Howard Hughes was an innovator and a risk taker. So it's ironic that Martin Scorsese's screen portrait of him is the least audacious and adventurous movie he's ever made. Leonardo DiCaprio does a captivating impression, but the script never quite brings its subject meaningfully to life. With Cate Blanchette, Alec Baldwin and, it goes without saying, Jude Law. (117 min, PG-13)
