    In every scene where he has to show emotion HE SHOUTS.

    I don't know, just not a big fan. He's usually in some good movies, but I find it rarely has anything to do with him. Like The Departed, his fake accent was horrible and his entire emotional ranges is SHOUTING but it was still a good movie.

    He gets intense often... but he has tons of range where he isn't yelling while being emotional.

    Don't let the superstar status thing mess with you.


    Have you seen The Aviator? (again)

    Those are scenes that would REQUIRE the character to be yelling or being loud. If he didn't do it that way, it'd be pretty weak...

    ... You're discrediting an actor for going all the way in intense moments.

    Well that makes sense. :suspect:

    What shows Leo's range is- in these movies, he's typically very balanced and the moments you're using are a contrast...






    Now. I guess he's limited because he's "yelling" when he has a bullet in him... so, here's this to follow:




    You're wrong.

    Dislike the guy all you'd like. Claiming he has no range or can't act? No.
