Format: Blu-ray
Quite possibly one of Leonardo Di Caprio's strongest performances proving once again that no shoes are too big to fill as he takes on the role of Howard Hughes, one of the great pioneers in modern aviation. Based on actual events, this bio-pic captures the essence of an unrelenting and at times eccentric business tycoon for whom the sky literally had no limit. Cate Blanchett also notably appears opposite to Di Caprio as silver screen icon, Katharine Hepburn, who, among several other Hollywood starlets at that time, was Mr. Hughes' on-and-off again love-interest and female companion. Of course, it almost goes without saying that the high-flying scenes throughout the film especially in high definition are spectacular while set and costume designs recreate and bring to life Hollywood's heyday in vibrant, uncompromising fashion. Two thumbs up - way up!

The Aviator traces the life of legendary billionaire, playboy, independent filmmaker, and aviation pioneer Howard Hughes from 1927 to 1947.

The story begins during production of Hughes' air battle epic Hell's Angels, delayed due to his fixation with insignificant details. When the end of filming coincided with the advent of talkies, Hughes reshot the entire picture with sound -- at a cost of $4 million, it was the most expensive picture ever made.

Hughes' obsession with aircraft would continue. He later bought TWA, set an air speed record, created a spy plane (and suffered extreme injuries and burns in a spectacular crash during its test flight), and also built and flew the infamous troop ship dubbed the Spruce Goose.

Leonardo DiCaprio shines as the tortured industrialist, despite his squeaky voice and the fact he bears no resemblance to Hughes. Completely assuming the role, it is the best performance of his career. Not only do we see Hughes' genius, but the beginnings of his OCD, paranoia, and fear of germs, all of which foreshadows the recluse to come. Cate Blanchett's portrayal of Katherine Hepburn, with whom Hughes had a lengthy and torrid relationship, is astounding; she perfectly recreates the unique vocalizations and bearing of the screen icon. Also appearing in smaller roles are Alan Alda, Alec Baldwin, Willem Dafoe, Kate Beckinsale as Ava Gardner, Jude Law as Errol Flynn, and singer Gwen Stefani as Jean Harlow.

Under the capable hands of director Martin Scorsese, the film is stylish and riveting. The story advances quickly with no extraneous scenes, but ends up being a little too long.

Format: DVD
i think the Aviator is a brilliant piece of work.Martin Scorcese did a
brilliant job directing it.but credit must also go to everyone else on
the crew,for the astonishing look of the film.The film is a biopic
about the early years of Howard Huges.it clocks in at close to 3
hours,but is so well paced,it is never boring.Leonardo DiCaprio plays
the role of Hughes,and i have to say he blew me away with his
performance.DiCaprio handles his scenes masterfully.The supporting cast
is also very good,including Alec Baldwin,Cate Blanchett,Alan Alda,among
others.i have no idea how factually accurate the movie is,but that's
why it's a biopic and not a documentary.I'm sure the filmmakers took
some liberties to make the film more appealing and relevant to today's
audiences.This is all in all,a brilliant effort from all involved.
5+++/5

Well..many people downplayed this movie, I can see why, if you can hold on through the first half hour, which is a little slow in story telling, you will find this a fascinating movie...so many twists and turns, DiCapreo shows exellence in acting Hughes, whom I wondered his part in aviation, now I know it's big deal...a trully strange and strong character, his loves include Hepburn and Gardner....you go inside Hollywood competition, the Story of TWA versus Pan Am...really very interesting movie, for that price...do not hesitate to buy...

I am lucky to have originally watched my first showing of “Aviator” back in 2005 through a movie theater in San Diego California (I use to live in California when I was still in the military). Aviator is a captivating movie that highlights Leonardo DiCaprio’s performance as Howard Hughes. The film captures Howard Hughes rise in wealth and fame during his lifetime through his work in aviation and the Hollywood film industry. There are multiple popular celebrities that featured in this film such as: Cate Blanchett, John Reilly,Kate Beckinsale, Alan Alda, Alec Baldwin, Jude Law, Gwen Stefani, Ian Holm, Danny Huston, and Brent Spiner. I admit that I purchased this dvd due to being a fan of DiCaprio’s acting and noticed the great bonuses which include:
Disc One:
Feature commentary by director Martin Scorcese, Editor Thelma Schoonmaker, and Producer Michael Mann, an image of Leonardo DiCaprio pictured with Kate Beckinsale
Disc Two (many multiple features such as):
Deleted Scene: Howard tells Ava about the car accident. A Life Without Limits: The Making Of The Aviator. The Role of Howard Hughes in Aviator history. There is also the image of Leonardo DiCaprio walking through a beach wearing a suit.
Modern Marvel Feature: A History channel documentary on Howard Hughes. A feature titled “The Affliction of Howard Hughes: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. OCD panel discussion with director Martin Scorcese, Leonardo DiCaprio, and feature of widow Terry Moore. An Evening with Leonardo DiCaprio and Alan Alda. The Visual effects of “Aviator” and Constructing the Aviator (the work of Dante Ferretti.
More disco two bonus features: Leonardo DiCaprio pictured with Gwen Stefani (in a scene from the movie) and another image of Kate Beckinsale.
