And I'm comfortable enough in my manhood to admit that Leonardo DiCaprio is a damn good looking guy. Not a bad actor either.
For a while there he was really being typecast as a pretty boy, but "Catch Me If You Can" and "The Aviator" really gave me a lot of respect for him. He's a very good actor, indeed.
Okay, here's what I didn't like about it: maybe it's just because I went in with the wrong expectations, but I didn't really go for the ending. I guess I was expecting a kind-of-based-on-truth gangster movie and what I got was a gory twisted Quentin Tarantino type story where everyone get killed in a blood and gore shoot out. Not that I mind that type of movie just not what I expected. And if thats what you're making, why bother to base it on sort of real characters i.e. Frank Costello = Whitey? Anyhoo, pretty good flick.
