3 out of 10 Odd one
Ciaran from Dublin, 25 Jul 2007
Scorcese goes all out to portray the life and times of the famous recluse, Howard Hughes. The movie covers most of his life and DiCaprio is very good but the problem is the movie is just too long. It really does feel like it is dragging late on but the early parts are good.

4 out of 10 The Aviator
James from Limerick, 25 Nov 2008
Fascinating subject, brought to colourful life by Scorsese. Very entertaining, and good to see DeCaprio back on track. Extremely rare mis-fire from Blanchett as Hepburn, though. She di not convince me. Best bit? Testing that new twin-prop over Hollywood.

As a film-maker, Howard Hughes was prone to producing epics so grand in scale that they were virtually unworkable. Sadly, Scorsese has made a similar error with this biopic. Yawnsome.

What's it about....
Martin Scorsese's THE AVIATOR is a lavish spectacle of a motion picture that harks back to Hollywood's Golden Era in telling the story of Howard Hughes, one of 20th-century America's most pioneering and influential figures. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the eccentric billionaire, Scorsese's biopic concentrates on Hughes's life between the 1920s and '40s, when he made some of his most striking contributions to both the film and aviation industries.
