By Variety
Any movie in which the longtime FBI honcho features as the central character must supply some insight into what made him tick, or suffer from the reality that the Bureau's exploits were far more interesting than the bureaucrat who ran it -- a dilemma J. Edgar never rises above.

By Andrew O'Hehir - Salon.com
J. Edgar turns out to be one of the worst ideas anybody's ever had, a mendacious, muddled, sub-mediocre mess that turns some of the most explosive episodes of the 20th century into bad domestic melodrama and refuses to take any clear position on one of American history's most controversial figures.

By Ann Hornaday - Washington Post
All of it makes for a rollicking, outsize tale of overweening ambition and palace intrigue, but J. Edgar instead plays it safe in a turgid, back-and-forth series of tableaux that look as if they were filmed from behind a scrim soaked in weak tea.

By Bill Goodykoontz - Arizona Republic
It is flawed but ultimately captivating.
75
By Claudia Puig - USA Today
J. Edgar shines a probing beam of light on a man who was widely feared, often disliked, but rarely understood.
50
By Dana Stevens - Slate
Whether unintentionally or by design, the movie never really makes a case either for or against the troubled figure at its center.
70
By David Denby - The New Yorker
No stranger man - not even Nixon - has ever been at the center of an American epic.
40
By David Edelstein - New York Magazine (Vulture)
It's too bad J. Edgar is so shapeless and turgid and ham-handed, so rich in bad lines and worse readings. Not DiCaprio, though.
