5.0 out of 5 stars

"Hoffa", released in December of 1992, along other biopics
such as "Chaplin" and "Malcolm X", opened and faded in a snap at the box office. I will admit took a few liberties, but that's a minor quibble becuase this film had the courage to acknowledge what few could about Jimmy Hoffa: a patriot who fought for the well being of the common man.
DeVito and his crew made a searing biography, and Nicholson gave the performance of a lifetime. Those who love film owe it to themselves to take a look. Those who lived in the film's time period should give it a try. And every high school history class needs to see this film, to learn about a man they should never forget.
