Dramatic retelling of former US President John F. Kennedy's assassination directed by Peter Landesman. Captured on camera by amateur film-maker and photographer Abraham Zapruder (Paul Giamatti), Kennedy (Brett Stimely)'s assassination was an event which shocked the whole world. A firm believer in the need for a transparent government, Kennedy had made as many friends as he had enemies which led to speculation on the identity of his killer, widely thought to have been a lone gunman. Following the events of his shooting and showing the people who had come into contact with him afterwards, including the doctors and staff of Parkland Hospital in Dallas, the film also recounts the manhunt by Agent Forrest Sorrels (Billy Bob Thornton) of the Secret Service for the president's apparent killer, former US Marine and Soviet defector Lee Harvey Oswald (Jeremy Strong).

The film doesn't add anything new to the discussion. It is a well made docu-drama, but as someone too familiar with the events and people involved, I found it on the boring side. The film included scenes such as getting the film developed, cleaning up the aftermath of the hospital, and removing seats from Air Force One. A younger generation who only know the event from history books might find the film more interesting and entertaining.
Too little, too slow, too boring.
WERE WHEN TOLD 'JFK' HAD BEEN ASSASSINATED.....well if like myself
you were around at that time, like myself you probably do.
The film was of course released to coincide with the forthcoming
anniversary of that chilling day in 'Dallas'
The film portrays the intense and desperate effort at 'Parkland' to
revive the mortally wounded President, followed by events that followed.
The arrest and subsequent killing of the suspect 'Lee Harvey Oswald'
The now famous 'Abraham Zabruder' filming of the entire incident that
he'd filmed from as close as 30 yards away.....what conclusion if any
would the Secret Service make of what had been captured on-film.
The authorities were frantically trying to make sense of what had taken
Perhaps skipped through to quickly, the film is a frantic and intense
account of the days following the incident.
The event remains on of the most talked and argued about happenings of
the 21st century.
Conspiracy Theories are many, could 'Lee Harvey Oswald' have been acting
alone ? ..Could he have got-off those three shots with the weapon he had
in the short time frame available to him ? ...Were other forces at work,
was it a ''HIT'' ?
Why was the body of the slain president removed so quickly from Parkland
There are, almost certainly answers to many of the questions out there, most
secret documents are released for public scrutiny after between 25-50 years
have passed, whatever is known about the JFK assassination will not be
made available for another 25 years............makes one wonder what is really
known about the killing.Read more ›
The book was intriguing in the way it simply stated the facts minute by minute and countered many famous conspiracy arguments by concluding that Oswald was in fact the lone gunman. Every event and conversation that took place is looked into with minute detail and the book, to me, is the most comprehensive study of the events that took place in Dallas in November 1963 that I have read to date, even though I question a number of the decisions Bugliosi comes to having examined the evidence. The book focuses on many lesser known aspects of the assassination and the following days leading up to Oswald's murder which was incredibly interesting. I was therefore very excited to see how the facts would be interpreted and portrayed on the big screen.
As a Kennedy assassination enthusiast I would say this film was good. Not brilliant, not wholly inspiring or enlightening, not awful, but good. 6/10, maybe 7 at a push. The movie was first and foremost a watchable film that told a good story. You do not need to know every detail about the assassination to enjoy this film. It was well acted by a sterling cast who were chosen not just for their acting ability but for their physical likeness to those in 1963, and it followed the facts of Bugliosi’s book closely.
However, those who choose to watch this film to see the famous events of the day re-enacted will be somewhat disappointed. I too was surprised to see some events portrayed in a different way than expected, such as the shots od the assassination itself being heard and not seen, witnessed only through the reactions of Zapruder whilst filming with his camera.Read more ›
