The second Hoffa steps out of his car (which is the very first shot of the film), Jack Nicholson is nowhere to be seen. He not only disappears behind a bit of makeup, but his walk is different, his talk is different, his manners are different. He embodies the character from the moment we see him. That's a terrific tour de force performance from one of Hollywood's most gifted actors.

As for the film itself, the 140 minute length doesn't feel too long and DeVito's directing is a marvel to itself. A man who, that same year (1992) made me believe he was the Penguin in Batman Returns, made me realize one could act AND direct AND have great results. The actors truly give it their all and seeing this, we see faces that are now quite famous (John C. Reily) and others who are no longer with us (J. T. Walsh)... David Newman's score is also quite impressive, avoiding the usual pompous fanfare, and instead seems like it's trying to be a voice for the workers, for Hoffa's wishes to see the workers get the respect they deserve.

The film may not be without flaws or for anyone, in fact, but which film truly is?! It's got solid performances, topped by Nicholson, superb directing by DeVito, an all-star cast, marvelous music and quite a few special features. Since we hardly see the list of features, here they are for you to consider:

Commnentary by Danny DeVito, a conversation between DeVito and composer David Newman, DeVito's speech at the Teamsters Convention, Excised scenes, Historical News Coverage of the actual Hoffa, Personal Anecdotes from Teamsters members, Special shots, DeVito's 11 1/4, Siskel & Ebert's review (always nice to see the late great Ebert), Discussion after the read-through, production gallery, Hoffa shooting script, theatrical trailer, and a booklet.

An okay movie.

Hoffa was a larger-than-life figure. He rallied truckers to form the Teamsters Union when creating unions was a dangerous thing to do. The Teamsters gained power through strong-arm tactics, Hoffa came to think he was invincible and badda-bing!, he disappeared of the face of the earth.

Danny DeVito's treatment is boilerplate biography, moving back and forth from Hoffa's last fateful moments to key points in his career. Jack Nicholson is in fine shape here, though not at the top of his game. Not badly executed, but it didn't leave me wanting more, either.

One thing that turned me off is Danny DeVito's intro to Hoffa on this edition. It completely sets the wrong tone. He actually tap-dances to lighten up his intro. Do yourself a favour and skip that part of your journey.
