Philip Bagnall watched
Try as Leonardo DiCaprio might, he's ultimately swamped by Baz Luhrmann's 3D behemoth. The rest of the cast vary from fine to badly miscast, massive swooping camera shots abound and the subtle motifs of Fitzgerald's novel are replaced with obvious symbols and fan-placating references.
Rather disappointing, old sport.
