    If you've seen the documentaries you've seen the film. Nothing to get excited about.
  • Wow!

    By ummm...what?!
    The trailer really gives a good impression and it's such a tense film. It's nice to see Zac Efron taking serious, rewarding roles;)

    As a Kennedy fan, I was looking forward to this. Although this isn't a film about the Kennedys, but rather others whose lives were affected on November 22nd, 1963, this is still a great film. It takes you into the drama of the day, more so as the film goes on, to the extent that by the end you get a real sense of the tragedy that America suffered on that day, and arguably has still not recovered from. A moving, intimate recreation of the events of the assassination to the funeral of JFK and Lee Harvey Oswald and a fitting tribute to a big moment in American history 50 years on.

    I had the pleasure to see this at it's premiere in London and thereafter at a cinema near me. It's covers a side to the JFK shooting that has never been told before that which is by the people closest to the event on that historical day. A very astounding dramatical, thought provoking piece of factual events. All the actors including Paul Giamatti, Zac Efron, Jackie Weaver, Bob Thorton give a seriously talented performance. Tom Welling was a surprise welcome to the cast and screen, remembered mostly for his acting skills in Smallville as Clark Kent. His feature in the movie was a small part but hopefully enough to see more of him on the big screen, after seeing the command he had over his character role. I can't believe I have to wait so long to buy it and watch it again I hope they bring the date forward.
