support Trump - it beggars credulity. At no point does one care for the Capone character and this renders the rest of the movie gratuitous (which much of it would still be - even if one cared...). I never write comments on library items, since my critical facility is a very low bar. However, if I can influence one person from seeing this movie, I will have served my purpose on earth.

I just don't buy into a psychopath being haunted by his past. Capone's remorse was probably getting caught for tax fraud.
Thought Tom Hardy did an okay job but a little too mumbled.
I was expecting the flashbacks to give more insight about his past killings & activities. Just a blur of nothing.

All I can say is I thank God this movie was only a hour and a half long. Hey, if your thing is to watch somebody poop and slobber all over themselves then this film is for you.

Well, no matter who you were once, a king, a priest or mob boss, it sucks to be old all the same, when you lose control of bladder, bowel and mind. Wanted to eject the DVD about half way through but finished it at 2X speed. Not entertaining and the little mystery in the story is little indeed. Want to get a mob film fix? Watch De Niro and Al Pacino in "The Irishman" instead.

There's an episode of the Simpsons where Mr. Burns is trying to find someone who can paint a satisfactory portrait of himself. He ends up hiring Marge to do it, cause she is toted as being able to find her subject's "inner beauty". Unable to do this for Mr. Burns, she instead ends up painting him buck naked, saying that for all his abhorrent, monstrous ways, he's still just a human being, as frail and vulnerable as anyone. To this a patron quips: "He's evil... but he'll die, so I like it!"
This movie is that Mr. Burns painting. A portrait of an abhorrent, monstrous man at the end of his life, reduced to a farting, slurring mess of what he was. There is no real redemption for Capone, just raw humanity and having to watch the horrors of what he did in his life replay in front of him. That's not going to be something most people want to sit through, understandably, but I was with it throughout!
He was evil, but he died, so I liked it!
(Incidentally: director Josh Trank was DEFINITELY making fun of Capone's genitalia.)

Tom Hardy was solid, but this film is a big meh.

One star because the role of Capone was well acted. For the most part, boring, stupid and a waste of time.

Very poor movie. Can't tell through most of it what is real and what is a hallucination. Since Capone couldn't communicate at that time of his life, the writer could do anything he wanted in the movie. Nowhere near a true story.

[as they are out fishing on a boat]
Al Capone: I hid ten million bucks.
Johnny: You did what?
Al Capone: I hid ten million bucks.
Johnny: You hid ten million bucks?
Al Capone: Yeah.
Johnny: Where?
Al Capone: I don’t f****ing know.
