    This in my opinion is a fantastic character study on a very tough subject given most of Hoffa's dealings were very secretive for such a public figure. Now how much is fact and how much is fiction we will never know, but I am certain a great deal of what is portrayed in the film hits very close to home from what I have read on the subject. In any event, it is a very interesting film with great acting.

    Hoffa on Blu Ray is a great crisp clear video. Blu Ray edition is different from DVD. It has more special features. Get It and Watch It!
