Al Capone is one of the most notorious gangsters in the history of American crime. Not only did he rise to prominence during the prohibition era, but at the peak of his power, Capone almost ran the city of Chicago. As many know, the gangster was eventually arrested for tax evasion. Now, ‘Capone‘ tells us about the later stages of his life, after the notoriety was stripped away and banal anonymity remained. It paints a bleak picture of a man who was once larger than life, showing that crime does not pay. Curious to find out where you can stream the movie? We have got you covered and will walk you through the film’s plot.
What is Capone About?
The story picks up after Capone is released from prison. He is let out at 47 when his mind is rotting due to syphilis, and he’s no longer considered a threat. The plot follows his life in the year before his death at the age of 48. We see how he relocates to Palm Island in Florida and is under FBI observation.
Al Capone Film Amazon Prime
While many believed he was faking his mental illness, we see Capone plagued by the horrors and violence of his past. After a physical confrontation with his wife, she orders his bodyguards to keep everyone away from him. Alone with his thoughts, Capone’s mind devolves further until he reverts to a childlike state. He meets an ignominious ending as his family changes his name after his death, and the $10 million he had allegedly hidden is never recovered.
Is Capone on Netflix?
Netflix has a fantastic collection of crime movies, and while you cannot stream ‘Capone’ on the platform, do check out Martin Scorsese’s latest gangster saga, ‘The Irishman,’ instead. Much like ‘Capone,’ the film deals with the banal ending that awaits the supposedly glamorous life of crime led by members of the mafia.
Is Capone on Hulu?
Hulu does not have ‘Capone’ at the moment, but the platform does have an impressive roster to cater to everybody’s tastes. You can check out ‘Goodfellas,’ which is based on a true story. Yet another masterful offering from Scorsese, the film chronicles the rise of Henry Hill and the eventual brush with the law, which forces him to retreat into a life of anonymity in witness protection, far from the glory of the mob outfit he ran with, in younger days.

Where Can I Stream Capone Online?

Is Capone Out on DVD and BluRay?
Unfortunately, ‘Capone’ is not available on DVD or BluRay right now, but we expect it to come out around November 2020. At this moment, no preorder options are available, but we strongly suggest you avail the VOD options if you want to catch the movie immediately.
