Capone starring Tom Hardy as the infamous gangster has just dropped on Netflix, and as such, you'd expect social media to be awash with hype around the film - but it's not quite panned out that way. Watch the trailer here:

It seems a lot of people have been left severely disappointed by the biopic, with some going as far as saying it was one of the worst movies they've ever seen.

See for yourself here:


You get the idea. The reviews are just as damning on Rotten Tomatoes too, where the film has an audience score of 25 percent.

One half star review reads: "I couldn't stand it, incredibly boring and pointless. I was hoping for something more like The Irishman, something showing the earlier years and Capone looking back at his highs and lows, but this was just boring.

"The half a star is for casting the story well but the film could have been so much more."

Another reads: "Capone is just bad. Not even Tom Hardy can save this movie for how bad it is."

And another for good measure: "Very boring and not much to it. Tom Hardy does good as possible in the role."

Indeed, Tom Hardy's portrayal of Capone seems to be the film's saving grace, elevating the movie to a middling overall rating of 4.7 on iMBD and 46 percent on Metacritic.

So if you really love Hardy and you've got nothing better to do (high chance of that), then it might be worth a go.
