Movie Reviews

Reviewed by Michael Ledo 9 / 10

There will be no compromise

The film starts on the day of the Kennedy assassination and then uses Johnson's rise to power as a subplot. Eventually they come together. The film concentrates on the passage of the Civil Rights Act and ignores everything else that happened during this time from Cuba to Vietnam. Woody Harrelson plays a colorful and slightly comedic LBJ. Bobby Kennedy (Michael Stahl-David) plays the main antagonist.

The film was an interesting behind the scenes drama of the workings of government. John Kennedy was the dreamer and LBJ was never expected to deliver.

Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity.

Excellent Characterization of LBJ

I was a young nurse during assassination of Kennedy and the following Viet Nam war and remember the toll it took on LBJ as evidenced in his public appearances. Many years later when I moved to Texas I toured the LBJ Ranch. I believe Woody Harrelson and Rob Reiner did an excellent job portraying a complicated man. Although definitely not wholly complimentary, the strength of his character, his commitment to his country and his valuing of human rights through education and the expression of personal liberty did do justice to the man and his life.

Not Bad

Very watchable. No real surprises. I'm not sure how accurate the portrayal is but Woody Harrelson is very good and holds the viewer throughout the entire movie. I don't think it will ever be the most revered politic drama ever but not a bad way to kill a couple of hours.
