The life and times of Charlie Chaplin: from his first stage performance before the age of ten to Vaudeville, to Mack Sennett's movies, to making his own movies, to winning an Oscar. Robert Downey Jr. was a great casting choice in the film, the movie started of great but then the movie went a bit boring.

Good biopic that has some pretty funny moments.

Chaplin is a good film about Charlie Chaplin but not the greatest. The problems I had with it are common with biopics and that is their refusal to focus on something. You do not have to do this but the best biography pictures usually have something else to them that they focus on particularly. This goes from one thing to another slightly randomly and certainly nor perfectly. It can be a melodramatic at times, and can do the biography pictures skip where something that seemed important is forgotten about. That said I did enjoy the movie anyways it was interesting enough to watch, and looked good and was acted very well.

Fictional character George Hayden (Anthony Hopkins) talks to Charles Chaplin (Robert Downey Jr.) about his life. The impressive casting and screenplay did the movie justice. It does however lacks that entertainment value. It was interesting to learn Chaplin's roots and love life, though it has some laughable moments and Robert Downy Jr. did a splendid job of his portrayal. Best lines: Charlie Chaplin - "If you want to understand me, watch my movies." "Nothing quite like it. The feeling of film." and Hoover - "From my way of thinking, Motion Pictures are potentially the most influential form of communication ever invented. And there's no control over it." Chaplin is a good look at one of the motion picture geniuses/icons who ever existed while witnessing the golden age of "talkies" …
